Waterman Celebrates 60 Years of Innovation

In 2012 we are celebrating 60 years of innovation as a leading international consultancy.

Founded in 1952 and listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1988, Waterman has grown into a leading international consultancy with offices throughout the UK, Europe, CIS, Middle East, Australia, China and India

As a successful multi-disciplinary organisation, Waterman has matured over the last 60 years, combining the principles of innovative and intelligent design with advanced modelling technology to resolve increasingly complex planning and design issues that the industry faces today. Our services have diversified over decades of organic growth and acquisition and at present we offer over 150 specialist services across all main market sectors.

The company’s expertise is diverse and built upon 60 years of experience in engineering excellence, covering an award winning portfolio of projects of varying sizes and complexity.

The schemes and the working practices our engineers and consultants have helped to pioneer, have taken Waterman from very small beginnings on London’s fringes to an internationally established multi-disciplinary group.

harold_waterman_intIn 1952 Waterman was founded by Harold Waterman as a structural consultancy in London. HL Waterman and Partners gradually grew the business throughout the commercial property development boom of the 1950s and 60s.

Entered into partnership with many of the UK’s local authorities and worked with them to re-build towns and cities badly scarred by the effects of wartime bombing.

Strong and steady growth picked up real speed by the 70s and 80s that kept pace with the changes in British building development.
