South Coast RailThe South Coast Rail project will be under consideration for the North American Project of the Year, specifically for job creation, at next week’s North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C.  The forum is hosted by the globally recognized firm CG/LA Infrastructure.  Aconex, a global technology company providing mobile and web-based collaboration software for project information and process management,  is the official sponsor for the 2014 Project of the Year Awards.

“CG/LA Infrastructure spotlights the most consequential endeavors that deliver on near-term economic growth and opportunity creation,” said Norman F. Anderson, President and CEO of CG/LA Infrastructure. “The South Coast Rail project will create a new transit option for accessing jobs and services in Boston, and in doing help to reinvigorate South Coast communities.”

South Coast Rail Project Manager Jean Fox will present the project to more than 500 industry executives at the Infrastructure Leadership Forum. South Coast Rail will create commuter rail service from South Station in Boston to the South Coast and is expected to generate approximately one-half billion dollars in economic development each year.

“Not only will this project create a convenient method of travel for passengers, but also promote energy efficiency, improve the economy of both regions and stimulate employment since residents of the South Coast can conveniently commute to Boston,” Fox said. “I will be honored to discuss the creativity and technical prowess that brought it to reality with my industry peers at CG/LA’s North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum on Oct. 29.”

The North American Strategic Infrastructure Leadership Forum draws more than 500 industry executives from all aspects of an infrastructure project lifecycle – including lenders and investors, law, design, engineering and construction firms, and owner operators – to focus on projects with business opportunities available within the next 3-18 months. The forums are open to the public, and registration information can be found at www.cg-la.com/forums/nalf6.
