Armed Forces Week 2020

Bridgeway Consulting Ltd is proud to support Armed Forces Week 2020, here one of our Army Reservists Richard Allen shares his experience with us…

As an Army Reservist with the Royal Engineers, I consider myself to be in a unique position to share this short article with you. On a normal day with Bridgeway’s SI/GI department I could be doing a multitude of different tasks; from building PASMA towers to window sampling or even coring off pontoons on a river. As a department, our capability to change tasks seems almost boundless. It is these varying tasks that can give a reservist like myself a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills that can be exchanged with our Army counterparts and also the many other reservists with differing backgrounds. I serve with 530 Specialist Team Royal Engineers (STRE) who are the forces construction materials specialists.

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus and the ensuing lockdown measures, all training exercises for 2020 are currently postponed. However, I was fortunate enough to attend two training exercises last year thanks to the Armed Forces Covenant that Bridgeway have signed up to. One of the annual exercise’s was based at RAF Wittering (about 50 miles from Nottingham) and was mainly trade orientated with a large emphasis on runway and pavement evaluation. The usual set of intrusive SI/GI techniques were employed such as trial pitting, auger/ rotary drilling and concrete coring.

In addition to what Bridgeway’s SI/GI department do on an almost weekly basis, we also had the equipment and experienced personnel to conduct non-intrusive tests for the pavement evaluation.

These tests were “Heavy Weight Deflectometer (HWD)” for flexural strength and a “Mµ meter” for wet and dry friction testing of the runway surface (it helps if the planes don’t run away off the runway). Getting up to and maintaining 60kph in a Landrover Defender whilst towing 1000L of water proved to be somewhat troublesome, but fun.

During the intrusive investigations we would log the samples on site (using the same British Standards as Bridgeway) and create a testing schedule appropriately defined by the nature of the task.

Once we had finished making Swiss cheese out the RAF airfield, all samples were booked into a mobile sample store and testing conducted on those from the schedule.

Hopefully, next year will prove to be a little more virus free and maybe we can swap Wittering for Wuhan … erm okay maybe not, probably Wolverhampton knowing my luck.

 

We are delighted to announce that Bridgeway Consulting Limited has been awarded The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise: Sustainable Development 2017.

Revealed on the occasion of Her Majesty’s official birthday, the honour is one of just a few hundred awards given annually to businesses in the UK and is retained by the companies for five years.

Winners are entitled to display the award emblem and will receive a trophy as well as attending a Reception with the Queen.

In 2017 only 176 Awards have been given and Bridgeway is the only business in the East Midlands to win an Award for Sustainable Development.

Managing Director Pino De Rosa said, “We are so proud. To be recognised as leaders in our field demonstrating that our values and actions are truly sustainable is a great honour. It is testimony to the commitment and hard work of our Management Team and Staff, as well as the on-going support of our loyal contractors, suppliers and clients.”

The award submission outlined the management approach responsible for delivering sustainability entitled “Supplying a safe, sustainable management approach to the maintenance and renewal of the UK’s transport infrastructure.”

The press book noted that: “The application stood out due to the company's ongoing commitment to improving best practice and their use of new technology innovation which currently sets them apart from their peers.”

What began in 2014 with the Leadership team driving new programmes including a sustainable relocation to a new Head Office in Nottingham, developed into a dedicated strategy across five key work streams:

  • Building / Business Efficiencies
  • Community Interaction
  • Technology Making Our Service Deliverables More Sustainable
  • Staff Recruitment/Development
  • Staff Wellbeing

Pino added, “We have been implementing the plan since Summer 2014 and not only has it delivered sustainable changes to our everyday business, but also contributed to sustaining our financial growth, retaining our Client base and all still operating with safety at our core.”
