Arcadis wins Ontario digital asset management contract

by Mark Cantrell

Global design and consultancy firm, Arcadis has won what is said to be a groundbreaking digital asset management contract with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) in Canada.

The five-year contract, with the option for an additional five-year renewal, is the largest enterprise decision analytics contract ever for Arcadis, and is considered a significant milestone for the company.

Leveraging state-of-the-art technology and innovative solutions, Arcadis will spearhead the transformation of MTO’s legacy systems, consolidating disparate assets into a centralised transportation asset management system.

Alan Brookes, chief executive of Arcadis said: “Digital asset management systems are critical to supporting transportation infrastructure globally, and have the added benefit of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating a more sustainable transportation system.

“This contract win represents a significant milestone for our Enterprise Decision Analytics solution and marks a critical update to the transportation infrastructure in Canada’s most populous province.”

The scope of the MTO project extends beyond highways and bridges to encompass assets including lighting, traffic signals, overhead signs, northern airports, and intelligent transportation systems.

By integrating these assets into a unified system, Arcadis aims to streamline and optimise investment planning, enhance data sharing, and enhance operational efficiency for MTO.

Rob Corazzola, global sales director, digital asset management at Arcadis, added: “We are committed to delivering exceptional value to MTO and the residents of Ontario. Through collaborative partnership and cutting-edge technology, we aim to help MTO optimize its investments while ensuring the timely maintenance, rehabilitation, and replacement of critical transportation assets. This will pave the way for a more sustainable and resilient transportation network across the entire province.”

By optimising maintenance schedules and prioritizing investments, Arcadis says its solution will enhance MTO’s ability to reduce the environmental footprint associated with its transportation infrastructure management. Reductions in the use of non-renewable resources and construction activities are among the benefits that will contribute to a more sustainable future for Ontario.
