Davis Langdon and DEWG merge

Global construction consultancy Davis Langdon and strategic design consultants DEGW announced a merger on Monday.

DEGW is best known for its work consulting on high-performance workplaces for Fortune 500 companies. Their client list includes the likes of Microsoft, Google, GSK, Pfizer, Cisco, Nokia, RBS, Deutsche Bank, BP, BBC, Accenture, WPP, Unilever, Phillips, Shell and Vodafone. The firm employs 145 people globally in a network of 12 offices in the UK, mainland Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. The combined office network of the two organisations will provide a strong presence in mainland Europe. It will also further strengthen the Davis Langdon and Seah International office network worldwide.

On announcing the merger Rob Smith, Davis Langdon’s Senior Partner, said “The merger will add a fourth dimension to our offer in that we will now be able to measure, value and manage ‘place’ in addition to ‘cost’, ‘quality’ and ‘time’. In the current market, our clients are focusing on their costs – the biggest of which is usually their people and places. The coming together of the two firms will mean we are the construction consultant best placed to advise.”

On the benefits of the merger, Despina Katsikakis, Chairman of DEGW commented: “For over 35 years we have focused on managing change through the effective integration of people, process and place. The coming together with Davis Langdon enables us to measure the value of place in delivering business performance for our clients worldwide."
