Competition Winner Announced at 2019 Campaign Launch Event


The James Legal Inspiring Business 2019 campaign to support SMEs across the region enjoyed an absolutely cracking start with the announcement of our 2018 competition winner at a seminar that was bursting at the seams with inspiration.

On March 7th, 80 attendees gathered at the Hallmark Hotel in North Ferriby to witness pioneering Hull company BIMsense be crowned the winner of our Inspiring Business 2018 competition.

Choosing a winner from the Inspiring Business 2018 shortlist proved a real challenge for the judging panel. The 12 finalists comprised: BIMsense; Larkin Group Ltd; Tenn Group; Socialise and Mingle; Deli No 1; Brown Sugar Lounge and Studio; SBR Refurbishments Ltd; Matt Vinyl Graphics; Keystone MIS; NAVigo Health and Social Care CIC; Fusion Laser Cutting; and All About You – Hypnotherapy.

BIMsense Ltd was chosen as the deserving recipient of an amazing package of business support worth £25,000 to help them in their continued development journey. BIMsense was formed in 2016 by a chartered engineer and a bricklayer with more than 40 years of experience between them who had a burning desire to change the way buildings are designed, built and managed using a revolutionary new process of ‘building information modelling’ (BIM) digital solutions.

Exciting times ahead

Co-founders Scott Pilgrim and Ian Yeo have come a long way in the past two years. Scott said: “We’re really thrilled to be chosen as winners, it’s an amazing prize. I suppose we were quietly confident as we have picked up quite a few awards but it was still a massive surprise!

“This has come at a really good time for us. The market has exploded in the past few months and we will need to grow fast this year. Our business development will require a lot of support so every element of the prize will be incredibly useful. We’re very much looking forward to working with all the partners.”

Nick Miller, Solicitor and Managing Director of James Legal, said: “It was a tough decision to make as all the finalists are so impressive in their own ways, but BIMsense are an absolutely deserving winner and we are very much looking forward to working with them over the coming year.”
