Taiwan: Taiwan – US merger to help spur green infrastructure projects

The recent acquisition of a Taiwanese company by one of the United States’ largest technical and management support services providers is aimed at helping boost the sustainability of local public construction projects, company executives said Friday.

AECOM Technology Corp., which bought Capital Engineering Corp., a Taipei-based environmental and engineering consultancy firm, in January, will introduce “new ways” to help Taiwan’s sustainable development in green construction, said Sean Chiao, executive vice president of AECOM Asia.

Sustainable transportation projects developed by the company, for example, will involve green construction materials and well-rounded urban development, Chiao said.

Davy Huang, president of AECOM’s Taiwan branch, said AECOM has promoted green building designs for more than 20 years and was one of the pioneers in the field.

AECOM also co-organized a one-day forum in Taipei Friday on fostering low carbon development to build a sustainable Taiwan.
