US engineer moves international HQ from Paris to London
US consulting engineer Louis Berger has officially opened its new international headquarters in Richmond upon Thames.
The move is part of Louis Berger's three-year international expansion strategy. Its international operations headquarters were previously in Paris. The company's global headquarters remain in Morristown, New Jersey, USA.
"London is an international centre for engineering and business,” said Thomas Topolski, Louis Berger's international president. “Relocating Louis Berger's international headquarters to the UK is a strategic decision that supports both our growth in the UK market and our international growth as the UK is home to many of our international lending, contracting and EPC partners, as well as the home country for a large pool of Louis Berger talent who play business and project leadership roles around the globe."
The initial plan is to strengthen established relationships with private sector partners based in the UK and then to look at new opportunities in rail, highway, power and water markets.
As reported last week, James Rousell has joined Louis Berger from Jacobs as UK managing director.
Most of Louis Berger's international corporate management will be based in the UK. Most employees will remain based at project sites around the globe, however.
Louis Berger's new international headquarters are at Avalon House, 72 Lower Mortlake Road, Richmond.
