BIRMINGHAM, England — Engineering and construction firm Burns & McDonnell is expanding its construction presence in the U.K. through the creation of a dedicated Construction Group to serve the U.K. market. This builds upon the existing construction services being provided to National Grid.

The expansion will result in the doubling of the size of the Construction Group in 2023.

Whilst continuing to offer high-quality EPC services, the benefit of the newly formed, dedicated Construction Group in the U.K. sets the stage to focus on successful growth of multiple services across the U.K. Nick Busby is transitioning from his role as U.K. Operations Director to lead the Construction Group as Director of Construction Operations, further empowering the fully integrated inception-to-completion services of Burns & McDonnell.

Nick Busby, Director of Construction Operations at Burns & McDonnell U.K. said:

“I’m thrilled to be leading the U.K. Construction Group, which is the result of the success and growth of Burns & McDonnell in the U.K. Clients can expect business as usual, but with a more formalised structure that enables us to align with the global business.”

“Having a fully integrated engineering and construction team working together with the rest of the U.K. business and sharing the same mission at every stage underpins the successful execution of our EPC projects and the Burns & McDonnell operating model.”

The Construction Group provides project management, safety, quality, estimating, procurement, planning, cost control and construction management support for EPC projects. Clients will continue to benefit from consolidated programmes, increased savings and enhanced project quality and delivery.

Jonathan Chapman, Managing Director at Burns & McDonnell U.K. said:

“Our U.K. business has grown rapidly since launching in 2017, and we need to adapt to accommodate this growth, whilst providing full-service solutions that address our clients’ engineering and construction challenges. The Construction Group’s increased presence marks a milestone in our growth. I'm excited about the new business it will generate and look forward to continuing my support of Nick in his new role as he leads his team toward a dynamic future.”
