The international consultant IBI Group has announced it is to consolidate its brands in the UK. As of September 2014, IBI Nightingale and IBI Taylor Young will trade as IBI Group. IBI Group, a global architecture, planning, engineering, and technology firm first launched its UK transport and systems business in 1996.
As part of its diversification strategy it acquired architects Nightingale in 2010 and multidisciplinary practice Taylor Young in 2012. “The rebrand is a natural and important evolution,” said Stephen Gleave, Principal. “Being known by one name has many operational benefits. For clients it helps to simplify our business and for staff it creates a feeling of unity.”
