Livesey, Son & Henderson, consulting engineers

Brodie Haldane Henderson joined the board of James Livesey & Son in 1894 and the name was changed to Livesey, Son & Henderson.

The business grew exponentially in this period with railway interests in countries across South America and Africa. Notably, the firm were involved in the design of the 2.82 mile-long Lower Zambesi Bridge over the Zambesi River in Mozambique and the Transandine railway tunnel in Chile.

Brodie Haldane Henderson's brother, Sir Alexander Henderson, provided capital for many of the company's projects. Haldane Henderson also served as president of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

The name of the company was changed in 1932 to Livesey & Henderson, although it is unclear as to the reason for this change.
