RSK acquires Stephenson Halliday

Client: RSK
Services provided: Acquisition due diligence

RSK Group Limited completed a further acquisition at the end of May, being Cumbrian based Stephenson Halliday Limited (SHL).

SHL are planning and landscape consultants, with their services being spread across infrastructure, minerals, waste, and rural planning sectors. SHL places significant focus on providing high quality Environmental Impact Assessments and advising on wind farm and solar farm developments. The business brings with it a team of highly skilled and experienced senior planning staff.

This acquisition is fundamental in increasing RSK’s access to the renewables sector for planning and many other services as they look to embed SHL into their current environmental business and create the UK’s most complete landscape consultancy.

Nicola Merritt of Cortus Advisory Group said, “we are seeing increased activity in the Renewables sector and were pleased to be able to work with a business that has such a strong reputation in this industry, and also in the Cumbrian region”.
