The decline in North America was driven in part by the expected completion of several engagements at the end of last year and in the first quarter of 2011, as well as delays in the commencement of new projects, the company reported.
First-quarter gross margin rose to 25.8 percent, it highest level in nine quarters and up from 25.1 percent a year ago.
