Newly formed QS firm wins £1.5m of work a month after it listed on AIM

Newly-formed QS practice Baqus secured a number of contracts in the education sector worth £1.5m to the company.

The total value of the contracts adds up to £220m. The projects include a £90m reconfiguration project of East Berkshire College's Langley Campus, a £60m redevelopment of Luton Sixth Form College's Bradgers Hill Road Campus, and a £70m contract to redevelop Havering Sixth Form College's entire estate.

After forming out of the merger of QS consultancies Boxall Sayer, Denley King and Fletcher McNeil, the company listed on the AIM on 14 December.

Baqus chief executive, Clive Sayer, said: “This is a great start to Baqus's life as an AIM listed company. The three project tender wins were, without doubt, aided by the work that Baqus has already completed on the £101m redevelopment of Oaklands College, St Albans.

“Looking to the future, Baqus's increased geographical spread, together with our strategy for expansion, should lead to more successful tender wins in this and other sectors.”
