One global business

We are one global business providing a consistent quality of service to deliver great outcomes for our clients, wherever they are. As we continue to grow our footprint, we ensure that knowledge is transferred between people, regions and sectors to deliver the best outcomes for our clients.

This is our story

For more than 70 years we’ve been helping to deliver transformational programmes across the real estate, infrastructure and natural resources sectors, making a difference to people’s lives and ensuring a return on investment for our clients and their investors.

In that time the landscape for capital projects has continually evolved, and we’ve stayed ahead of the curve, bringing clear thinking and rigorous processes.

Where others see complexity, we’re one step ahead. With our proven methodologies, depth of experience and data and insights, we find a path to meet the ambitious goals our clients have set.

We too have set ourselves ambitious goals, and built a truly global business, transforming how we do things to make sure all of the knowledge and innovation we generate is shared throughout our global teams.

In an ever-changing world, as client challenges shift and pressures to deliver return on investment drive ever higher, we’ll keep finding new ways to make a difference. It’s not just an outcome we strive towards – it's one that drives us, and gives us our unique perspective on the world.
