Halcrow

Halcrow is one of UK's leading consultancies, with a pedigree stretching back to 1868. The company's founder, Thomas Meik, worked extensively on port, maritime and railway projects in northern England and Scotland. During the first half of the 20th century, William Halcrow (later Sir William) established the firm as a pioneering force in other areas, notably tunnelling. Halcrow's first commissions outside the UK were undertaken in the 1890s. Halcrow specialises in the provision of planning, design and management services for infrastructure development worldwide. With interests in transportation, water, maritime and property, the company is undertaking commissions in over 70 countries from a network of more than 90 offices. The most recent change was in 1997, when the various Halcrow businesses and departments became Halcrow Group Limited. Transportation, water and power, maritime and property are their specialisation sectors.

Their Inspiration:
Internal infrastructure enables them to develop project teams to precisely match the needs of clients. With an integrated approach, they are able to draw from the pool of skill and experience of the whole company and benefit from the flow of knowledge and people around the business.
