Turner & Townsend takes over asset consultant AMCL

Turner & Townsend has merged with asset management consultancy AMCL to bolster the advisory service provided to the infrastructure sector.

Founded in 1997 and headquartered in the UK, AMCL work across four continents and provide performance diagnostics and capability analysis for clients including Network Rail, Scottish & Southern Electric and Transport for London and Crossrail.

Working in tandem with Turner & Townsend’s capital programme delivery experts, AMCL’s global team of 45 specialist consultants will now bolster the combined company’s offering in advisory, programme management, project management and cost and commercial management services.

The two companies previously worked together in a joint venture to produce a strategic asset management plan for the USA’s largest public power generator, the New York Power Authority.

Vincent Clancy, chairman and chief executive of Turner & Townsend, said: “The next decade will see the largest investment in infrastructure spending ever witnessed. By investing in AMCL, Turner & Townsend has gained world-class skills that will allow us to offer a truly end-to-end service to our infrastructure clients.

“The need to manage assets effectively and efficiently with resources and funds under ever increasing pressure means asset management capability will become a growing priority for every infrastructure owner.

“The combining of AMCL’s skills with our own leaves us uniquely placed to deliver tangible improvements to the way our clients develop new, and operate existing, assets.”

Martin Pilling, operations director of AMCL, added: “Joining forces with Turner & Townsend is a huge opportunity that will see us increase the value we offer our clients through extended implementation and delivery capability.

“We’re hugely looking forward to increasing our global reach, and building on our combined strengths to advise clients from planning through to delivery and operation.”

Richard Edwards, technical director of AMCL added: “The combination of Turner & Townsend’s programme delivery expertise with AMCL’s asset management pedigree is a potent one, and creates an offering that meets an increasing need in the industry.

“Together we are able to offer end-to-end advisory service that will prove compelling to both the owners of – and investors in – infrastructure assets.”
