DUTCH CONSULTANT DHV International was this week considering whether to pull out of the UK after running an office here for a decade.
It will make a final decision by May this year.
The firm, which has a £260M operation across some 35 countries, said 'internal reasons' rather than British market conditions have led it to review its position.
The firm set up the office initially to tackle overseas work rather than UK projects.
But the UK-staffed operation had become involved with Highways Agency work in recent years.
A source said the UK office was not a large part of the Dutch headquartered consultant's overall operation.
It continues to work in conjunction with firms like Sir Norman Foster which and has recently won work on Foster's Beijing International airport project.
DHV refused to comment further on details of decisions.
