  • Tetley Brewery Arena Central, Birmingham
  • The redevelopment of Pebble Mill,
  • Resort World at the NEC,
  • New BBC Headquarters, Typho Wharf
  • Braodmarch Redevelopment, Nottingham, and
  • Nottingham Eastside

BWB’s CEO, Steve Wooler, summed up the significance of the evening, “This award, in so many ways, represents BWB’s ‘coming of age’ by demonstrating that we’re seen to not only compete in the premier league of UK Consultants but also to excel. It’s a truly remarkable achievement that recognises recent unprecedented growth, business performance and diversification, underpinned by growing success in the rail and infrastructure sectors and blue-chip developer Clients entrusting us with their major projects.

We’ve grown and diversified in lockstep with long-term, highly valued Clients who share congruent business objectives and complementary business cultures.

Perhaps this recognition means I’ll no longer have to answer the question I’m sometimes asked, “Who are BWB? with the response “, we’re probably the biggest Consultant you’ve never heard of! 

BWB was also recently recognised by Investors in People for our outstanding achievements in people development and corporate culture and  awarded the highest Platinum status - the only Large UK Engineering Consultancy to obtain this recognition
