Cairns-born engineering company Flanagan Consulting Group will merge with global professional services company GHD from July 1.
The combined business will operate under the GHD brand, with 28 FCG employees joining GHD teams in Cairns, Townsville and Darwin.
“We are responding to our clients’ need for consultants who understand the project complexities in Northern Australia,” GHD general manager -Australia Phil Duthie said.
“Strategically, both GHD and FCG are committed to maintaining and growing our significant presence close to clients in North Queensland and Northern Territory.
“Together, we are expanding the expertise, leadership and capacity to deliver projects in the region, enhancing and growing services such as urban development, roads, building structures, environmental planning and project management.”
FCG chairman Pat Flanagan said the two businesses had partnered on numerous projects over a number of years.
“Joining a larger employee-owned organisation will give the FCG team new opportunities for personal and professional growth as part of GHD’s connected network across Australia and globally,” he said.
