International award sponsored by URS Scott Wilson

Supporting the International Award category at the BCI Awards was a natural choice for URS Scott Wilson this year.

The company has gone through some significant changes since late 2010 when the Scott Wilson Group was acquired by URS Corporation. The acquisition has expanded and diversified URS’ international operations and the integration of the two businesses has culminated in a much larger global footprint.

With approximately 48,000 employees, the company now has a network of offices in more than 40 countries. This brings many benefits to its staff as they have increased opportunities to participate in larger and more complex projects in more locations around the world.

A major attribute of the business is the powerful combination of its indigenous staff supported by the transportable skills of the wider company.

This approach facilitates the transfer of knowledge from one part of the world to another and allows the company to provide a wider range of services in many more markets and geographies.

As the BCI Awards celebrate technical excellence in the built environment, it is also important to recognise the significant contribution made by British firms outside the UK, especially as more and more companies are moving to establish themselves overseas in response to global growth prospects.

URS Scott Wilson is proud to sponsor this category as it reflects what the company does best − using its talent and resources where they are needed, regardless of location.
