Leading environmental, engineering, planning and management consultancy group Hyder Consulting has made a further acquisition in a deal worth £3.48 million.
After taking on Bettridge Turner & Partners in March, it has now acquired Cresswell Associates in a move designed to boost operations in environmental consultancy services, particularly in the areas of ecology, conservation and bio-diversity studies.
The existing 54 staff of Cresswell Associates will now join up with Hyder Consulting UK’s environmental business that operates in offices throughout the country.
“These developments represent a significant step in our ambition to be one of the top three environmental consultants in the UK within the next three years.”
Hyder’s ecologists, strategic environmentalists and other skilled consultants continue to work on a diverse range of projects, helping to sustain and develop communities in the UK and overseas from the Caribbean to the middle east and China.
