RSK Group acquires FR Consultants

Southeast law firm Moore Barlow has advised facade risk consultancy business, FR Consultants on its acquisition by RSK Group.

FR Consultants, headquartered in Hampshire, is a leading building fire safety service firm. It specialises in facade surveys and external remediation work across the built environment. With more than 100 years’ experience, the company provides a full suite of building fire safety and compliance services and acts as lead consultants when developing and remediating buildings across the UK. 

The sale will see FR Consultants operate within RSK Group’s portfolio of companies across Europe and the Middle East. The business will retain its brand and workforce as part of the deal.  

RSK Group is a global leader in the delivery of sustainable solutions, enabling organisations around the world to deliver their products and services cost-effectively and with the minimum environmental and social impact. 

Jeremy Over, partner and head of the corporate team at Moore Barlow, said: “FR Consultants has built up an unrivalled reputation in the facade industry, helping to keep Britain’s buildings safe by providing expert consultancy.” 

RSK Group will benefit enormously from the firm’s extensive knowledge and expertise in end-to-end building fire safety solutions, enabling its large portfolio of international clients to further enhance their built environment service offering.

Dorian Lawrence, managing director at FR Consultants will continue to lead the business as part of the RSK Group, said: “We are excited for the future and the opportunities which lie in front of us working with RSK. 

“The shareholders have been searching for a strategic partner for some time to support with its infrastructure and network to assist FR Consultants on our continued growth journey. RSK values reflected our own and they shared our desire to make Britain’s Buildings safer. This made the decision for the team an easy one.”

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jeremy and his team at Moore Barlow, who we very much enjoyed working with and we are delighted with the outcome achieved.
