With around 1,500 professionals located in 47 offices in the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe, we draw upon a wide range of experience and expertise to provide high-quality, high-value products and services.
From initial concept through to design, construction, operation, and eventual decommissioning, we support customers at every stage of the project lifecycle. Our customers across the world buy outcomes: cost-effective solutions to business problems that require technical excellence, independent thinking, and innovation.
Our values are the soul of our business. They define who we are, what we stand for, how we work and why we work in certain ways. Our aim is to help our customers operate their businesses in the most cost-effective, safe, reliable, and environmentally responsible manner.
Our combination of intellectual rigour and commercial insight has helped us to play an important and increasing role in industries as diverse as oil and gas, defence, renewable energy, ports, risk management and maritime transport.
We were established in 1985 by bringing together research and technology organisations that traced their roots back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Our customers value impartial, expert advice, and we appreciate the freedom to deliver it without any potential conflict of interest from external stakeholders.
As an independent company without shareholders, with the constitution of an Employee Benefit Trust, good corporate governance is of the utmost importance to us.
We strive to prevent harm coming to any of our staff members or others affected by the work we do, and to actively promote a positive culture of safety, health and wellbeing.
Innovation underpins who we are and what we do.
We contribute to global sustainable solutions through science, technology, and engineering.
