BSP Consulting has been appointed as structural, civil and geotechnical engineer for major redevelopments at Brooksby Melton College.

The Leicestershire college is currently undertaking a £22million programme of improvements at its Melton and Brooksby campuses.

BSP, with offices in Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield, has won a contract to carry out the engineering work for the developments at the Brooksby site, which include the construction of two new two-storey teaching blocks, an extension to the animal care centre and also the building of a multi-sports hall.

Design work is now underway for the Brooksby development, which is scheduled to be completed by September 2015.

“This is a significant appointment for BSP, and we are proud to be involved in such an exciting project for Brooksby Melton College which will provide state-of-the-art facilities and improved social and teaching areas,” said BSP associate Paul Elphick.

“As a company, we have provided engineering design services at a number of educational sites, including Oakham Church of England Primary School, Landau Forte Academy in Tamworth and Darley Dale Primary School in Derbyshire. This latest project marks a considerable investment at Brooksby Melton College and will contribute to the college’s development over the next few years.”

Architect for the scheme is Maber, and the project manager and quantity surveyor is Armsons, of Darley Abbey, Derbyshire.

BSP Consulting, which has its head office at Oxford Street, Nottingham, is currently working on the designs for the improvements ahead of a detailed planning application being submitted.

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.

It was founded in 1999 and operates across the UK.
