Prior to joining Arup, Guest recently delivered the Houston METRO Light Rail Expansion Project as project director for Parsons, who served as managing partner for the Houston Rapid Transit Joint Venture. Guest and his team were responsible for the ultimate delivery and closeout of the project that included design, construction, integration, testing, and commissioning of the associated electrical, signalling, and communications systems.
