BWB are delighted to announce we have been awarded a place on Lot 6 – ‘Advisory Services in Niche Specialisms’ for the Midlands Connect Specialist Technical Framework– in support of West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). This six-lot framework will run for four years until 2025 acting as a procurement vehicle for local authorities and Transport for West Midlands.
BWB’s inclusion builds on our growing public sector client base and the increased core service offerings from our Birmingham and Nottingham offices.

Chris Miller-Jones, Director of Sustainability at BWB and part of the BWB Birmingham office, will be the framework director. Chris commented:
“This is a great opportunity for BWB and adds to the already strong presence we have across the Midlands with our highly experienced Environment Group. As well as this, the timing could not be better, with the Government’s recently published Transport Decarbonisation Plan. We are excited to be involved in the development of a cleaner, greener and more sustainable transport network across the region.”
Iqbal Rasool, Environment Group Director, also praised BWBs selection:
“Midlands Connect is essential in creating a more sustainable, environmentally friendly, productive and mobile Midlands. BWB are fully behind any initiatives that bring integrated transport outcomes and improved connectivity leading to greater long-term benefits for the region, and the wider UK. To be selected amongst some of the country’s leading consultancies to assist in delivering environmentally considered schemes is recognition of our agility and calibre as environmental consultants and technicians.”
