Arcadis was founded as the land reclamation specialist Nederlandsche Heidemaatschappij in 1888. Over the following decades, the firm became involved in various development projects, initially with a rural focus. During the second half of the 20th century, the company developed its international presence as well as its shift into urban development. As a consequence of a drastic restructuring in 1974 that divided the company, it became Heidemij. It pursued a European-orientated expansion programme immediately following the end of the Cold War. During 1993, the firm merged with the North American business Geraghty & Miller, resulting in its listing on the NASDAQ index.
During 1997, the company adopted its current name, Arcadis; subsidiaries were similarly rebranded. Since 1990, the company has largely expanded itself via a series of acquisitions and mergers, which have allowed it to both expand its presence in existing markets as well as to enter new ones. It performs design and consultancy services on a wide variety of undertakings. Arcadis has been involved in several high profile construction projects, including London City Airport and the A2 motorway.
Highest paying job titles at Arcadis U.S./RTKL/RISE include Construction Manager, Wastewater Project Manager, and Project Controls Specialist
