    27 June 2013

    buro happold 1Recently international engineering consultancy Buro Happold moved to an office of their own in Jian Wai, Beijing, having established a team and an office in Beijing in July 2011 to deliver the structural, building services and façade engineering for the Jin Bao Street redevelopment project.

    Jian Wai is a vibrant business district favoured by architects and many other professionals.

    “After eighteen months of operating from a registered entity in China it is clear that the ability to contract and collect money locally is important to the consultancy’s clients, as well as being able to work with a mix of international and Chinese staff,” stated Matthew Smith, office director, Buro Happold.

    More than 80 clients joined with the consultancy to mark this new milestone. Guests included Ian Lockhart of the UKTI British Embassy in Beijing and Buro Happold managing directors, for Asia, Steve Brown, and the Middle East, Roger Nickells.

    Smith added, “I was delighted that the client for the Nanjing Youth Olympics project (Architect Zaha Hadid) could attend the festivities as well as representatives of several design institutes that our team are working closely with. Architectural collaborators from offices around the world were also present and I would like to thank them for their support in enabling Buro Happold to win work on Chinese projects. China is an exciting, growing and important part of Buro Happold’s global business.”
