Faithful+Gould is an integrated project and programme management consultancy. It supports clients with the management of their construction projects and programmes. It is part of Atkins – a design, engineering and project management consultancy.


The company was established by Eric Faithful and Leonard Gould in 1947 and became part of Atkins in 1996.[1] It subsequently expanded organically and through a series of acquisitions including Silk & Frazier in 1998, Yeoman & Edwards in 1999 and Hanscomb in 2002.[2]

In 2012 Simon Burns, the Minister for Transport, admitted in Parliament that it had been Faithful+Gould who had been responsible for the franchising policy design for the InterCity West Coast franchise competition which was abandoned.[3] The Laidlaw Inquiry made no criticism of the firm's conduct.[4]

The company went on to buy Confuence, a project management business, in 2013.[5]


Faithful+Gould employs over 2,000 staff and has an expanding office base worldwide.[6]
