Civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting has been named an approved supplier to the University of Leicester after being selected for the university’s Consultancy Framework.

BSP Consulting, which has offices in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, already has three framework agreements with development groups that provide social housing in the Midlands, the North West and Eastern England.

But this is the company’s first framework agreement in the education sector.

“BSP has gained considerable experience working in education by designing engineering for school and college facilities, and is delighted to now be part of the University of Leicester’s Consultancy Framework,” said BSP Consulting managing director David Sumner. “We hope this could lead to further links with education establishments in the region.”

BSP Consulting successfully tendered to be part of the framework agreement, which means the firm can now bid for civil and structural engineering services required by the University of Leicester.

BSP Consulting, which was named Consultant of the Year 2009 at the East Midlands Property Dinner, provides a comprehensive range of consultancy services to all sectors of the construction community, from architects, project managers and contractors to developers and estate agents. Based in the East Midlands, the firm has contracts across the UK, and is currently working on a wide variety of projects from regeneration schemes to retirement developments.

BSP employs almost 40 people across its three offices in the East Midlands – at Oxford Street, Nottingham, Pride Park, Derby, and De Montfort Street, Leicester.
