Operational Overview

Buildings, Infrastructure and Rail

BMT is a leading provider of wind engineering and computational modelling for the civil construction industry and provides a range of specialist services in support of infrastructure and rail customers.


There were signs of recovery in the US buildings and infrastructure markets, with the result that our investment in penetrating the US market for wind tunnel testing has begun to pay off. Market conditions for wind tunnel services were also buoyant in China and throughout South East Asia.


Our Hong Kong based built environment and transport consultancy activities had an excellent year serving a buoyant regional market.


Over the year we invested in development of our process and project risk management services building a sound position for supply of these services.


Outlook

If the global economic recovery proves sustainable, we can expect the opportunities created in civil construction and government infrastructure projects to increase.
