Hurley Palmer Flatt Group Joins HDR

We’re pleased to announce the acquisition of the Hurley Palmer Flatt Group. When we can connect with a firm that shares our level of commitment to clients, it’s an amazing opportunity. Today, we’ve taken this step on a global scale and have expanded our multidisciplinary building engineering services.

Hurley Palmer Flatt Group is headquartered in London, and the acquired entity comprises Hurley Palmer Flatt, Andrew Reid, Bradbrook Consulting and Concentre Consulting. Going forward, they will do business as HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt Group. Accordingly, firms that were previously acquired by the group will do business as HDR | Andrew Reid, HDR | Bradbrook Consulting and HDR | Concentre Consulting.

Established in 1968, the Hurley Palmer Flatt Group is the United Kingdom’s leading independent engineering consultancy, providing solutions for the built environment. Services include mechanical, electrical and plumbing; civil and structural engineering; and commissioning management, with particular expertise in institutional, high-rise multiuse, financial and commercial “smart” buildings. The firm also specializes in energy and sustainable “green” building design, and mission critical facilities and complex data centers, including digital management for buildings.

This acquisition brings together HDR’s global practice with Hurley Palmer Flatt Group’s strategic locations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and in the Asia-Pacific region. Together, we bring an impressive breadth and depth of services to our clients, always striving to make a difference in the work we do and in the communities where we live.
