Hydrock has said that it is to focus solely on engineering design and consultancy after announcing that its contracting business with form a single division under its existing QDS Remediation brand.
“The significant growth of our UK-wide multi-disciplinary engineering design and consultancy business has shaped our decision to separate our consulting and contracting businesses, removing confusion about our brand and allowing each business to be driven forward independently in their respective sectors,” said Hydrock Group managing director Brian McConnell.
The Hydrock brand is now well-established in delivering consultancy services with blue-chip clients and this is our long-term focus. We’re regularly out-performing the competition to offer clients an outstanding multi-disciplinary design approach that unlocks complex sites, creates value from property assets, and secures planning permission for future development. This decision enables Hydrock to continue to strengthen its brand in this market place.
“The rebranded QDS Contracting business has a strong leadership team in place, a clear focus on core remediation contracting services, and a good client base that includes energy and utility providers, developers, main contractors and public authorities. Backed by the existing credibility of the QDS name in the market place, this is an opportunity to create a unique mark with clients who need specialist remediation and civils contracting skills to deal with legacy sites and create future development platforms.
“Given that the two businesses predominantly function independently of each other, this is a natural point in time to operate them as separate brands and provide each with the opportunity to thrive in their respective markets.”
