Building Services Consultancy of the Year (under 100 employees)

Beverley Clifton Morris (BCM)

BCM takes the award for its commitment to training and development of staff, investment in BIM processes and emphasis on low carbon building solutions.

BCM specialises in sustainability and low-cost, low-carbon building solutions, taking a holistic view of building design (fabric, glazing and services). This philosophy requires signifi cant investment in the training and development of staff, with BCM's in-house scheme leading to Chartered Engineer status. Staff are encouraged to continue with their learning and development, so that the fi rm can grow and best serve the needs of its clients. Regular continuing professional development (CPD) sessions keep staff up-to-date and weekly staff meetings ensure there is a feedback loop.

By investing heavily, BCM has become a leading force in the use of building information modelling (BIM) processes, developing a bespoke design process to deliver strategic advice to clients. This approach generates graphical information on carbon emissions, running costs and capital costs for each option, which can then be appraised with the client. Among its team, BCM has a range of low carbon, energy effi ciency and building performance experts, including: three CIBSE Low Carbon Consultants; one CIBSE Level 5 Low Carbon Energy Assessor; and one NHER On Construction Domestic Energy Assessor. BCM's commissioning managers are involved in soft landings processes for Manchester City Council's Building Schools for the Future Wave 4 schools, and the fi rm encourages clients to populate tools such as CarbonBuzz to obtain information about how buildings operate to close the performance gap.
