Turner & Townsend has increased its presence in Asia with the acquisition of the 100-person, Hong Kong-based cost consultant H.A. Brechin.
"Asia is a significant growth market, and the merger with H.A. Brechin will substantially strengthen and broaden our local service offering," said Vincent Clancy, CEO, Turner & Townsend.
"The combination of H.A. Brechin’s local knowledge and reputation, and Turner & Townsend’s expertise in working on major global programmes, will further bolster our presence across mainland China," he added.
H.A. Brechin is working on some of Hong Kong’s largest infrastructure projects, including the expansion of Hong Kong airport and the city’s MTR metro system.
Its public sector clients include the Architectural Services Department, Hospital Authority and Highways Department.
Last month T&T announced it had bought 20-strong US-based consultant Larkspur Associates, which specialises in estimating services in the oil and gas, chemicals, power and minerals industries.
