Travis Baker’s longstanding clients include Redrow, Bloor Homes, Barratt Homes, Persimmon, Taylor Wimpey, Miller Homes, Bellway and Keepmoat Homes.

RSK Group CEO Alan Ryder said: “High-quality skills are sought after in the civil, structural, and geo-environmental sectors, and the addition of Travis Baker will complement our services in these sectors alongside architecture, topography, noise and transport planning.

“There is also a clear synergy in the water sector alongside our many businesses operating in this space. This cross-business support is something RSK is keen to explore further with Travis Baker.”

The group’s annual turnover at the end of this year is expected to top £800m, more than double the previous year.
