Civil and structural engineering company BSP Consulting has been appointed to a framework by a housing group planning to build more than 1,500 homes over the next three years.
The Nottingham-based business, with offices in Leicester, Derby and Sheffield, has been selected as part of the Bromford Group Consultants Framework.
BSP is one of three engineers chosen by Bromford Group to tender for housing projects across an area that includes Birmingham and the West Midlands, Stoke, Cheltenham, parts of Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire, and some areas of Derbyshire, including Erewash and South Derbyshire, and Derby.
“Being selected for the Bromford Group framework is a significant appointment for BSP Consulting,” said BSP Consulting business development director Jef Todd.
“It was a competitive process to secure a place on the framework, and we are delighted that BSP is one of the three successful engineering consultants appointed to help the Bromford Group to build new homes over the next three years.
“The team at BSP has extensive expertise and experience in designing housing projects, both in the private and public sector, and we are looking forward to supporting the Bromford Group in its plans to build much-needed new homes.”
It brings to six the number of housing frameworks that BSP has been appointed to. Bromford business assurance manager Jayne Forrester believes the fifteen businesses who were successful during the procurement process will help Bromford create a new vision for affordable housing.
She said: “This procurement framework will place Bromford in a strong position moving forward, as 2013/14 looks to be an exciting year for our New Homes team. By introducing this new framework, we can ensure continuing efficiency and sustainability through our procurement processes.
“BSP submitted a fantastic application offering value for money on their services, something incredibly important for a social business which is publicly funded.
We look forward to utilising BSP’s expertise over the next few years, pushing some innovative housing projects forward.”
Bromford, which has offices across Central England, will work with BSP on a number of its own developments.
The procurement framework also allows other affordable housing providers to access the framework through Bromford.
This initiative could potentially see BSP working with South Shropshire Housing, Staffordshire Housing, Wyre Forest Community Housing, Coventry-based Orbit, Walsall Housing Group and Cheltenham Borough Home.
BSP Consulting, with its head office at Oxford Street in Nottingham, 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.
It was founded in 1999 and operates across the UK.
