A new relationship to span the hemispheres.


Hoare Lea & Umow Lai.

We are pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with Umow Lai, a national MEP engineering practice based in Australia.

Founded in 1991, Umow Lai has offices in Melborne, Sydney, and Brisbane, and currently employs more than 150 people.

This agreement will be beneficial to both firms and will enable us to jointly bid for major projects in Australia and Asia, where our collective strengths will provide a unique point of difference.

Although based in different hemispheres, we both operate in a complementary range of sectors, and are focused on MEP and associated specialist services. Our collaboration with Umow Lai allows us to work with an organisation that shares our passion for innovation and providing clients with the highest quality service, across a diverse geography.

We look forward to working alongside Umow Lai, and to realising the full potential of this exciting initiative.
