CH2M Hill takeover could see Halcrow expand into maintenance

Incoming Halcrow chief executive Jacque Rast has told NCE that the consultant may make use of CH2M Hill’s capability to expand into operations and maintenance.

CH2M Hill works as a design and build contractor in a number of markets in the US, including transport, water, environmental remediation and energy. It also carries out operations and maintenance work in water and transport.

Rast said she would be looking to bring those skills to Halcrow, once the planned takeover completes in November.

“We have no plans at this time, but what we will look to do is take those skills and work with Halcrow to bring that competency,” she said.

Halcrow is already a major player in the UK highways maintenance market through its AOne+ joint venture with Colas and Costain.

It is currently the Highways Agency’s MAC service provider for Area 7 in the East Midlands, Area 10 in Manchester, Area 12 in Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire and Area 14 in the North East.

“Through AOne+ we already operate and maintain a third of England’s motorways and trunk roads. So this adds to our operations and maintenance work,” added outgoing chief executive Peter Gammie.
