Atkins launches advisory business

handshake 2by3

Atkins has launched an advisory consulting business to help clients manage uncertainty and complexity in infrastructure delivery.

Atkins Acuity will combine the company’s engineering and master planning capability with new structuring, financing and project preparation expertise.

The initial focus will be on the Middle East, South East Asia and Africa markets across the transport, energy and infrastructure sectors.

“Atkins Acuity is a direct response to our client’s needs to deliver more rewarding and higher-value partnerships for infrastructure and energy investments,” said Atkins’ chief executive officer Uwe Krueger.

“We believe governments, corporates and financial institutions alike are frustrated at bottle-necks in programmes and a lack of delivery – the Atkins Acuity end-to-end advisory service is designed to help change that.”

Through the new business, Atkins aims to generate approximately £200M in revenues in a four to five year period.

Atkins Acuity has already secured new business in Turkey, Sri Lanka, Malawi, Kenya, Tanzania, Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi. In Sri Lanka the business is providing consultancy for the development of flood and drought risk mitigation investment plans, and in east and southern Africa it is helping to deliver sustainable energy through sector reform.

“By combining our engineering heritage with this broader offering of skill sets, our aim is to ensure upfront that projects are technically sound, properly structured and bankable in the international market,” said Atkins Acuity chief executive officer Dominic Harvey.

“We’ll support our clients for the long term, building legacy capability to make sure their teams are fully functional and fit for the future.”
