The New York City-based engineering and construction consulting firm DeSimone Consulting Engineering announced the acquisition of the British construction consultancy firm Decipher.
Based in Cheshire, England, with offices in London, Manchester, and Dubai, Decipher was founded in 2001 by Paul Gibbons and has been involved in diverse projects including soccer stadiums, waste processing facilities, rail and transportation infrastructure, and ground-up property developments.
The final terms of the deal were not disclosed. With the acquisition, Decipher will operate as “Decipher, a DeSimone Company” and will maintain its presence in Cheshire and Manchester. The London operations will merge with the DeSimone’s British headquarters in the city’s Farringdon district.
“I am thrilled to join DeSimone Consulting Engineering and become a part of an impressive global family,” said Gibbons. “I look forward to combining Decipher’s specialized expertise in construction with DeSimone’s renowned engineering consulting experience. DeSimone’s international reach and substantial operational capabilities will help us deliver unparalleled value to our clients and shape the future of the built environment both domestically and internationally.”
