HaskoningDHV CR was established as a Limited company in the Czech Republic in 1992. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal HaskoningDHV Holding B.V. headquartered in Amersfoort, The Netherlands. The firms´s focus is multidisciplinary consulting engineering, city/regional-planning and management consulting with the aim of being a leader in that field in the Czech Republic. Established as an independent company from the beginning, the Czech team was able to provide its clients with a combination of traditional engineering expertise from Czech experts, with the know-how from one of Europe’s leading consulting and engineering groups. This expertise position significantly and very quickly differentiated HaskoningDHV CZ from its competitors, many of whom were satisfied with taking over former governmental design & engineering institutions, which was not conducive to providing innovative solutions. From small beginnings of just four employees, the company has grown to its present staff compliment of 40 professional, technical and support staff. Since 1996 the company has been exclusively managed by Czech nationals.
