AN award winning Colchester engineering consultancy firm has undergone a rebrand.

ByrneLooby is entering a new era in its 25 year history by taking on the name of its parent company, Ayesa.

One of the UK’s top ten geotechnical consultants, Ayesa acquired ByrneLooby in February 2022, beginning an 18 month integration period.

As of October 19, ByrneLooby has become Ayesa, including their websites, brochures, projects, and presentations adopting the Ayesa brand.

John Byrne, co-founder of ByrneLooby, heads UK and Ireland territories and has seen the company develop into a respected engineering and geotechnical leader over the past three decades.

He said: “From the beginning, we could see that both companies are very similar in goals, culture and philosophy, with teams striving to deliver better quality and a more sustainable and resilient built environment. 

“Since the acquisition, we’ve continued to grow our revenues, staff and capabilities, making significant inroads into the vibrant UK and Ireland infrastructure sectors.

"I’m excited about the future as we can do much more with greater agility, maintaining our core offering of highly technical and multidisciplinary services but now on a global scale.”
