November 15, 2018

LAKE JACKSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2018--GHD, one of the world’s leading engineering, environmental, and construction services companies, celebrated the launch of their new 5,000-square-foot office space in Lake Jackson, Texas with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception on November 14, 2018. Located in the heart of America’s petrochemical industry, the office serves the petrochemical sector, providing environmental, water/wastewater design, facility engineering, and regulatory compliance support.

The ribbon cutting ceremony marked the location as GHD’s new global environmental and engineering resource in the United States. The guest list included local dignitaries such as Lake Jackson Mayor Bob Sipple, members of the Lake Jackson Chamber of Commerce, and several local news organizations. GHD’s North American leaders, Iver Skavdal, General Manager – USA, and Steve Quigley, General Manager – Canada, attended to greet local dignitaries, employees, and other guests to their new office space.

“Our GHD employees are extremely proud of our new Texas office, a project that positively reflects the talent, innovation, and creativity of our team members,” said Iver Skavdal, “Of all of the places to grow our business, we chose Lake Jackson because of what the location has to offer our existing and future clients. We are proud to bring a global business such as GHD into the community as a local resource and we hope that our presence will make a positive impact in the community,” concluded Skavdal.

The GHD employees who brought this office to reality live in Brazoria County having well over 100-years of combined experiences serving petrochemical clients in this area. GHD’s journey across the globe from Australia to the Brazosport community brings global knowledge, lessons learned, and best practices that they share and apply to each unique project. By choosing to build a presence in Lake Jackson, GHD is successfully aligning with their strategic long-term business objectives of steady growth while deepening and strengthening connections to those clients and the communities in which they live.

The new Lake Jackson office complements the existing Houston, Baton Rouge and Corpus Christi offices as they collectively provide mutual support in serving the petrochemical industry. In early 2019, GHD’s Houston office will relocate to a more modern facility in Houston’s Energy Corridor.

With more than 10,000 people around the globe, GHD is one of the world’s leading professional services companies operating in the markets of water, energy and resources, environment, property and buildings, and transportation. Committed to creating lasting community benefit, GHD’s connected global network includes 4000 employees in North America delivering engineering, environmental, advisory, digital, and construction services to public and private sector clients. www.ghd.com
