BSP Consulting, the civil and structural engineering company based in the East Midlands have been celebrating their ten-year anniversary. It has been a decade since the company opened their Leicester office on De Montfort Street. This Leicester office was the third to be opened by the group.
Since moving to Leicester, BSP Consulting has moved to larger premises in order to cater for the increasing demand for their services in the area. The larger location is twice the size of their original De Montfort premises, which were opened in December 2007. When the office first opened, three staff worked there, and has since developed and grown, allowing the Leicester arm of BSP Consulting to establish themselves as a key civil and structural engineering company in the city.
Over the decade that the company has been in operation in Leicester they have managed to increase the range of services that they offer to include pre-planning support as well as traffic and transport engineering. Because of the expansion of services offered at the site, there has been an expansion in the team. This growth of services has also helped to improve the company’s reputation, helping to attract more and more customers and leading to the employment of more and more engineers and technicians from their Leicester base. Over the past ten years, the company has grown their team from three to fifteen, who now work across the city, country and beyond.
In Leicester BSP has offered their civil and structural engineering services to a range of key projects in Leicester and Leicestershire. These projects include Makers’ Yard in Leicester’s Creative Quarter as well as buildings for Brooksby Melton College and refurbishment work that has taken place at Loughborough University. The company has also worked to support the development of the Get Busy Living Centre located near to Melton Mowbray, a rehabilitation centre for those who have life-changing sporting injuries. This centre is spearheaded by the Matt Hampson Foundation, a charity set up by the former England Under 21 and Leicester Tigers player Matt Hampson who was paralysed in a Rugby accident.
