Building company moves to bigger premises due to expanding team

Building Services Design (BSD) has moved from Birmingham city centre to new premises at Fort Dunlop, the  mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy as announced.

It will be moving to a 2,000 sq ft space with two meeting rooms to accommodate its growing team of engineers, which has grown from 15 to 21 in the last six months.

Jo Jones, associate director at BSD, said the company is seeing an increase in work across hotel, accommodation and office space in “anticipation of an influx of tourists and visitors” for the city’s 2022 Commonwealth Games.

“We’ve seen work increase across a number of sectors, including: private rental schemes (PRS), standalone bespoke residential properties, leisure facilities, retail facilities and change of use schemes, which are often converting office spaces into residential opportunities.

“The space now encourages more interaction between staff, encouraging a more social atmosphere and room for collaborative working. We also hold monthly ‘cluster’ events where we have themed lunchtimes and we all sit and eat together, which I know the staff really enjoy.”

“The property market is still performing well in the West Midlands and there’s certainly a need for more homes in the region to sustain demand. Birmingham has also got a thriving student population so our experience in student residential work – as well as the delivery of university buildings – is also extensive.”
