The economic outlooks across Europe is brightening, as lockdowns ease and the British economy rebounds.

BG&E provided construction engineering services and temporary works for several high-rise towers in London, including 22 Bishopsgate, the tallest, slender tower on the left.

A speedy vaccination roll-out, reopening of schools and a slim climb in retail spending are supporting economic recovery in the United Kingdom (UK). In March 2021, the Office of National Statistics reported two per cent growth and this will continue, especially if the expected easing of Brexit-related trade issues eventuates, then Gross Domestic Product is expected to grow by approximately five per cent.

Like many countries, the UK has also benefited from massive government intervention, most notably via the Job Retention Scheme, which is helping to keep unemployment low.

In this evolving social and economic environment, 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 contractors, developers, architects, planners, financiers and government agencies, to solve complex challenges.

Our portfolio of services includes structural, civil, construction and digital engineering, façades, and materials durability and testing, primarily for iconic mixed-use, commercial and residential developments, as well as rail infrastructure.

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.
