History:
“In 1946, philosopher and engineer Ove Arup set up his consulting engineering business in London. In the more than 60 years that have followed, the business has grown into an international consulting firm of unparalleled scope, owned in trust for its employees and using the business principles that Ove Arup first set out – and which he articulated for posterity in 1970 in his forward-looking ‘key speech’.

Right from the start, Arup was known for its close and exceptionally productive collaborations with leading and avant-garde architects. In its first two decades, the firm expanded rapidly, and earned a formidable reputation for devising advanced and economical solutions for buildings – a reputation it still enjoys today.

By 1976, Arup’s reputation had become truly global with the completion of the Sydney Opera House. By this time, the firm had opened offices in Northern Europe, Southern Africa, South East Asia and Australia. Its breadth of expertise was already considerable: this ranged fromoffshore engineering, acoustics, facades, and specialist skills such as impact, blast, risk and seismic engineering, to relatively-niche areas such as designing transportation containers for nuclear waste.

The firm’s portfolio today is broad and wide-ranging. Many of the world’s most iconic sports stadia are Arup projects – such as Beijing’s Water Cube, the Singapore Sport’s Hub and London Aquatics Centre.

Arup’s work goes beyond buildings and infrastructure, however. We collaborated with car manufacturers on the design of the SuperLight car, which uses considerably less energy than the petrol equivalent. Through our Operational Readiness, Activation and Transition (ORAT) service we help clients and other stakeholders plan for the seamless opening and operation of major facilities like airports and hospitals or for major events. Arup has also developed a range of proprietary computer modelling tools which it sells around the world, as well as innovations such as our SoundLab, an aural-realisation tool with which clients can hear subjectively how different design options perform acoustically – before they are actually built.

Arup now has over 91 offices across Europe, North America, Africa, Australasia and South East Asia. We employ more than 11,000 people globally. Our revenue in the year ending March 2014 exceeded £1bn.” (Source)

History:
“The roots of Page, formally Page Southerland Page, Inc., extend back to a two person partnership formed by brothers Louis and Charles H. Page in 1898 in Austin, Texas. Louis Page Jr. and Louis Southerland, who had been classmates at MIT, formed the firm of Page and Southerland in Austin, and during the 1930s, completed landmark work for the Austin State School, Rosewood Housing (one of the first public housing projects in the United States) and the 1937 Austin City Hall, as well as houses for Lyndon B. Johnson and many other legendary Texas figures. Louis Page began what would become a strong link between the firm and academia by teaching at the University of Texas. His brother, George, joined the firm, expanding the name to Page Southerland Page.

In the mid-1900s, the firm became one of the first architectural firms in the nation to integrate in-house engineering design services to respond to the increasingly complex systems in healthcare projects. [Their] engineers are responsible for designing interdependent mechanical, electrical, plumbing, civil and structural systems for a wide range of projects.

Though now a large firm with multiple offices in the U.S. and abroad, Page has retained a rootedness in the communities it serves and an investment in making a long-term difference in the cities where it builds. There is a strong belief in the kind of cumulative placemaking that great firms have made in the past. The current Page practice is aimed at making that kind of difference in the 21st century through a sophisticated integration of civic involvement alongside progressive planning, urban design and architecture.” (source)

History:
Buro Happold was founded by Ted Happold and seven other partners on May 1st, 1976. Based in Bath, the original structural engineering practice specialized in lightweight structural systems. In that same year, the firm won its first major commission. KOCOMMAS – the Kings Office, Council of Ministers and Majlis Al Shura Central Government complex in Riyadh – “involved structural and civil engineering design of the principal buildings, roads and car parks, including some very complex roof and shade structures.”

Since then, Buro Happold has been involved in a variety of high profile projects, including the design of eight iconic umbrellas for Pink Floyd. In 1999, construction of the Buro-Happold-designed Millenium Dome was completed, and the structure was called “[o]ne of the most recognized – and talked about – landmarks in the UK.” Buro Happold “was awarded the prestigious MacRobert Award for its innovative design of the 320m cable net roof – the largest structure of its kind in the world.” In the early 2000s, Buro Happold returned to the Millennium Dome to engineer the now iconic O2 Arena within the existing structure. The O2 Arena is now one of the most popular arenas in the world and is notable for the wide range of events it hosts – from huge concerts to Olympic gymnastics events.

