History

Through the 20th century, Freeman Fox & Partners built an international reputation in the field of bridges and highways.

Founded by Sir Ralph Freeman, and joined by Sir Gilbert Roberts, the firm was responsible for the design of projects such as:

  • Victoria Falls Bridge (1905)
  • Sydney Harbour Bridge (1932)
  • Forth Road Bridge (1964)
  • Severn Bridge (1966)
  • Bosporus Bridge (1974)
  • Humber Bridge (1981)
  • Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge (1988).
  • Parkes radio telescope (1961).

More recent projects include:

  • Melbourne City Link (Australia)
  • Emirates Twin Towers (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)
  • Cairo Wastewater Project (Egypt)

Over the same period John Taylor & Sons built its reputation in water and wastewater engineering with projects such as the Shanghai water supply project and major water and sewerage projects in Leningrad (now St Petersburg) and Tehran.

The two firms merged in 1987 to form Acer Consultants. Over the next few years, several smaller specialist firms were incorporated to form a worldwide infrastructure consultancy.

The company was acquired by Welsh Water in 1993 and renamed Hyder Consulting in 1996.

When Hyder was bought by Western Power Distribution, the senior management of Hyder Consulting instigated a management buy-out, completed in January 2001.

The company has been listed on the London stock exchange since October 2002.
