The Paris office will strengthen our presence in a key growth area, allowing us to provide constructive expertise to clients both locally in France and wider in Europe. Our new office is housed in the same building as Atkins, which will offer further collaborative opportunities.
The decision to open a new office in Paris has followed an influx of opportunities in France and Central Europe, particularly within the pharmaceutical and energy sectors working with high profile clients such as ITER in the South of France and Michelin.
Commenting on the opening, Donald Lawson, worldwide chief executive, said, “This is a particularly exciting time for us. We have been growing strongly, especially on the back of new work in the pharmaceutical and energy sectors where we are working with EDF on their nuclear new build programme. It is the ideal time for us to increase our visibility within these key regions so that we can better help clients with their local needs in France and throughout central Europe.”
This new addition takes our total number of offices to 51 worldwide.
