• About Us

    Hilson Moran is a leading independent multidisciplinary consultancy for the built environment. We plan, design and manage real estate assets on a full range of projects from our network of offices in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

  • Our History

    We specialise in building design and operation, environmental and sustainability consulting and masterplanning, using the latest design techniques and tools.

    Our work is founded on two principal beliefs: that we deliver high quality, reliable solutions which exceed our clients’ requirements and enhance their asset’s value; and that we do so with a firm emphasis on sustainability in design and in use.

    In 1977 Jim Hilson and Peter Moran established Hilson Moran, aiming to provide a higher quality of consultancy service than they had experienced while pursuing their early careers within major contracting organisations. 1983 saw Chris Plummer join the board. By 1990 we had three offices in the UK, and in 1998 we established our facilities management group.

    Two years later, we set up our environmental modelling group to use cutting edge software modelling techniques in building design. In 2002 we formed the energy and sustainability team.In 2007, these two teams came together, and the resultant sustainability group continually researches and tracks developments in the field of carbon emissions and energy consumption, to make sure we offer our clients expert advice based on the most up-to-date data.

    We were one of the first firms in our field to be Quality Assured, back in 1992, and we remain ISO 9001:2008 certified. In 2001 we were also among the first in our sector to attain Investors in People accreditation. Our dedication to quality and training led us to launch the Hilson Moran Academy in 2009, coordinating all training and development and sharing best practice across the group.

    In recent years, we’ve widened our scope of services to deliver comprehensive design solutions. A light & visual environments team was established in 2005, acoustics in 2007 and structural engineering and fire engineering groups were introduced at the start of 2008.

    In 2002, we became part of Altran, one of the largest engineering consultancy groups worldwide which aided our expansion overseas: we opened our UAE office in 2006.

    At the end of 2011, our management team reacquired Hilson Moran from Altran. We are now an independent, international sustainable engineering firm with more than 200 staff, a proud history and a luminescent future ahead.
