Growing our Buildings team with acquisition in the Nordics

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff expands its capability in Building Structures with the acquisition of Høyer Finseth in Norway.


On December 16, 2016, Høyer Finseth sold all shares to WSP in Norway, which strengthens our expertise in structural design and technical consulting. The acquisition complements our offering in project management and related advisory services. Moreover, it reinforces our position as one of the leading Nordic players in Buildings Structures, says Knut Jonny Johansen, CEO of WSP in Norway.

Høyer Finseth has approximately 120 employees in Norway, which brings our employee count in the Nordics to 4,400.

“This merger strengthens our business development. We will have additional opportunities in our service areas and our employees will also benefit from those opportunities”, says Knut Reed, who will continue as CEO of Høyer Finseth. Høyer Finseth will eventually change its name to become part of the WSP brand but will continue under its current management.
