Civil and structural engineering company BSP Consulting is celebrating after three schemes the firm was involved in were recognised at the fbe East Midlands Dinner & Awards 2012.

The accolades are designed to reward the whole team behind schemes in the region which fit the ethos of the fbe (Forum for the Built Environment) – a leading networking organisation for the property, development and construction industries.

BSP acted as engineers on three developments that were highlighted at the awards event, which took place in Leicester.

Derwent Living’s housing project at Vicarage Road in Derby won the Derbyshire category. The development – Derwent Living’s first level 5 Code for Sustainable Homes scheme – features a range of eco-technologies as standard.

Other members of the team were contractor Lindum Sturgeon, architects Franklin Ellis Architects, employer’s agent WT Partnership and Derby City Council.

The William Davis housing scheme for Tuntum Housing Association at Hibiscus Court in Nottingham was named the winner of the Nottinghamshire category. Hibiscus Court – an apartment building for the over 55s in St Ann’s – went on to be named the best project in the East Midlands at the awards.

Other members of the Hibiscus Court team were architects Geoff Carter Architects and Nottingham City Council.

Meanwhile the Cawrey Development Ltd environmentally conscious housing project in Fielding Lane, Ratby, Leicestershire, was highly commended. The homes use an estimated 50% less energy than a standard new build due to environmentally friendly features to save energy and minimise carbon footprint.

“BSP Consulting is proud to have been a part of the teams behind three schemes that were recognised at the fbe East Midlands Dinner & Awards for projects in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire,” said BSP business development director Jef Todd.

“Since being founded in 1999, we have built up strong working relationships with others in the development and construction industries in the East Midlands.”

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

The company provides a comprehensive range of consultancy services in civil, structural, geotechnical, transportation and environmental engineering to all sectors of the construction community, from architects, project managers and contractors to developers and estate agents.
