Tuesday, November 30th, 2010 - Aquenta Consulting
Aquenta Consulting, formerly known as Currie & Brown (Australia), a provider of independent cost and contract management services in Australia, has today announced its acquisition of BurmanGriffiths, the Brisbane-based provider of estimating and programming services for the civil engineering industry in the Australian and international markets.

This announcement comes towards the end of a busy year for Aquenta Consulting, following its acquisition by AMEC earlier this year, and subsequent re-brand just a few weeks ago.

“This signals the beginning of our aggressive five year growth plan,” said Bob McCalllum, managing director of Aquenta Consulting. “We have ambitious targets and strategies in place to grow our business organically and through acquisition.”

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, strengthens the business’s capability in planning and infrastructure.

“Road infrastructure is a niche area which requires specialist skills and knowledge, and the team at BurmanGriffiths offer both in abundance,” said McCallum. “This joining of forces will provide additional value to our infrastructure clients and extend our market reach.”

All staff from BurmanGriffiths will transfer to Aquenta Consulting. Directors Roger Burman and Dafydd Griffiths will be taking national roles with immediate effect.

“Our companies share similar cultures and visions, so the combining of BurmanGriffiths and Aquenta is a fantastic move forwards for our team and we are excited about the opportunity of being part of a bigger business with common growth aspirations,” said Burman, co-founder and director of BurmanGriffiths.

“We are confident that our skills will contribute to the continued growth and success of Aquenta Consulting.”

BurmanGriffiths has been operating since 2005 and has built a reputation for providing high quality cost and planning consultancy services to the public and private sectors of the civil construction industry.

Co-founder and director, Dafydd Griffiths is delighted to join the team at Aquenta Consulting: “They have a great book of loyal clients, a strong presence in every state, a highly skilled team of people and the backing of a global parent company, so the opportunities for us are unparalleled.”

The combined businesses will continue to deliver an impartial service offering extended estimating capabilities to local, regional and global customers based in Australia. McCallum concludes: “This is an exciting time for our business. The values and services at BurmanGriffiths are closely aligned to our own and we are thrilled to welcome them into the Aquenta team.”
