Overseas and public work gives stability to engineering and environmental consultant

Waterman, the engineering and environmental consultant, expects to trade in line with expectations this year, thanks to turnover growth in its international markets.

In an interim management statement, Waterman said that its performance had been boosted by public sector and international work in countries such as Kazakhstan.

But the UK-based firm said that it was “not immune” to the financial crisis, and pledged to “minimise capital expenditure and defer recruitment” until the economy improves.
