Purchase of firm for undisclosed sum aims to boost engineer's sustainability credentials

Mott MacDonald has bought building services engineer Fulcrum Consulting for an undisclosed sum.

The purchase of London-based Fulcrum, which is a founding member of the UK Green Buildings Council, aims to boost the engineer’s sustainability capability.

Fulcrum’s projects include the new Darwin Centre at the Natural History Museum and the Brighton Library, which was widely recognised as a pioneering low-energy scheme.

Mike Barker, Mott MacDonald Group’s global buildings practice director, said: “Fulcrum has a tremendous reputation in the building services and sustainability sectors and brings additional skills in energy and sustainability master planning for buildings.

Richard Shennan, managing director of Fulcrum, added: “Having direct access to the Group’s global network and resources will enable us to offer our customers a more comprehensive service, drawing on the complementary skills of our colleagues in Mott MacDonald – many of whom we’ve already worked with on various projects.
