Oscar Faber was bought last year by the engineering multinational Aecom Technology. The Hertfordshire engineering consultancy, now called FaberMaunsell, started life designing the Bank of England building on Threadneedle Street in 1921. More recently, it has been involved in the restoration of Windsor Castle after the 1992 fire and in advising the government on its 10-year transport plan. Such high-profile projects helped drive up profits by 26% a year from £2.6m in 1998 to £5.1m in 2001, when it employed 933 people.
