United Kingdom & Europe
United Kingdom & Europe

The outlook for the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe is bright, as borders open and economies rebound.

In the UK, living with Covid is slowly becoming the ‘next normal’. The Manufacturing and Construction sectors regained most of the ground lost during the pandemic, the Hospitality, Retail and Property sectors are following, albeit modestly and the government’s Build Back Better program is fueling continued implementation of major infrastructure. Coupled with the combination of excess savings, pent-up consumer demand and a trade agreement being reached with the European Union, these are all positive indicators.

In this evolving social and economic landscape, BG&E is poised to continue delivering projects, throughout the boroughs of London, other growing cities in the UK and in Europe, including in Spain, Austria and Serbia.

In 2016, we established our business in London and since then our technical experts have been working with clients to solve complex engineering challenges.

Locally, our technical expertise includes structural, civil, construction and digital engineering, facades, and materials and durability services, with a focus on iconic mixed-use, commercial and residential developments, and rail infrastructure.

BG&E have provided various services for iconic developments in the UK and beyond, including 22 Bishopsgate, Principal Place, Royal Albert Docks and 21 Moorfields in London, Uptown Riverside apartments, the Renaissance Hotel Redevelopment and Premier House in Manchester, Sky Tower in Limassol and Kula Tower in Belgrade, among others.

Our London-based team have also contributed to data centres across Europe, providing civil and structural design and construction engineering services for a 4.8-megawatt single storey centre in Madrid, a 16-megawatt two-storey centre in Berlin and a 4.8-megawatt single storey centre in Vienna.

Similarly in the Infrastructure sector, our bridge experts are contributing structural and civil engineering to an undisclosed major infrastructure project in the UK.

Sustainability In Construction
On the back of the UK’s sixth Carbon Budget and the ambitious target to be net zero by 2050, we are helping clients to reduce their carbon emissions.

To us, sustainability in construction means drawing on our collective ingenuity, creativity and humanity, to help clients deliver high-performing, low carbon emission developments.

We apply a holistic lens to reducing emissions on structural projects, which includes:

  • considering structural design in totality, rather than the design of individual elements, which requires collaboration with other contributing parties/consultants;
  • specification of materials and the proximity to site(s);
  • transportation methods of materials to site;
  • construction methods; and
  • final usage/operation of the structure.
