East Midlands-based civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting has appointed two new associates.

Chartered engineers Paul Garton and Paul Elphick have been promoted to the position in recognition of their hard work and dedication to the company.

They played a key role in launching the Leicester office of BSP Consulting in 2008, and have since built up and developed the client base of the team in the city and beyond.

“BSP Consulting is very pleased to announce the promotion of Paul Garton and Paul Elphick to the position of associate, and would like to place on record our thanks for the commitment shown by them to the company,” said BSP Consulting managing director David Sumner.

“Since opening the office in Leicester more than four years ago, Paul Garton and Paul Elphick have been instrumental in firmly establishing our presence in the city.”

Paul Garton joined BSP Consulting in 2005, while Paul Elphick has been with the company since 2004.

BSP Consulting, which is based in Oxford Street, Nottingham, has offices in Pride Park, Derby, De Montfort Street, Leicester, and Solly Street, Sheffield.

The Leicester office was the third office opened by the company, which operates across the UK, offering civil, structural, transportation, environmental and geotechnical engineering services.

Paul Garton and Paul Elphick have been based in the Leicester office since it was launched. It has doubled in size since it opened, and now has ten staff.

Named Consultant of the Year 2009 at the East Midlands Property Dinner, BSP Consulting 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.
