Cowi has announced that it has established a new office in Singapore to support its work on major tunnelling projects in the region.
The consultant is involved with the forthcoming ShenZhong Link in China, the Karnaphuli Tunnel in Bangladesh and the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System Phase 2 in Singapore.
According to Cowi senior vice president of tunnels and underground structures Jotham Vizard, the new office is the perfect match with Cowi’s competencies and growth strategy.
“Southeast Asia is a big growth market for Cowi,” he said. “Singapore in particular has always been very attractive to us. The local engineering talent, the country’s sustainable approach to urban development, and the excellent location to build a platform to further expansion across the region were all favourable conditions when deciding to officially set up shop here.”
