Hospice in the Weald is a charity local to BBS’ Head Office in Lamberhurst, Kent. The charity provides support for people with terminal illnesses in the Kent and East Sussex area. No charge is made for these services which are provided on the basis of need rather than ability to pay. The Hospice relies on donations to fund their work and needs to raise over £7 million each year to provide their vital services to not only patients, but their families and carers as well.
BBS is delighted to, once again, be sponsoring the annual cycling event, Wheels Around the Weald, which this year takes place on Sunday 26th June. A team from BBS will pedal their way around the 40 or 80 mile cycle routes.
Last year the event brought together over 300 cyclists and raised more than £20,000. This year, we hope to raise even more money!

The Home Quality Mark is a rigorous and relevant standard for new homes. Developed by BRE – the UK’s leading building science centre – it helps everyone understand the quality, performance and attributes of new build homes.
Looking for a home with reduced payments and less maintenance? One that is cheaper to run, better located, and more able to cope with the demands of a changing climate?
Look for the Home Quality Mark.
Giving you peace of mind
Developed and assessed by independent experts, the Mark rates the quality, efficiency and performance of each home in ten key areas. Easy to understand and compare, the ratings remove the guess work from one of life’s most important decisions.
Meeting your needs
The Mark also considers the things that influence everyone’s quality of life: space, comfort, light, noise and access to local amenities. Ratings for each of these provide a clear and comprehensive picture that will help you find a home that really works for you.
Saving you money
The Mark brings financial benefits too. Homes receiving a high rating are cheaper to heat and power and less likely to need expensive repairs and maintenance.
How can I obtain certification under The Home Quality Mark?
BBS has independent, fully trained licenced assessors who will rate the new home based on a wide range of technical criteria. Further information for homebuilders and homebuyers is available from our Environmental team. Please contact Louise Veiga on: 01892 891280 or email: email@example.com

BBS has recently completed the Building Control on a project near St. James’ in Central London. The project was for the conversion of an existing office building, along with the construction of an additional three stories and basement. The completed project consists of 22 studio, one two and three bedroom high-end residential flats, a basement car park and a ground floor residential unit.
A great deal of thought and consideration went into the architectural detailing on the building’s façade. One of the external corners of the building has a ball-nose feature with a clock. The flats also look out onto external loggia balconies giving the building a stylish look.
Earlier this week the project won the BDA Chairman's Award : "This building exemplifies the kind of refurbishment project that we need if we are to regenerate our inner city areas in a sustainable way and create the kind of environments which people value and where they want to live."

On Wednesday the 7th October, BBS attended the Kent Construction Expo in Delting, Kent. It was a good opportunity to meet with construction experts operating in the Kent area - from contractors and developers to architects; as well as to say, "Hello" to some familiar faces that we are currently working with on projects across the Kent area. The day was also filled with various workshops and talks from experts across the industry.
