Engineering and technical services consultancy RSK has added two more established businesses to its growing portfolio. 

Biocensus, an ecological consultancy and Consents Solutions Ltd, a wayleave business are the first new acquisitions of this financial year by RSK, which has an annual turnover of over £250m. 

The new additions follow a busy 2018/2019 financial year, when RSK acquired 12 businesses and expanded its workforce from about 2000 staff to more than 3000.

Biocensus is an ecological consultancy with a network of more than 700 UK-based ecologists. The company has offices in Bath and Stroud, and works on a wide range of projects with a focus on large infrastructure developments. 

Consents Solutions Ltd has bases in Cambridge and King’s Lynn, and specialises in managing the complete consents process for utility and renewable installation processes.

“Biocensus and Consents Solutions are two fantastic businesses with their clients’ needs at their hearts,” said RSK’s founder and chief executive officer Alan Ryder. “Biocensus’s team of passionate ecologists offers a pragmatic and high-quality ecological resource and helps clients to achieve their development objectives. 

“Consents Solutions is an established and renowned service provider within the energy sector with a proven track record of delivery. Both businesses will extend RSK’s service offering, so I am delighted to welcome them aboard.”
