High-Point Rendel’s engineering division sold to Ingérop Group

French consultancy buys specialist civil and structural engineering division of High-Point Rendel and rebrands it as Rendel Limited.

High-Point Rendel has sold its civil and structural engineering division to French consultancy Ingérop. The new company, called Rendel Limited, will continue to work on engineering services in the bridges, geotechnical, highways, maritime and tunnelling sectors.

Rendel Limited managing director Vardaman Jones said: “We have worked with Ingérop over many years and believe the mix of our services complement each other, which in turn will bring greater benefits to our clients and staff.  We are very excited about the opportunities ahead of us as part of the Ingérop group.”

The two companies have already worked together on the New Europe Bridge that spans the Danube, linking Bulgaria and Romania. The partnership continued as part of the design team for the Balfour Beatty/Bouygues consortium for the tender design of the Mersey Gateway Project.
