Bridge engineer Flint & Neill and tunnel and geotechnical specialist Donaldson Associates are to rebrand in line with parent company Cowi.
The aim is to improve market position and also share services and technical expertise on a global level.
“We welcome this step forward. It unites all activities under the Cowi brand worldwide, strengthening our relationships with our key clients,” said Cowi regional vice president for the global bridge tunnel and marine group Lars Hauge.
“Cowi is committed to delivering world-class skills and solutions and now firmly established in the UK, we have great opportunities to increase our offering.”
Bridge and structural engineer Flint & Neill has been part of Cowi since 2008.
“The passion and ingenuity that has characterised both Flint & Neill and Donaldson Associates will continue unchanged, but now combined we can collaborate more effectively as part of the Cowi Group. The names will change, but the staff that our clients have been working with will remain the same,” said Flint & Neill chief executive David MacKenzie.
“Our decision to move to the Cowi brand at this time is part of our wider strategy and we are looking forward to greater integration with an equally innovative and more geographically dispersed organisation.”
Donaldson Associates managing director Andy Sloan added: “Moving forward as one brand will improve our position in the market, and enable us to deliver a wider range of services, drawing on the technical expertise and resources in Cowi offices around the world.”
