Louis Berger, as part of the Consorcio PML2, took on a $32 million contract to oversee construction of Panama City Metro’s second line during a signing ceremony with Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela Rodríguez and senior government officials. Louis Berger is a U.S. $1 billion global professional services corporation that helps clients solve their most complex challenges of infrastructure and development.
“We are honored to play a key role in the second line of the Panama metro system and welcome the opportunity to assist in developing Panama’s transportation network,” said Sofia Berger, Louis Berger’s vice president in charge of Latin America and the Caribbean.
The Consorcio PML2—comprising Louis Berger and Spanish consultant partners Ayesa and Metropolitan Transports of Barcelona—was selected for the project after receiving the highest proposal score based on technical and economic criteria. Under the five-year, $32 million project, the consortium will supervise construction of Metro Line 2, a new 21-kilometer line that includes 16 stations. It is the second of four lines in the government’s plan to provide efficient, sustainable transport in the Panama City metropolitan area, which supports 1.2 million residents.
