Leading environmental teams join forces as SKM Enviros

SKM Enviros is the new name for the combined expertise and capabilities of the water and environment, health and safety teams in Europe of Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) – a global engineering, sciences and project delivery firm – and Enviros Consulting – an environmental, sustainability and health and safety consultancy.

The launch of the new SKM Enviros business follows the acquisition of Enviros by SKM from Carillion plc in October 2009.

In a resource-efficient, low carbon economy, SKM Enviros’ aim is to lead debate, influence policy and shape development to achieve outstanding client success in a more sustainable way.

SKM Enviros consultants will work with other Sinclair Knight Merz colleagues worldwide to bring the best that the 6,500 strong multi-disciplinary consultancy – including 1,600 water and environment professionals - has to offer its clients.

Peter Young SKM Enviros’ Strategy Manager said “The response from clients and staff to SKM’s acquisition of Enviros has been everything we hoped for and the coming together of the two teams as one combined force is a natural next step. We are really excited about offering an improved portfolio of services to our clients and sharing with them the capabilities of the global business.”

Peter MacKellar, who will lead SKM Enviros, added “We knew the addition of Enviros to the group would give us a more comprehensive set of solutions to the sustainability challenges our clients now face. SKM Enviros will deliver the best services available to our clients and draw on the skills of our global network.”
