One of the world’s leading engineering, environmental and
construction services companies, GHD, has adopted a single brand
for its operations across the UK.
The GHD name and brand bring together multidisciplinary
consulting engineering business GHD Livigunn, which was acquired in
May 2015, with the company’s transportation, business consulting
and environment businesses in the UK. As a result, clients can now
access an expanded portfolio of services, including asset
management, rail engineering, transport planning and environmental
With 300 people working together under the GHD banner in the UK,
the company is able to provide a compelling combination of services
across the water, energy and resources, environment, property and
buildings, and transportation markets.
According to Mark Ingram, General Manager – UK and Middle East,
“Our future growth will be based on the company’s local presence
and its international network, and we will continue to build on our
long term relationships with end-user, contractor, and regulated
“Our UK business is renowned for delivering award-winning and
cost-effective solutions that add value to our clients’ projects.
The GHD brand shows that we are part of a connected global network
of 8500 people that provides additional technical services for our
clients when required,” he says.
The company’s focus on offering innovative solutions to complex
challenges has earned a number of accolades already this year,
including prestigious industry awards for a sustainable flood
alleviation project in Shropshire, a water quality improvement
scheme in Cumbria and a social housing project in Yorkshire.
Mark adds, “Being able to draw on global capabilities is already
adding value to our UK clients. For example, teams in Australia are
collaborating with UK colleagues to design advanced thermal
treatment plants that will turn waste products into renewable
energy. In turn, our UK engineers are contributing their skills and
experience to designs of large structures in the UAE.
“As we look to the future, we continue to be passionate about
people and confident about challenges.”
