HDR is expanding its multidisciplinary building engineering services by acquiring Hurley Palmer Flatt Group, headquartered in London.
Going forward, the firm will operate as HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt Group.
HPF Group is the UK’s leading independent engineering consultancy, providing solutions for the built environment. Services include mechanical, electrical and civil and structural engineering, with particular expertise in institutional, high-rise multi-use, financial and commercial ‘smart’ buildings. The firm also specialises in energy and sustainable ‘green’ building design.
This acquisition brings together HDR’s global practice with HPF Group’s strategic locations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. ‘HPF brings strong client relationships and specialised skill sets to HDR that, when combined with our capabilities, offer tremendous possibilities. By combining our teams of professionals, we will develop a stronger building engineering practice globally,’ said HDR Chairman and CEO, Eric Keen.
Paul Flatt, HPF Group Chairman and CEO, said: ‘HDR is the perfect strategic fit for Hurley Palmer Flatt Group.’
Paul will join HDR as Managing Director, having spent the majority of his career at Hurley Palmer Flatt, where he led the business through a phase of significant growth and transformed it into the largest privately owned international multidisciplinary engineering consultancy in the UK.
