RSK Group grows with acquisition of UK-wide chartered surveyor
RSK, the Wirral-based integrated environmental, engineering and technical services consultancy, has acquired chartered surveyors, CS2, for an undisclosed sum.
CS2 is one of the UK’s most reputable construction consultancies, offering a fully integrated service covering building surveying, cost consultancy, project management, construction consultancy, dilapidations, energy and sustainability.
Operating from seven UK offices – London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Edinburgh – CS2 has created an infrastructure to provide local service and knowledge to its national client base.
The offices service their regional business communities, while providing a local hub for the requirements of CS2’s wider national blue-chip client base.
The acquisition will see CS2 continuing to deliver innovative and customer-focused surveying and consultancy services to its clients.
CS2’s existing management team, headed by managing director Andrew Mather, will continue to lead the business, which will become part of RSK’s Geosciences and Engineering division. The entire workforce and brand will be retained as RSK and CS2 plans to grow the business in the years to come.
RSK chief executive and founder, Alan Ryder, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome CS2 into the group as they further our aim of providing end-to-end solutions for our clients.
“A company with a spirit of passion, partnership and performance is absolutely one that RSK can get behind. Our shared ethos will lead to fantastic opportunities that we look forward to exploring.”
Andrew Mather said: “CS2 is delighted to be on board and to be part of RSK’s strategic investment programme. RSK’s technical excellence across a huge range of services and sectors will be of significant interest and benefit to our clients.
“We are culturally and philosophically aligned and we shall continue to provide fantastic client service, delivered by technical experts.”
RSK is actively investing in the development of new businesses and bolt-on acquisitions, as well as equipment and facilities, to provide full service solutions to a wide, international client base.
