BCS, the digital built asset consultancy, has announced it is joining RSBG SE, the patient capital investment arm of RAG Stiftung, a foundation with the long-term public purpose to deal with environmental protection.
Under the terms of the deal, RSBG will become a long-term investor in BCS which has doubled the size of its business in the past 12 months, supporting its continuing growth and development. RSBG has over 65 locations across 30 countries which will drive expansion and internationalisation, enabling BCS to continue to support its clients in the geographies they need to be.
The move will see no changes to the BCS management team, personnel, brand or day-to-day operations. The company will also benefit from a strategic partnership with McBains, a leading property and construction consultancy, as part of RSBG’s Project Management pillar, and together they will be able to access the ingredients for growth offered by the group. The new parent company of The BCS Consulting Group Ltd is MBC Group Ltd. James Hart, CEO of BCS and Clive Docwra, Managing Director of McBains, will sit together on the board of MBC.
James Hart, CEO at BCS, said:
“RSBG is an experienced partner and investor who specialises in the acquisition, expansion and internationalisation of medium-sized companies. We believe they have a unique model for investing in small and medium sized entrepreneurial companies and, since they launched, they have grown into a collaborative network supporting over 6,500 careers across the globe. RSBG’s mission is to generate sustainable funds for the foundation, so our work will be directly contributing to protecting the environment.”
Clive Docwra, Managing Director, McBains, said:
“We very much welcome the addition of BCS as a sister company and believe it provides ourselves and the wider group with an even stronger project and cost management offering; bringing access to new sectors and a wider geography.”
