Bovis Construction has acquired two project management companies, German-based Tillyard (Deutschland) and a sister company in Switzerland, Tillyard AG, for an undisclosed sum.Both operations are owned by Boris Fiegl, who formed the businesses on behalf of the UK group Tillyard in 1969 and 1970 and later bought them out. He will remain with the companies.Bovis chairman Sir Frank Lampl said the acquired companies, which are both also involved in cost planning and time scheduling, represented a 'significant move' for the company into the German-speaking market.Based in Dusseldorf, Tillyard (Deutschland) employs 30 and has offices in Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich. The Swiss acquisition, based in Zurich, has another office in Lucern and employs 10.Bovis hopes to combine construction management skills with Tillyard's experience in project and cost management. Both the acquisitions have worked on the New International Airport at Munich.
