About Royal HaskoningDHV
Royal HaskoningDHV was founded in 1922 Johannesburg, South Africa and was formerly known as SSI Engineers and Environmental Consultants. It was one of the very first independent consulting engineering companies in Southern Africa. It was registered as Stewart Scott (Pty) Ltd and trading as Stewart Scott International (SSI), taking the name from its founding fathers who are George Stewart and Frederick Scott. George Stewart was a specialist in water cycle and municipal services projects while Frederick Scott was a transport and structural designer.
In September 2006, the DHV Group became the firm’s major shareholder. After the DHV and Royal Haskoning merger in 2012, the company changed the name to Royal HaskoningDHV to indicate unified branding of the two groups.
Currently, Royal HaskoningDHV has 6,000 staffs from permanent offices in more than 30 countries who provide services and perform professional works on projects in 150 countries worldwide.
