Patrick Parsons acquire infrastructure engineering specialist THDA10/09/2017
Multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy Patrick Parsons continues its ambitious growth with the acquisition of Birmingham-based infrastructure engineering specialist THDA.
Headquartered in Newcastle, Patrick Parsons has more than 250 specialist engineers and provides design services across civil, structural, geo-environmental and M&E disciplines to blue-chip clients in the residential, commercial and infrastructure sectors.
Birmingham-based THDA specialises in the design of civil engineering infrastructure for development schemes such as major highways, roads, earthworks modelling and flood risk assessments, and will further strengthen Patrick Parsons’ national capabilities in this market. Headed up by Directors Paul Tinley and Stuart Hodgkiss, the firm was established in 2003 and clients include Goodman, Roxhill Developments, Gallagher Estates, Prologis and Land Securities/Henley Camland.
Peter Stienlet, managing director at Patrick Parsons, said: “The addition of THDA’s major commercial development infrastructure expertise is a strategic move to strengthen Patrick Parsons’ capability. We are delighted to have them onboard.”
Stuart Hodgkiss, director at THDA, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for THDA. We are confident that there is a perfect fit with Patrick Parsons and that all of our clients will continue to benefit from our expertise as well as from the greater depth of service and resources we will be able to provide as part of the Parsons Group.”
The acquisition follows hotly on the heels of the firm’s purchase of Manchester-based M&E consultancy BCM in May this year.
Stienlet continued: “We have enjoyed significant growth over the past ten years, both organically and through a targeted acquisition strategy, and have further plans to continue our expansion.”
Newcastle law firm Mincoffs advised Patrick Parsons on the both THDA and BCM acquisitions. Corporate partner Peter Robinson said “It has been fantastic to work with the team at Patrick Parsons on these deals. It’s great to see a North East based company grow into a national business and the next few years are going to be really exciting for Patrick Parsons.”
Patrick Parsons has offices in London, Glasgow, Huddersfield, Manchester, Chester, Birmingham, Guildford, Sydney and Dubai.
