Geosyntec Consultants Becomes Joint Owner of CAT Alliance

Geosyntec Consultants has become a joint owner of CAT Alliance Ltd (CAT).

Founded in 2001, CAT is a joint venture among three leading consultancies — COWI (centered on Scandinavia and Eastern Europe), Geosyntec (centered on the United States, the United Kingdom, and Southeast Asia) and Tauw (centered on Southern and Western Europe). The alliance provides environmental due diligence (EDD) services supporting large industrial, commercial property, and financial clients.

Specializing in corporate asset and transaction support services, CAT has conducted EDD assessments for more than 20,000 properties and has helped clients identify and recognize more than $100 billion in potential environmental liabilities as part of corporate transactions.

CAT provides multinational clients with local, highly trained environmental professionals who understand country-specific regulations in context with international expectations and corporate requirements throughout the world. The joint venture enables partner firms to collaboratively deliver environmental consulting services in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Australasia.

Collectively, the CAT companies and their partners have more than 13,000 staff and offices in more than 50 countries. As a member of the alliance, Geosyntec practitioners provide CAT members with environmental consulting services for projects within the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Malaysia, and partner with CAT firms to provide similar services in other regions of the globe where Geosyntec does not have a presence. Projects will typically consist of the provision of EDD services but also might include site investigations, transactional consulting, regulatory compliance services, and environmental remediation.
