BSP Consulting – one of the largest independent civil and structural engineering companies in the East Midlands

East Midlands-based civil and structural engineering firm BSP Consulting has worked in Leicestershire for more than 20 years and opened a dedicated Leicester office in 2007 as part of its expansion across the region.

An award-winning company, BSP offers civil engineering, structural engineering, transport engineering, geotechnical and environmental engineering across all sectors.

For the BSP team, it’s not just about doing the job. It’s about a commitment to deliver, offering good communication, providing excellent expertise and value engineering. The company prides itself on coming up with innovative solutions to problems and challenges – and this is what many of the firm’s clients really appreciate and value.

BSP Consulting is currently on ten frameworks including the De Montfort University Framework and the EEM Ltd Dynamic Purchasing System, and on an additional five core frameworks in collaboration with others.

Our projects

The company is proud to have played a role in hundreds of schemes in Leicestershire, from small bespoke projects to major developments.

From schools and housing through to heritage sites and industrial units, BSP Consulting has provided engineering expertise which has helped to shape Leicester and the surrounding county.

And the company continues to do so….

BSP Consulting is currently working on the new £13.5m bus station in Leicester and is the civil and structural engineer on the Jewry Wall Museum renovation in the city, which aims to transform the site into a world-class visitor centre.

Here is a flavour of a handful of Leicestershire projects that we’ve been involved in. You can see many more under the projects page of our website. Please get in touch if we can help with your projects….whatever stage they are at.

Project focus – Loughborough University

BSP Consulting was the structural engineer on the £30m refurbishment scheme delivered by contractor Henry Brothers on the W and S buildings at Loughborough University.

The largest refurbishment project ever carried out at the university, it was undertaken meticulously in 19 different phases over more than two years to enable university staff and students to carry on with their work and to minimise disruption.

The scheme involved upgrading labs, offices, study areas, lecture theatres, kitchens, toilets and refreshment venues to create light, airy and modern amenities, with state-of-the-art equipment, first-class teaching and learning facilities, and attractive break out spaces.

More than 17,000 sq m of space over three floors was refurbished and modernised in the two 1960s buildings, which are linked.

Project focus – Slack & Parr, Kegworth

One of many industrial projects completed by BSP Consulting, the Slack & Parr development involved the delivery of a £4.3m precision engineering facility.

Slack & Parr is a market leader in high precision engineering – designing and manufacturing the most advanced precision gear metering pumps, industrial dosing pumps and hydraulics flow divider solutions.

BSP’s role in the new manufacturing HQ facility included design of the foundations, the concrete service yard, the car parking area and the foul and surface water drainage to connect into the wider site, where housing is being built.

The 5,300m² project, which was designed by Staniforth Architects, project managed by Benchmark Property and built by Warwick Burt Construction, was completed in 2020.

Project focus – Birkett House School in Wigston

The award-winning £10m Birkett House School at Wigston in Leicestershire provides space for 175 pupils aged four to 19 with special educational needs, from profound and multiple learning difficulties to a moderate disability.

BSP was civil and structural engineer for the project to build the new school, which relocated to a new site at the Wigston Secondary School campus in 2017.

The company also provided pre-planning services, including flood risk assessment and traffic and transport expertise for the Leicestershire County Council development.

Built by Willmott Dixon and with A&G and DSA Environment + Design Ltd as the architects, the scheme went on to win awards including a prestigious Green Apple Award for the innovative sustainable drainage system installed at the school and an East Midlands fbe Award, where it was awarded project of the year in the Non-Residential Award category in 2017.

Project focus – student accommodation at 54 London Road, Leicester

BSP Consulting provided civil and structural engineering services for the six to seven-storey student accommodation scheme next to Leicester railway station.

Featuring 132 bedrooms, high quality communal areas and ground-floor retail space, the Abode development featured a fusion build insulated light gauge steel system which provided advantages to the speed in which the superstructure could be erected and made watertight.

Working closely with BEC M&E engineers, BSP adapted a communal area to incorporate a plant room with new incoming feeds below foundations and through floor with a bespoke flooring solution. Hot water was provided by air source heat pumps.

Contractor JA Ball built the £5.5m scheme, which was completed in 2017.

Project focus – National Space Centre in Leicester

BSP Consulting was proud to have played a part in improving the facilities at the National Space Centre in Leicester.

The company was the engineer on a project to create a new mezzanine floor at the venue which houses an Extended Reality creative studio, focusing on teaching and developing virtual, augmented and mixed reality.

Built by Woodhead Group and procured through Scape Venture, the development was completed in 2020.

The work was technically challenging as it involved assessment of the existing structure and adding a new floor to both abut up to, and be supported off, the existing steel frame.

Project focus – Get Busy Living rehabilitation centre near Melton Mowbray

Along with other local companies, BSP donated expertise to help the Matt Hampson Foundation to build a rehabilitation for those who have suffered catastrophic injury through sport.

The team provided civil, structural and geotechnical engineering support for the Get Busy Living Centre, which transformed the site of a former aircraft hangar at Burrough Court Estate near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire into a specialist centre where beneficiaries of the foundation’s services could receive support.

The Foundation was launched by Matt Hampson who, during an England Under 21 rugby training session in 2005, was paralysed from the neck down.

Project focus – Makers’ Yard, Leicester

The conversion of the previously derelict grade II listed, 1860s former Charnwood Hosiery factory in Rutland Street, Leicester, created ten inspirational workspaces for creative businesses.

Makers’ Yard subsequently went on to win numerous awards including a Leicester Civic Society Award for restoration in 2012 and Regeneration Project of the Year at the ProCon Leicestershire Awards in 2013.

BSP was the structural engineer on the £1.4m project delivered for Leicester City Council by Morgan Sindall.

Project focus – Brooksby Melton College

BSP Consulting was civil and structural engineer on the £9.1m specialist college campus at Brooksby Melton College.

Creating five new buildings to provide modern teaching facilities for motor vehicle, service engineering, construction, floristry, horticulture, environmental industries, foundation learning and a new multi-purpose sports hall, plus 3G pitch, the scheme was completed in 2015.

Contractor was Bowmer & Kirkland.
