NCE's exclusive ranking of Britain's top 260 consultants

NCE’s annual Consultants File is recognised by the industry and the City as the definitive document on the health and wealth of the UK civil engineering consultancy sector. This year’s listing contains details on 260 of Britain’s top consulting engineers.

Revealed here is what they do, where they work, who’s in charge and how much money they are bringing in. The accompanying rankings show how well the big names are doing and who the up-and-coming companies are in the key sectors of civil engineering.

Information in the listings is based on the results of a questionnaire survey of firms conducted by NCE in January 2009.

Only firms with 10 or more permanent or contract staff principally engaged in civil and structural engineering and associated work, or turnover of £500,000 in mainly civil and structural work, are included in the main table. Companies must be registered in the UK. Statistics are for the UK company operations, at home and abroad. Financial data for non wholly-owned overseas subsidiaries of the UK firm are included in proportion to the UK firm’s shareholding.

Notes to listings:

Atkins’ reduced turnover reflects the sale of Lambert Smith Hampton.

Parsons Brinckerhoff figures include UK, Europe, Africa and all international work excluding Americas.

RPS has split its fees across categories rather than listing them all under Environment as in previous years.

Amey’s figures relate to the consulting division of Amey.
