Royal HaskoningDHV has been ranked 18th of the global top 100 engineering firms by New Civil Engineer (NCE) as they unveiled the results of the inaugural NCE100.

Last night’s ceremony marked the culmination of the initiative which was launched in December 2015. The NCE100 aims to showcase excellence in civil engineering practice by ranking the top 100 firms against the NCE’s five core pillars – Future Engineer, Future Technology, Technical Excellence, Engineering Equality and World View. These pillars closely match sentiments featured in the Construction 2025 Industrial Strategy for Construction. 

Firms were given the opportunity to showcase their work by the completion of a far-reaching questionnaire covering all aspects of the business and how they perform under the core pillars. Responses were reviewed by a 30-strong judging panel and used to rank firms and create shortlists for 15 accompanying awards.

Craig Huntbatch, UK Resident Director, said: “To be ranked in the top 20 of engineering firms globally is an outstanding achievement and a fair reflection of the innovation, expertise and quality within our work. As an independent company we have streamlined our structure to enhance our decision making power, making our operations more efficient and thus more successful in the marketplace.  This announcement is testament to the hard work of our staff.”

Royal HaskoningDHV was also shortlisted for the International Impact Award for work on a major coastal embankment improvement project in Bangladesh. As part of a $2 billion project, Royal HaskoningDHV is providing the engineering design and project management for the first phase of construction, which will upgrade more than 600km of embankments to protect some 42 million coastal residents and their communities.
