Halcrow manager says firm has turned a corner

Consultancy firm Halcrow is on a “growth agenda” almost a year-and-half on from its acquisition by CH2M Hill, a senior employee has said.

A struggling Halcrow was bought by US firm CH2M Hill with losses of around $108m in November 2011.

Since then the parent company has been busy integrating the two firms and it has been widely reported that some sort of rebranding or name change will happen this year.

Adrian Manning, area manager for the UAE and Oman, said the firm's outlook was better this year following the difficult position of 2011.

“We’re on a growth agenda at the moment; we’re looking for improved turnover and improved profitability.

“When you do join two companies there’s got to be readjustment in the way you work and operate. There’s also got to be some change in structure, which we have gone through in the last year.

"We’ve come through the back of that now and we now have one management structure which was put together at the beginning of this year. We are operating together as one team.”

He said his office, along with other offices in the group, has also begun recruiting again this year.
