Firm sees buy as way into disabled access consultancy

Davis Langdon has bought Australian firm Blythe-Sanderson Group for an undisclosed sum as a route into the disabled access consultancy market.

Blythe-Sanderson Group specialises in advising clients on meeting standards for access for people with disabilities and services at the company, which was founded 16 years ago, include building reviews and occupational therapy.

Davis Langdon’s managing director in Australia, Mark Beattie, said: “The provision of access consulting will be enabled across Davis Langdon’s Australian and New Zealand network of offices.

“This will be supported by our compatible services of building surveying, project management, town planning and cost management.”
