ARCADIS has continued its expansion with the acquisition of architecture and design firm Callison. With headquarters in Amsterdam, Callison has 11 offices across the world including bases in Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou.
Over the past seven years, built asset consultancy firm EC HARRIS, design firm RTKL, and construction program planning and value management consultancy Langdon & Seah have all been acquired by ARCADIS. Callison will join the firm in the third quarter of 2014.
“By leveraging Callison’s capabilities with those of our other top of class expertise companies within ARCADIS, we are creating a true leadership position in high end design and architecture,” said Neil McArthur, CEO of ARCADIS. “We will have the undisputed #1 position in retail globally, a strong leadership position in mixed-use/commercial and the clear #1 international design and architecture position in China.”
