With over 140 years experience and operations in over 140 countries with a global workforce of 6,000, it is very encouraging to see an international consulting engineering company invest in the wider Peterborough area.
“I am also very pleased to see that the company has a decarbonising agenda and is pledged to net zero emissions. No doubt the company will continue to provide many sustainable solutions to its clients and help make a difference in the future to our environment and society.”
