Grontmij acquires UK Consultants Trett

European engineering consultancy Grontmij today announced the acquisition of commercial and contract consultancy, Trett. The acquisition strengthens the company’s building services and civil engineering consultancy with expertise in dispute resolution and commercial and contractual advice.

Trett’s 31 year experience in commercial and contract consultancy services expands Grontmij’s services portfolio to include advice and analysis on contractual claims, adjudication services, investigation of issues, dispute resolution, project planning support, pre and post contract advice, quantity surveying and insolvency and liquidation support.

Headquartered in London and with 18 offices across the UK, mainland Europe, the Middle East, the Asia Pacific region and the USA, Trett Consulting brings an additional 120 professionals to Grontmij’s 1,070 UK and Ireland employees. In 2007/8, its 30th year of trading, the company achieved turnover growth of 20% up to £15.8m.

Finance director for Grontmij UK & Ireland, David Sadler commented: “Dispute resolution and dispute avoidance is an area of business we have been investigating for some time, so we’re delighted to bring Trett Consulting on board.”

Executive chairman for Trett Consulting, Roger Trett said: “We already have a strong, established business in our specialist niche and joining forces with Grontmij will enable us to push the business into new areas faster than would otherwise be achievable. Our market area requires expert knowledge that is rarely found in larger organisations so we are confident that we can help Grontmij to deliver an integrated offering that surpasses much, if not all, of the competition.”

Trett Consulting will continue to operate under its existing brand name.
