GHD's Property & Buildings business has been strengthened with teams from Woodhead Architects and Protection Engineering Group joining us in April 2014.
These integrations will significantly enhance our architecture and engineering design capabilities.
An Australian-based, international architectural firm, Woodhead has offices in Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. The company has enjoyed a strong presence in the health, transport (particularly aviation), defence and education sectors.
In Australia, GHD has welcomed 45 people, whose knowledge and experience will expand our architecture, interior design and planning practice to meet the changing needs of the marketplace.
Protection Engineering Group
With broad capabilities in the buildings services sector, Protection Engineering Group will bolster our fire and life protection practice in the USA with 40 people joining us in offices in Washington DC, Baltimore and Atlanta. Our established relationship with the company is facilitating many operational synergies and added opportunities for our clients.
Commenting on the expansion, Ian Shepherd, GHD's CEO says, "We share similar values and culture with both organisations and believe that together we can build long term success and continue to improve our position in the industry."
