Los Angeles-based Aecom Technology has acquired Tishman Construction in a $245 million deal, the companies announced today. New York City-based Tishman, one of the largest construction companies in the country, has overseen numerous high-profile projects including the original World Trade Center, One Bryant Park — the first LEED-Platinum skyscraper in the world — and Disney World’s Epcot Center.

Daniel Tishman will remain chairman and CEO of the 900-employee construction company, while also assuming a role as a vice chairman and board member with publicly traded Aecom.

In a live teleconference this evening, John Dionsio, president and CEO of Aecom, which currently has around 45,000 employees worldwide and has jobs in more than 100 countries, said that the company’s acquisition reflected a desire to engage in different markets.

“The addition of Tishman to the Aecom enterprise reflects our commitment to execute on our stated strategy of growth and diversification,” Dionisio said, adding that he plans to utilize the company in its global projects. “We’re looking to advance Tishman in each of the markets that we’re in.”

Both executives emphasized that there would be no disruption to client services as a result of the acquisition.

The two companies have partnered before — recently working together on the new Yankee Stadium.

“We are expanding our portfolio of global expertise and enhancing our ability to meet the growing customer demand for turnkey solutions,” Dionsio said.

Aecom said it plans to “maintain the Tishman name” because of its recognizability.

No layoffs are planned due to the acquisition, Dionsio said.

The transaction was made using a combination of cash and common stock.
