To our clients and colleagues,

I am very excited to announce that AA Projects has secured an initial minority investment with leading European construction consultancy business Drees & Sommer, propelling us forwards as we continue our growth and expansion.

Drees and Sommer have become a minority shareholder in AA Projects with the intention of purchasing the remaining share capital in December 2023.

Before I share more about Drees & Sommer, lets rewind to explain how everything has evolved to this stage.

AA Projects underwent a Management Buy Out in 2018 which was led by a team of 10 Directors. Since then, we have rapidly expanded our successful business and we now service clients not only locally but also across Europe and the US.

Our work internationally highlighted the demand in the marketplace for experienced property and construction consultants who are passionate about enhancing people’s lives through the work we do in the built environment. An ever-growing need we have also seen is the requirement to work towards zero-carbon property and built asset solutions.

It is for this reason that we have decided to join forces with Drees and Sommer, who are at the forefront of European digitisation, sustainability and are paving the way towards a circular economy.

The tie-up enables us to integrate and expand our service lines and sector expertise through our synergies and joint capabilities, strengthening our multi-disciplinary sustainability led approach.

Over the next 21 months, you will see our logo change as we work closely with Drees and Sommer to combine our knowledge and continue to deliver excellence to our clients. This graduated approach will enable the successful and smooth transition into joining Drees & Sommer UK at the beginning of 2024.

I hope you are as excited as we are about the opportunities ahead. We’ve said this before, but our vision at AA Projects is to shape a better future that enables people and communities to thrive. Together with Drees & Sommer we look forward to continuing that journey together.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards,

Kenneth Wood
Managing Director
