Danish consultant Ramboll posted a 13% rise in its turnover in 2011 to €925M (£722M) aided by its takeover UK consultant Gifford, its annual results revealed today.
Profit rose 7% to £33.4M in the year ending 31 December 2011, while its year-on-year order book increased by 15%, from £314M to £359M.
Ramboll bought 14 companies in 2011 across the UK, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Poland, with the largest being Gifford.
The Danish firm’s order book was boosted in 2011 by major project wins such as lead design partner for Forth Replacement Crossing in Scotland. Other big wins included the detailed design contract of a 53km stretch of motorway in Finland, and a contract to refurbish a major onshore gas terminal in Germany.
