COWI Continue Expansion
Posted on: 15/11/2014

COWI, the Danish consultancy giant, have recently bought British tunnel engineering specialists Donaldson Associates Limited.

COWI is a worldwide consultancy which offers involvement within engineering, economics and environmental science; they boost their global presence by the fact of 19,000 live projects at any given time. COWI has been running successfully for over 80 years; however the past decade has been especially noteworthy for the Danish business. During the last decade they have experienced turnover growth, achieving a 32% growth in the past five years alone.

Such growth has been boosted by the acquisition of bridge specialists Flint & Neil back in 2008, and in recent weeks they have revealed that they have bought Donaldson Associates Limited, tunnel engineering specialists. This is a massive accomplishment for COWI, and stands as good progression in line with their current growth strategy said Lars-Peter Sobye, CEO of COWI.

Through the ownership of both Flint & Neil as well as Donaldson Associates, COWI is able to offer the world a consultancy that holds excellence in both bridge and tunnels. This has been shown by the Fehmarnbelt project, as pointed out by Flint & Neil Chief Executive David Mackenzie. This has displayed to the world that COWI is not a specialist, as it was commonly seen by the international community, and it is in fact a 360 consultancy which offers shared skills and expertise in a number of specialist areas.

With exponential growth seen in the past decade and major moves of growth such as this ongoing, COWI looks like a consultancy to watch and one can assume that this progress will only continue.
