BWB builds up with DKS Consulting deal
Catapult investee company BWB has further expanded its capabilities with the acquisition of a mechanical and electrical engineering specialist, DKS Consulting.
BWB has a national network of offices in London, Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester and Leeds that together generate an annual turnover of £10.5m and employ some 150 people. It delivers a range of engineering services centred around the built environment, transportation and infrastructure and environmental sectors.
The transaction marks the latest step by BWB in an ambitious growth plan that has seen it take on a number of high-profile projects and expand internationally through a new joint venture in Australia.
Steve Wooler, Managing Director of BWB Consulting, said: "The acquisition of DKS is part of a wider expansion strategy which we're achieving through a mix of organic growth and moving into new markets. Having the right blend of expertise is a crucial part of that and the incorporation of the DKS specialist skill set will enable us to offer a broader range of services and innovative integrated solutions to our Clients. The strategy is already bearing fruit because we are utilising the DKS expertise as part of our multi-disciplinary service for a major residential led project on the Isle of Dogs, on a site that is a stone’s throw from Canary Wharf. "The addition of this new expertise will strengthen our capabilities and provide a more comprehensive offering for the numerous valued Clients we are privileged to work with."
