BWB SHORTLISTED FOR 4 CONSULTANCY AND ENGINEERING AWARDS
21 March 2017
BWB Consulting is thrilled to have been shortlisted in each of the four categories we entered at this year’s Consultancy and Engineering Awards. We’ve been named as contenders in the Best UK Business Performance (Large Firm), Training Initiative of the Year and, for the first time, Inclusion & Diversity Champion and Technology Champion categories.
The annual industry awards are run by the Association for Consultancy and Engineering to showcase the very best that the built environment sector has to offer. BWB has built an impressive track record in recent years by winning three categories in 2015 and a further two in 2016.
BWB Chief Executive Steve Wooler said: "This success is the culmination of targeted investment in aspects of our business that are central to being seen as an Employer of Choice. Attracting top talent, irrespective of background, and providing the tools and opportunity to flourish in a growing business is clearly reaping dividends. I'm delighted and also very proud that, having made the transition into ACE's Large Company category, our business performance is ranked alongside some of the best-known names in the UK's consultancy sector. "
Speaking about the Technology Champion Category Jon Frost, Head of Digital Services, said “BWB’s understanding of digital technologies has increased massively over the past year or two, and with it our ability to shape and evolve our business into a high value, whole life cycle consultancy service. We’re very proud of our innovative approach, which includes the formation of a new business, Deetu, with the remit to provide digital & data solutions for the built environment.”
The winners will be announced at a gala dinner in central London on June 7th and the event will be hosted by award-winning television news journalist Clive Myrie.
Nelson Ogunshakin, Chief Executive of ACE, said: “The strength of this year's entries is a clear indicator that the future is bright for our industry. Congratulations to all those shortlisted for their remarkable achievements from companies across the built and natural environment sector. At a time when we face a number of political uncertainties ahead, it is vital for our industry to continue to be a backbone for the UK economy, not only providing the best properties, housing, schools, retail and major infrastructure investments necessary for modern life, but also acting as a shining beacon of exceptional talent and innovation.”
