It follows the recent acquisition of civil engineering and bulk earthworks contractor, RJT Excavations, and after that water, construction and engineering specialist, ABM, and then mechanical engineering business Homer Burgess    

Since January, Cheshire-based RSK is understood to have executed in the region of 29 mergers and acquisitions (M&A) with companies from a range of different sectors.   

London-headquartered DWD operates in various sectors, too, including commercial-industrial, residential, retail, education, infrastructure, energy, leisure, minerals and waste. 

The business, which has been running for more than 35 years, specialises in planning and surveying, with the property team’s expertise deployed to lease advisory services, business rates, acquisition, disposal and valuation across property and infrastructure sectors.

RSK Group CEO Alan Ryder said: “DWD is a company with a reputation for expertly advising and supporting a wide range of multi-sector clients. Its specialist property and planning skills and experience will certainly add great value to RSK businesses.  

“DWD also has an impressive record of securing consents for a range of energy infrastructure projects, including those involving solar, hydrogen and biomass energy; energy recovery; wind farms; battery energy storage systems; carbon capture, transport and storage clusters; and electric car charging.  

“This and other sectors in which the company works offer great advantages to group interests, and we look forward to working together on some exciting projects aligned with the RSK commitment to global sustainability.” 

RSK now comprises more than 200 companies, employing 14,000 people.
