:: Knight Piesold (UK) joins Scott Wilson  

Scott Wilson, one of the UK's leading international environmental and engineering consultancies, has formally acquired the UK consulting practice of Knight Piesold to form Scott Wilson Mining (SWM). The new entity will operate from Knight Piesold Ltd's existing offices at Ashford in Kent.

Scott Wilson employs some 2,700 professional staff and its principal activities, mainly for governments and international institutions, involve infrastructure development, transport- and environmental-management systems, and specialised and strategic/corporate environmental services. Knight Piesold, established in 1921, operates as an independent consultancy of associated practices with a total staff in excess of 700. The UK practice that is merging with Scott Wilson employs around 170 professionals. It has worked on mining projects in more than 70 countries and provides mainly specialist services to private clients.

The new consultancy will retain the expertise and capabilities provided by Knight Piesold's UK office in the fields of geology, engineering and environmental science. In addition, it will be able to draw on a broad range of skills within the Scott Wilson group, including its research and development team and its specialist laboratory services.
