Meeting the challenges of our digital future.

At BCS we are empowered by our reputation, our deep specialist expertise and our track record. We have the ability, passion and drive to do more and better for our industry and our world. We have an important role to play in creating a positive digital future for business and people.

Established in 2016 with a desire to make a difference to our clients and people, we recognise that we are citizens of our technological and natural world. We work alongside our clients every day in a race against time and change. Like all businesses today, we are a technology business; we understand the pain points, and we connect with our clients not just as consultants but as human beings who care about our world and our planet. We are empowered not in spite of our citizenship, but because of it.

Missions & Values

BCS is the digital built asset consultancy. We believe that the effective deployment of technology is as important as the technology itself. Delivering digital built assets requires the right people with the right skills working together in the right way.  So, for the sake of our digital future, we have a responsibility to develop and nurture the next generation of those people now.
