2016 – BDP and Nippon Koei join Forces


BDP combined forces with Japan’s leading engineering practice Nippon Koei in 2016, marking an exciting new era in our evolution. Although separated geographically, our two firms share a common philosophy which places an emphasis on design integration and positive community impact. Our alliance has created a group that offers complementary strengths in terms of our extensive design and technical skills, professional capabilities and sector expertise.

Originally established in 1946 as Japan’s first independent engineering consultancy, Nippon Koei’s primary strength is in civil engineering, although it offers a range of services to both Japanese and international clients. A significant proportion of Nippon Koei’s work is associated with infrastructure development funded by the Japanese government and the World Bank in developing economies across Asia, South America and Africa.

By joining forces on a global basis, we are able to draw on our inter-disciplinary expertise to provide our clients with world class design solutions which enhance the communities they serve.
