Consulting M & A has supported CS2, one of the UK’s most reputable construction consultancies, through the sale process to RSK, the UK’s leading integrated environmental, engineering and technical services provider.
Operating from seven UK offices, CS2 is one of the UK’s most reputable construction consultancies, offering a fully integrated service covering building surveying, cost consultancy, project management, construction consultancy, dilapidations, energy and sustainability and one of the most prolific acquirers in the sector.
Andrew Mather, CS2’s Managing Director, said “CS2 is delighted to be on board and to be part of RSK’s strategic investment programme. RSK’s technical excellence across a huge range of services and sectors will be of significant interest and benefit to our clients. We are culturally and philosophically aligned and we shall continue to provide fantastic client service, delivered by technical experts.”
The acquisition will see CS2 continuing to deliver innovative and customer-focused surveying and consultancy services to its clients. CS2’s existing management team, headed by Managing Director Andrew Mather, will continue to lead the business, which will become part of RSK’s Geosciences and Engineering division. The entire workforce and brand will be retained as RSK and CS2 plan to grow the business in the years to come.
RSK Chief Executive Officer and founder Alan Ryder said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome CS2 into the group as they further our aim of providing end-to-end solutions for our clients. A company with a spirit of passion, partnership and performance is absolutely one that RSK can get behind. Our shared ethos will lead to fantastic opportunities that we look forward to exploring.”
