Following Singapore GP Pte Ltd’s four-year contract extension to host the FORMULA 1 SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX up to 2021, Faithful+Gould, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, will continue to provide project management services for this world-class event.

SNC-Lavalin acquired Faithful+Gould, part of WS Atkins plc on July 3, 2017.

Held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, it is the only night-time street race in the Formula 1® calendar, attracting an average of over 254,000 spectators annually since its debut in 2008. Faithful+Gould is responsible for overseeing the seamless construction and removal of the 5.065 km street racing circuit and supporting facilities such as lighting, grandstands and corporate facilities. Although construction begins four months before the race takes place, this is a year-round project that requires meticulous planning, careful scheduling and extensive communication and collaboration with race promoter Singapore GP Pte Ltd and multiple stakeholders, to ensure timely delivery.

“We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Singapore GP Pte Ltd. We have since developed a strong working relationship that continues to move forward, which is as a direct result of the hard work and dedication of our team," commented René Hillig, Faithful+Gould’s Director for South East Asia.

Congratulating René, Chris Birdsong, Atkins’ CEO for Asia Pacific said: "This is a special project - one that brings both social and economic benefit to Singapore alongside the excitement of the race itself. As a business that strives to build strong relationships with our clients, this renewal is a real accolade for everyone involved."
