McBains Cooper is a very happy construction consultancy this week. After all, we’ve just been handed the biggest piece of flattery I think we’ve ever had

Davis Langdon, undoubtedly one of the biggest and historically most successful mono-discipline consultancies, has decided to change – well, about-turn – its business strategy by evolving into a multidisciplinary organisation with the acquisition of architect DEGW. They have decided that imitating the McBains Cooper way is the way forward.

The result of the news of this merger is a McBains Cooper office full of grins from some extremely flattered people.
