The new partnership marks Singapore-based Surbana Jurong’s first investment in a North American consulting and design practice.
October 18th, 2018
Toronto-headquartered firm B+H and Singapore’s Surbana Jurong have announced a new partnership that will create new opportunities for the firms to deliver end-to-end solutions in a greater breadth of locations.
B+H Principals will continue to be owners and the firm will be managed as an independent entity by its Managing Principals. Surbana Jurong already operates with a specialist groups system, with the flexibility for such groups to work separately or collaboratively as needed.
The two firms share common service, sector and geographic synergies, but the new alliance will open up some new markets for each. B+H will open up the North American market, where Surbana Jurong does not currently have a strong market presence. In Asia, B+H will continue to operate independently, but will also collaborate with Surbana Jurong and member companies, and leverage Surbana Jurong’s presence in Malaysia, Myanmar, The Philippines, India, Indonesia and Australia, as well as Africa.
“Both firms are committed to delivering resilient and healthy environments,” says Wong Heang Fine, Group CEO of Surbana Jurong. “Together, we will aim to provide integrated, end-to-end and best-in-class solutions, from real estate and development strategies, to design and consulting services and through to facilities management.”
Offers Bill Nankivell, CEO, B+H, “This partnership accelerates B+H’s continued growth strategy and positions us to compete with some of the most powerful firms in the world.”
He continues: “Continued investments, consolidation and mergers in our industry are providing platforms for firms to grow, diversify, compete, and attract and retain the best talent. The B+H and Surbana Jurong partnership will allow us to deliver bold and inspiring projects in new geographies and sectors, providing extraordinary opportunities for our people.”
