The acquisition of the Rhead Group is a significant step for Costain in realising the Company’s strategic goals and underlining further its leading status as an engineering solutions provider. Established in 1985, Rhead is a professional services consultancy focused on programme and commercial management. It provides a range of solutions for the life-cycle of infrastructure, construction and asset management programmes, primarily in the UK, for a number of blue-chip customers including National Grid, Wales & West Utilities and BAE Systems. Costain already has a strong reputation for delivering innovative engineering solutions but the acquisition of Rhead, which was announced in August 2015, will further enhance the Company’s programme management and advisory capability. The acquisition also strengthens Costain’s integrated service offering across the business, allowing each sector to draw on the depth of knowledge and experience that exists within the Group.
