BIRMINGHAM, England (June 18, 2018) — Burns & McDonnell, an engineering, architecture, construction and consultant firm, has secured a place on Ofgem’s Technical Consultancy Services Framework. This places the firm in a strong position to deliver innovative, specialised engineering and technical advisory services to the regulator.
Birmingham-based Burns & McDonnell was successful in both of the categories it bid for — electrical engineering and specialist technical advisor services.
The company is now eligible to bid for technical support roles in the design, construction, operation, performance and maintenance of electricity projects.
The global firm opened its first UK offices in Birmingham last year and has built a reputation for delivering market-leading technical support and delivery services in the energy market. Burns & McDonnell was recently selected by Keele University as the Lead Technical Advisor for Europe’s first Smart Energy Network Demonstrator, a £15 million investment that will support more than 240 jobs in the West Midlands.
“We are delighted to have been successful in our two bids on the Technical Consultancy Services Framework, and to have been recognised by Ofgem for our engineering and technical advisory experience. Having secured a place on the framework, we are in a strong position to deliver skilled technical advisory services to Ofgem across multiple projects.
“This is the latest step in expanding Burns & McDonnell’s UK footprint. We have recently begun work as lead advisor on Keele University’s world-leading Smart Energy Network Demonstrator project and continue to develop our services and expand our UK partnerships.”
