Award-winning communications consultancy BECG to partner with Building Brum

BECG is delighted to announce it is partnering with one of the biggest cross institute built environment networking series, Building Brum. Recently announced by PR Week as the leading public affairs agency in the UK, our Birmingham-based team has been at the heart of the Birmingham development community for some years. This new partnership provides an opportunity for BECG to promote development across the city, supporting the Second City’s political ambition to create ‘A Golden Decade of Growth’.

Now based at 55 Colmore Row, our Birmingham team has rapidly grown its client base in the city over the last 12 months. Our specialist consultants have helped to deliver significant inward investment into Birmingham over the last 12 months, including Cole Waterhouse’s £200m+ mixed-use development at Upper Trinity Street, Digbeth, Watkin Jones’ 500 bed student accommodation scheme in Selly Oak and St Modwen’s continued regeneration of Longbridge.

Kevin Whitmore, Director for BECG said:

Birmingham is a city entering a golden decade of growth and BECG is determined to be at the heart of the amazing transformation of this wonderful city.

Partnering with Building Brum signals our commitment to Birmingham following two years of significant growth within our team. We look forward to helping to promote the industry and the city in the years to come.

Conor Nolan, Building Brum Programme Director:

It is great to be collaborating with BECG. The industry has an important story to tell across the city and with BECG we have partnered with the leading communications agency in the built environment sector.

Our growing network is attracting attention from across the sector, and we’re delighted to be partnering with BECG.

The Leader of Birmingham City Council, Cllr Ian Ward, has championed the development sector as a key driver in Birmingham’s ambition to create a ‘Golden Decade of Growth’ across the city.

Cllr Ian Ward said:

We’re building homes and creating jobs and opportunities for the people and communities of Birmingham, and I’m delighted that Building Brum is continuing to play a major role – expanding its reach across the city. It is vitally important that the city welcomes investors and developers who want to help the council improve the lives and life chances of our citizens.

BECG is a longstanding member of the development community in the city and the work they do is vital to ensure local communities and stakeholders can have their say on developments across the whole of the city.

I look forward to working with Building Brum and BECG in the months and years ahead.
