Jacobs acquires Aquenta Consulting
Jacobs Engineering has acquired Aquenta Consulting, formerly Currie & Brown, a leading provider of integrated project services to public and private sector clients in Australia.
Aquenta helps owners, operators and investors in infrastructure and property assets achieve their objectives at a strategic, portfolio, program and project level.
The 220-person business has been acquired from Amec Foster Wheeler, which has owned Aquenta since 2010.
For more than 60 years, Aquenta has been providing services on multi-billion dollar projects spanning multiple market segments. Projects have been carried out across Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and Europe. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
Aquenta brings leading edge skills in cost management, project planning and controls, project and risk management, contract, commercial and dispute services, along with asset and facilities management.
This comprehensive suite of services significantly complements the existing capability which Jacobs provides its clients.
The joint Jacobs and Aquenta offering will underpin further growth in integrated project services in Australia as well as in New Zealand and the Middle East, supporting Jacobs projects on both client-side roles and the construction contractor community.
