Grontmij takes up Sweco name
Engineering consultancy Grontmij UK has been rebranded Sweco, marking the completion of its acquisition by this European architecture and engineering consultancy. Grontmij was acquired last October by Sweco, which has its headquarters in Stockholm.
Sweco has 14 500 employees and sales of around £1.3 billion. In the UK the company employs 800 people and has particular expertise in energy, transportation, environment, asset management, sustainable buildings and water.
UK managing director Max Joy (pictured) said, ‘The UK construction industry is resurgent and presents us and our clients with a multitude of opportunities. Sweco has a distinct, intelligent approach to the way it consults, which is insight-driven and dedicated to planning and designing the communities and cities of the future. We are confident this formula will prove as successful here as it does throughout mainland Europe and the world.’
