New opportunities for GHD
Now that our merger with CRA is complete, GHD is making significant progress around the globe. We are combining systems and processes and are well on our way to building on the best practices of both organisations to achieve a connected global network of 8500+ professionals.
"To date the merger has presented numerous opportunities to deliver additional value for clients," explains Tony Ying, GHD's General Manager Integration. "With the growth in our capabilities, we have expanded the range of services to include industrial hygiene, forensic engineering, data management, emergency response and materials testing to name a few.
"This expansion is resonating well with our clients and to date we have won numerous joint projects. For example, in the USA, we have completed a plant-wide asbestos survey for BASF Chemical Corporation in Pasadena, Texas. In Canada, we have won a major tunnelling project with the Region of Peel for the installation of a new watermain in Mississauga, Ontario.
"In New Zealand, we have brought CRA's emergency response service, known as the Fast Incident Response Services team to Watercare, a strategic GHD client providing water and wastewater services in Auckland. In Western Australia, CRA is supporting GHD in providing design consulting services for the construction of a permanent mercury management facility to decontaminate equipment at the Gorgon Gas Treatment Plant on Barrow Island."
On July 1 2015, CRA changed its name to GHD and we are now operating as one company.
