On 19 January, the Association of Consultancy & Engineering named Nottingham-based BWB Consulting as the Best UK Consultancy (large) at its annual Engineering & Consultancy Awards.
The prestigious annual awards celebrate the best people, projects and companies from engineering consultancy and the built environment.
BWB was formed in 1990 and now employs over 400 people across five regional offices, including Rail Civils, Track and Signalling disciplines.
BWB has worked on major national and international rail projects, including:
• Parramatta Light Railway, Australia
• Nottingham NET Phase 2
• iPort Strategic Frieght
• Wales & Borders Gauging
• Prologis Park, Coventry
• J-NET, Jerusalem Light Rail
• Dollands Moor Frieght Yard, and
• East Midlands Gateway SRFI
BWB’s CEO, Steve Wooler, summed up the significance of the evening:
“This award, in so many ways, represents BWB’s ‘coming of age’ by demonstrating that we’re seen to not only compete in the premier league of UK Consultants but also to excel. It’s a truly remarkable achievement that recognises recent unprecedented growth, business performance, and diversification, underpinned by growing success in the rail and infrastructure sectors and blue-chip developer Clients entrusting us with their major projects.
“Perhaps this recognition means I’ll no longer have to answer the question I’m sometimes asked, ‘Who are BWB?’ with the response ‘We’re probably the biggest Consultant you’ve never heard of!’”
BWB was also recently recognised by Investors in People for its outstanding achievements in people development and corporate culture and awarded the highest Platinum status. It is the only Large UK Engineering Consultancy to obtain this recognition.
The Association of Consultancy & Engineering (ACE) represents the views of around 400 businesses working in consultancy and engineering, from the very large to the specialist. Its members are renowned for the quality of their work and in-demand to help deliver key projects and programmes in the UK and abroad.
The awards ceremony was held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on Thursday 19 January.
