Turner & Townsend expands its USA west coast operations with acquisition of leading bay area firm, Trestle Construction Management LLC

Turner & Townsend, the global program management and construction consultancy, is building on a long period of sustained growth in its San Francisco Bay Area operations with the acquisition of Trestle Construction Management LLC.

Turner & Townsend’s team of consultants is currently supporting capital projects in infrastructure and real estate across the Bay Area for a series of global brands, including the oil giant Chevron, Genentech, Intel, Pacific Eagle, Russell Investments and several other world-leading banking, technology, hotel, residential, retail and bio-pharmaceutical companies.

Its offering combines global expertise with in-depth local market knowledge, and is a natural fit with the South Bay-based project and construction management specialists Trestle.

Trestle combines an impeccable construction management pedigree with a roll call of successful projects in the technology, healthcare, banking and retail in the Bay Area and as far east as Sacramento - including Apple’s flagship store at San Francisco’s Union Square.

The expanded team in the Bay Area, led by Trestle’s Founder and President Dave Bell, will operate as Turner & Townsend Trestle as it continues to build its local client base and strengthen ties with its existing global clients. Dave will also serve on Turner & Townsend’s USA Board of Directors.

John Robbins, Managing Director of Turner & Townsend USA, commented:

“Turner & Townsend and Trestle share a similar culture and mission – to deliver consistently high quality service and advice, independent of other interests. The value we bring to our clients at all stages, from project set-up and delivery to operational readiness, makes a crucial difference to project outcomes.

“Dave Bell and his team at Trestle have an unrivalled knowledge of the market in the Bay Area. Our combined strength will boost both our capability and capacity, enabling us to better serve our existing clients and continue our rapid growth trajectory.”

Dave Bell, Founder and President of Trestle Construction Management LLC, added:

“This is an exciting time to be joining the Turner & Townsend organization, and I look forward to leading its talented Bay Area team in the next stage of its journey.

“With expertise that spans all sectors including property, infrastructure and natural resources, Turner & Townsend’s combination of global best practice with in-depth regional insight is a powerful one.

“Turner & Townsend has a compelling and well differentiated proposition as a truly independent global program and construction consultancy.  By joining with Turner & Townsend we will maintain our independent approach while also strengthening our offering to clients.