Buro Happold provides a wide range of services across nearly every industry sector. In addition to Integrated Design, the firm offers design and assessment services at both the building and the city scale.  The company has grown immensely and currently has a turnover of more than £50 million.

HISTORY:
In 1958, Alexander Ewing, at the time working for his father’s firm, joined with the in house architect Stanley Cole in order to design the expansion of the Rohm and Haas offices in Philadelphia. Although initially the design ran into trouble due to the site’s inability to accomadate the needs of the company, Ewing and Cole managed to switch the location to a new site on Independence Mall, not far from the Liberty Bell. The resulting design recieved countless praise from the city due to it’s ability to expand while maintaining respect fro the park as well as the surrounding historic buildings.
In 1961 the firm was officially established as Alexander Ewing & Associates, with their headquartes in Philadelphia. Over the years the firm has taken on many partners including Michael P. Erdman, Joseph P. Eubank, Robert Cherry, and Robert Parsky, all the time changing the name of the company to their credit. But in 2003, following the death of partner Paul Brott and the departure of Bob Cherry, the firm took on the new name of EwingCole.

Other Office Locations:

Over 180 offices in 35 countries including: San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas, Texas; Sacramento and San Francisco, California

Services:

Wet Infrastructure and Water Engineering

History:

Heritage stems from three companies that joined to form MWH as it is known today: James M. Montgomery Consulting Engineers (JMM), Watson Hawksley and Harza Engineering Company. These mergers – JMM and Watson Hawksley in 1992 and Montgomery Watson and Harza in 2001 – galvanized the company’s rise to prominence on the world platform where we are now a true leader and a formidable competitor in the wet infrastructure industry. JMM was founded in 1945 in southern California. In the early 1990s, JMM merged with English firm Watson Hawksley, Ltd. of High Wycombe, England, which originated in London in the 1850s. This created a company of global scope with similar corporate cultures that honored individual expertise and encouraged teamwork, innovation and initiative; and a common view of the industry’s future. The name was eventually changed to Montgomery Watson Harza then to MWH Global in 2001.

In 2010, MWH acquired United Kingdom (UK) based Biwater Services Ltd, a leading UK water construction and engineering firm. The acquisition afforded MWH a broader range of skills to address the creation, management and optimization of existing wet infrastructure assets and enhanced our ability to service the full asset life cycle of our clients from feasibility through commissioning and operation. The companies have a shared heritage in the UK market that dates back to 1820. [1]

The evolution of the automobile and the need for ways of transportation made it possible for the company to develop and grow at a rapid pace. The company was chosen to design sections of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, a highway that was used as a model for many others.
Gannet Fleming is recognized for the design of wastewater treatment, solid waste disposal, air pollution control facilities, flood control, and mainly in the transit systems of the U.S. Currently, the company has more than 2,100 employees with offices in the United States, Canada, and Abu Dhabi.

History:
“In 1917, Henning H. Henningson was struck by how many people near and far needed better water works, sewer systems and electric plants. So he founded the Henningson Engineering Company in Omaha, Nebraska, adding value to the local community and inspiring positive change in neighboring states.

By the 1930s, our company was moving rural communities forward by lighting up their streets and helping them recover from drought. Just 20 years later, we added architectural services to our growing roster and expanded our engineering services to include resource management, community planning, transportation and more.

Chuck Durham, a civil engineer, led our early era of growth, as we expanded from 15 employees to more than a thousand. Chuck went on to become a philanthropic giant, instilling the value of giving back in the fabric of our culture.

Our entrepreneurial spirit continued into the 1990s, as our employee-ownership energized the company. By winning more global projects, we opened doors to share our talents with people around the world.

Today, we continue to collaborate with our clients to push boundaries and uncover new possibilities.” (source)
