One of the largest, and the longest established New Zealand-owned engineering and design consultancy, Harrison Grierson, has announced its merger with Wellington-based spatial information specialists, e-Spatial.
A media release from Harrison Grierson says it employs more than 350 people in eight offices across the country. Its four key market sectors are land and buildings, water and the environment, utilities, and transport.
e-Spatial’s expert services include spatial consulting, solution development, data management and technology.
The new stand-alone business unit will be called ‘e-Spatial, a Harrison Grierson company.’
This is the second merger in Harrison Grierson’s 132-year history and is a significant diversification for both companies, says managing director, Glen Cornelius. ‘With this new specialist offering, we can undertake a range of different projects for our clients, adding value and enjoying a competitive advantage in many areas.’
In February this year, Harrison Grierson merged with the traffic and transport engineering specialists, T2, to form a new business unit called HGT2.
