The new Egis UK headquarters is an 11,500 sq ft campus-style complex of three buildings up to five storeys in London Waterloo housing 350 employees working across its business lines from architecture to rail and energy.
The buildings have been designed and developed to integrate within the surrounding Valentine Place conservation area.
The move follows recent expansion by Egis in the UK. In 2021, it acquired railways consultant CPMS and nuclear waste specialist Galson Sciences. In 2022 it added architects practice Weston Williamson & Partners. At the end of 2022, Egis was appointed lead designer for Sizewell C.
Egis UK managing director Claire Davies said: “I’m delighted to unveil our new London campus as the perfect home for our growing team in the UK. This expansion is a testament to Egis’s commitment to the UK market and the success of our operations here to date. We can’t wait to welcome more staff to our new home as we continue to invest in the UK.”

Recent reports from the UK have confirmed that French engineering giant, Réseau Ferré de France (RFF) has begun development on a new headquarters in London.
The new facility is being built with the aim of strengthening RFF’s presence in the UK and providing a base for the growth of the business within the UK market and abroad.
Once complete, the new headquarters will provide a workplace for over 400 employees and serve as the focus for RFF’s new London-based operations.
RFF have said they are excited to develop this new facility, and they are pleased that London has agreed to grant them a 30 year lease on the building, as well as an option to extend at the end of the lease period.
The new headquarters are being built in line with RFF’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy, and will feature several energy efficient technologies such as solar panels, LED lighting, and water efficient fixtures.
The development is also set to bring business opportunities for other local companies in the surrounding area who may be able to benefit from the increased presence of major players such as RFF.
RFF are yet to confirm the exact date when construction will begin on the new headquarters, though reports suggest it is likely to be in the early part of 2020.
The new development is likely to bring a significant boost to the UK economy, and pave the way for yet more growth for RFF in the country. As international engineering leaders and pioneers in the renewable energy sector, RFF are sure to be a welcome addition to the UK market.
