Celebrating 20 Years!

GroupBC celebrated 20 years in operation with an exclusive event held for partners, customers and staff at its head office in Reading.

Unveiling BC HQ’s fresh look as well as its new employees and an exciting solution roadmap, the event was well attended by both new and old faces alike. Festivities included drinks and canapes, followed by a welcome from CEO, Wes Simmons.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Simmons said: “Commemorating our 20thyear in operation with an event such as this allows us to reflect on the company’s successes and achievements. We have proved to be an organisation which blends passion for technology with proven pedigree in enterprise scale, construction CDE solution design and delivery, and reward ourselves on the positive impacts we have made to the industry.”

“This event was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our new office spaces, upcoming projects and our latest software developments as we look forward into the future of BC.”

One of the evening’s highlights was an informative talk by Dr. Mark Bew MBE, chairman of BIM consultancy PCSG. A widely-recognised industry expert, Mark reflected on how he became involved with BC during his time at Costain and Scott Wilson, as well as looking at the leading technologies which have revolutionised the construction sector; giving his forecast of what the industry might look like in the next 20 years.

GroupBC is delighted to have celebrated its 20 years with its loyal customers, such as Balfour Beatty,  Sainsbury’s, Thames Water, and Mackley; partners including PCSG, Excitech, and Secura, as well as staff members and is extremely excited to see what its next phase has in store.
