Building consultancy Ridge recently acquired London-based Concert, a data center-focused consulting company, to boost its business in that sector. Both companies finalized this acquisition on November 3, but the terms of the transaction were not disclosed.  Concert will operate under its current brand initially, with a phased integration throughout 2024.

Adrian O’Hickey, senior partner at Ridge, said, “This acquisition is the next stage in our vision of sustainably growing Ridge over the long term. Concert is well established in two of our target growth sectors: Data Centers and Commercial, and their talented team brings a depth and range of additional knowledge, skills, and relationships. This acquisition will also strengthen our offering in the competitive London market."

Rennie Dalrymple, managing director at Concert, added, “It is a very exciting time in the data center sector. Joining Ridge will enable us to strengthen and broaden our services, supporting clients with their significant investment plans for delivering complex developments in the UK and Europe. We look forward to being part of Ridge and supporting the business expansion in London by combining our highly experienced teams to deliver market-leading consultancy advice.”
