AECOM Acquires HLA-Envirosciences

    Leading Australian environmental firm joins AECOM's ENSR unit

Corporation (NYSE:   ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and
management support services for government and commercial clients around the
world, has announced the acquisition of HLA-Envirosciences (HLA), an
environmental health and safety consulting and engineering firm with 250 staff
and nine offices across Australia.

    HLA will be aligned with ENSR, AECOM's global environmental management
business, which offers comprehensive environmental, health and safety services
to industry and government clients worldwide.

    ENSR and HLA will merge operations to provide greater project management
depth, expanded technical expertise and seamless service delivery for clients
worldwide. With more than 2,200 staff serving clients in offices around the
world, the combined firm has a strong presence throughout the United States,
Australia, Asia, Europe and Latin America.

    "The addition of HLA to the AECOM family is an important milestone in our
goal of continuing to expand our strong, global environmental offering to our
clients," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer.

    Bob Weber, ENSR president and chief executive officer, echoed Dionisio's
sentiment. "The collective capabilities of ENSR, HLA and AECOM's other
Australia-based businesses play a key role in strengthening our position as a
leading environmental specialist across the Australia and Asia markets."

    Like ENSR, HLA is an environmental management and health and safety
services firm that specializes in solving complex environmental problems
throughout the business life cycle - from new asset development to ongoing
operations, and final asset disposal and restoration. HLA brings to ENSR a
strong focus on the energy, mining and defense industries, and has been
recognized with multiple Consultant Excellence Awards from the Urban
Development Institute of Australia.

    "By joining forces with AECOM and ENSR, we can provide our clients with
greatly expanded services," said Chris Kidd, HLA's managing director and
senior principal. "For clients with international operations, we can offer a
much broader platform for service delivery."
