ABOUT US

About BCS

BCS was initially formed by The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Wokingham Borough Council in 2015. The partnership was founded on a shared desire to strengthen and develop the already impressive services of each individual authority.
In July 2016, West Berkshire joined the partnership as we continued to tackle the challenges faced by public sector building control services head on and seize the vast opportunities available to us.
