In addition to our three COWI regions and our major business line, COWI also consists of COWI CMC (emerging markets in China, Middle East and Central and Eastern Europe) together with a number of additional global business lines within mapping, airports, railways and hospital buildings. This organization ensures that all business units can draw on the entire Group's vast international expertise while working in close dialogue with the local/regional/global customers.

The COWI Group maintains 36 branch offices and affiliated offices in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas.

 

COWI organization

The basis of the COWI Group strategy is the provision of a combination of multidisciplinary services to local markets and specialists services to the global market. In local and regional markets, COWI offers the full gamut of its services. Reflecting these multidisciplinary services, international professional networks have been established across the COWI regions. These business networks operate as one company network across geographies and cultures to the benefit of our customers, employees and provided services.
