International engineering consultancy ByrneLooby has rebranded to its parent company, Ayesa.
The move follows an 18-month integration period following Ayesa’s acquisition of the structural and civil engineering firm in February 2022.
Furthermore, the integration process combined the people and skillsets to create a “compelling” and “global leading” provider of technology and engineering consultancy services.
In the UK, Ayesa is said to be in the top 10 geotechnical consultants, and globally, it is ranked 44 out of 225 international engineering design firms, both surveyed by revenue in 2022.
John Byrne, Ayesa’s UK and Ireland Manager, who co-founded ByrneLooby, said: “From the beginning, we could see that both companies are very similar in goals, culture and philosophy, with teams striving to deliver better quality and a more sustainable and resilient built environment.
“Since the acquisition, we’ve continued to grow our revenues, staff and capabilities, making significant inroads into the vibrant UK and Ireland infrastructure sectors. I’m excited about the future as we can do much more with greater agility, maintaining our core offering of highly technical and multidisciplinary services but now on a global scale.”
ByrneLooby, which has offices in the UK, Ireland, and the Middle East, may be changing its name, but the company says it will continue to build on the reputation for technical excellence earned under that guise.
Over its 25-year history, it has helped deliver significant infrastructure projects such as The Shard, 22 Bishopsgate, Lowestoft Port, Blanchardstown Regional Drainage Scheme, Saggart Reservoir, HS2 and landmark city developments in Dublin and London.
It has also been pivotal in developing major wind farms in Ireland and the UK, and finally, Giga projects in the Middle East, including Amaala and Red Sea Global.
As one united brand, it will enable the company to share expertise and teams to achieve better outcomes and services for clients.
