University of Nottingham Civil Engineering Society Visit

On Wednesday the 10th of April 2019 Bridgeway Consulting Ltd hosted the University of Nottingham Civil Engineering Society for the afternoon.

The visit started with a half hour introduction from our SI Director, Mark Lindahl, and Geomatics and Examinations Director, Richard Cooper. Followed then by three practical demonstrations with Engineers on hand to answer questions.

The feedback below was received following the visit - it's always nice to know we're having an impact with local universities and hopefully inspiring the next generation to get involved with Engineering!

'Hi Tom,

Thank you so much for organising the visit, it was an extremely valuable and insightful experience for all of us! It was very smoothly run, and from a personal perspective, it was amazing to be able to have demonstrations where we could ask questions throughout; sometimes, passionate engineers can have long talks which leave students overwhelmed but the environment was such that this was in no way a problem. Many of the people, myself included, have not seen much (if any) of the equipment you showed, in real life, or spoke to people who so frequently use it. Once again, we can't thank you enough for organising it, the passion of your employees made it thoroughly enjoyable!

Kindest Regards,
Tim'

St John's Ambulance

Earlier this week a member of the Bridgeway Consulting Ltd Possession Management team in the South West, Mike Kehoe, gave a safety speech for St John's Ambulance Badgers (aged 7-10) and Cadets (aged 10-17).

Mike had been made aware by the Leader of the group that there had been reports of youths in this age group playing on the railways tracks in the Nailsea and Backwell areas. Upon hearing this information Mike focused his speech around the dangers of playing on track and the knock on affect this could have on their family, the train driver and the emergency services.

It's great to see members of the Bridgeway Consulting Ltd team giving something back to the community and helping to improve awareness of the potential dangers of the Railway. Well done Mike!
