Jensen Hughes, a safety, security and risk-based engineering and consulting firm has today announced the acquisition of Jeremy Gardner Associates Ltd. (JGA), a fire safety consulting firm.
Following the recent launch of its London office in September 2017, the acquisition will help strengthen Jensen Hughes’ presence within the UK, Ireland and the European market.
Headquartered in London, JGA has seven offices across the UK and Ireland, and will join the more than 70 Jensen Hughes locations globally to better serve clients and provide a more comprehensive approach to their fire and life safety needs.
JGA was founded in 1993 by Jeremy Gardner with a sole focus on fire safety. Since then, the company has expanded to seven offices, a staff of 70, with 55 fire protection engineers, and more than 6,000 completed projects. These projects include some of the most complex construction projects in the UK, Ireland and continental Europe, such as the Microsoft campus in Dublin, St James in Edinburgh, and Wembley Park in London.
CEO of Jensen Hughes, Paul Orzeske, said: “The JGA team brings exceptional technical expertise and client focus, which truly helps Jensen Hughes build global recognition as a world-class company.
“We are excited to join forces with JGA. They share a similar culture and mindset around safety, security and risk mitigation for their clients, and we look forward to bringing additional fire and life safety-related capabilities to the UK and Ireland in the coming years.”
