The agency will position Atkins as a thought leader in nuclear, defence, energy, mass transit, utilities, telecoms, design and engineering sectors.
The six-figure account was won after a competitive pitch and will be headed up by UK MD Geoff Beattie. Three-year incumbent Carmargue did not repitch for the account. Camargue continues to work on a retained basis for the Highways and Transportation division, as well as on group communications.
Atkins' divisional comms director Trudy Warrender said Cohn & Wolfe was awarded the work because they ‘showed an ability to think laterally about how to position us as an industry leader’.
Atkins plans, designs and enables the delivery of complex capital programmes for clients in the public and private sectors across the globe.Current projects include the design and programme management of the civil works for the Dubai Metro red and green lines, the Bahrain World Trade Center, and resort developments such as Durrat Al Bahrain.
