The deal, cementing a two-year working relationship between the businesses, will enhance the group’s technical resources and service offering while extending its reach across the UK.  

Crestwood, a multi-sector, multidisciplinary environmental consultancy, founded in 1994, has offices in Wolverhampton and a regional presence in London. 

While Mabbett, a planning, design, and engineering consultancy, is located at Anglesey, Belfast, Cardiff, Carlisle, Dublin, Dundee, Edinburgh, Forres, Glasgow, Inverness, Leicester, Manchester, and Winchester. 

“There are great synergies between the technical teams in the landscape architecture, planning and cultural heritage space but also some complementary skillsets and services in their environmental and ecological teams that will extend our geographical reach in England,” said Mabbett managing director, Derek J. McNab. 

Strategic growth  

Crestwood marks Mabbett’s fourth strategic investment since transitioning into Inverness-headquartered investment company, GEG Capital Limited, having previously acquired G H Johnston Building Consultants, and Nevis Environmental and GEP Environmental consultants.  

The deal also comes on the back of another year of double-digit growth for Mabbett, in which time the team has grown to 150 staff across the UK. 

McNab added: “Having enjoyed a successful working relationship with the Crestwood Environmental team as contractor/sub-contractor and vice versa, we have long admired their people, values and capabilities – they are a talented and fun team to work with.”
