White Young Green is pleased to announce the acquisition earlier this week of Denis Rooney Associates (DRA) with offices in Belfast and Dublin.
DRA is a high profile privately owned management services business offering project management, cost management, building surveying and planning supervisory services throughout Ireland. This £2.4m turnover business employing over 40 staff brings management services to the range of skills now offered to clients in Ireland and is therefore entirely complementary to the existing WYG Ireland engineering and environmental business units.
Denis Rooney himself will take up the position of Chief Executive of WYG Ireland.
DRA will bring the following benefits to WYG:
- A broadening of the skills base in the context of total project delivery in Ireland.
- The opportunity to cross-sell complementary skills into a broader client base.
- Improved sector penetration in education, housing and healthcare.
- High profile senior management representation within influential business and government organisations.
