Comprising established engineering and planning divisions, they have the reach into the both domestic and international markets which has enabled them to lead a number of high profile major infrastructure programmes, in addition to complex development projects.  The environmental division is equally well established and is looked upon with some kudos in the organisation, it has also been successful in acquiring new clients and projects such that considerable new resource will be added to the division over the next 12 months to allow it to grow and therefore maintain the quality of delivery for clients.   The range of services offered by the environmental division includes international finance & ESIA through to health and environmental risk assessment, however substantial growth will seen by environmental management and all elements of EIA teams,

It is noted that the Birmingham office is a focus for development by the CEO in the UK, with an office of 14 staff currently, this would likely more than double by acquisition by the end of the year, where there is an intention to move into a much larger prestigious central Birmingham office with room for sustained growth.  An individual joining the organisation at this time would capitalise on this expansion.
