​This year's prestigious ENR Global Sourcebook rankings are out, and once again, COWI is among the top international consultants in bridges, marine and port facilities, and solid waste.

​The Mersey Gateway Bridge Halton in North West of England and preparation of waste-management plans for the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh are but a few of the projects that COWI has been involved in in the past year and that have contributed to consolidating COWI's position as one of the international market leaders in bridge structures and solid waste in 2015.

On the prestigious Global Sourcebook list, which is published annually by Engineering News-Record, COWI takes second place in bridges, while another COWI specialist service, marine and port facilities, lands COWI a fourth place. Furthermore, COWI comes in second in solid waste. In total, 250 companies are ranked based on international turnover in 2014.

Market leader position is vital in a global market

Lars-Peter Søbye, President, CEO, of COWI, is thrilled about the rankings:

"Once again positioning ourselves as one of the best consultants world-wide in a number of our priority specialist services clearly demonstrates that we've succeeded in our strategic endeavours to maintain a strong presence in our traditional home markets in Scandinavia and North America and to be among the best consultants in the world within our select specialist services," he says and continues:

"Global social developments, and resulting megatrends such as urbanisation and a sustainability focus, are drastically increasing the demand for services of knowledge consultants. But tomorrow's consultancy market only has room for those with the strongest financial and competency capacity. Therefore, it is vital that COWI in the future also takes a leading position within our core sectors and specialist services."  

Among the 250 consulting companies on the ENR list, COWI comes in at no. 33 overall.
