University of Nottingham Lecture

On Monday the 11th of March 2019 Bridgeway Consulting Ltd BIM Manager, Simon Hatch, spoke to The University of Nottingham Civil Engineering 3rd year students. Simon's talk was focused on the principals of BIM/Digital Engineering in the Civil Engineering sector and how it's growing everyday!

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!

HS2 Roundtable

On Thursday the 7th of February 2019 Bridgeway Consulting Ltd hosted a HS2 Roundtable event at our Headquarters in Nottingham. The event proved to be a huge success with the HS2 Minister, HS2 Chairman, multiple MP's and numerous other dignataries in attendance.

The morning was full of constructive discussions and we welcomed the opportunity to share our views on such an important infrastructure project.

HS2 is a once in a lifetime project that will transform opportunities for the people of the midlands and the north and we're proud to be working on it. So far the project has enabled us to create a number of job and training opportunities within our organisation and going forward will give us the confidence to invest in people, equipment, and technology. HS2 will benefit businesses and communities across many sectors and will have a positive impact on the wider Midlands Engine and Northern Power House workforce.

ERS Award

On the evening of 15th November our Managing Director, Pino De Rosa, and Site Investigation Director, Mark Lindahl, attended the East Midlands Employer Recognition Scheme awards presentation to receive the prestigious Silver ERS Award. This Award is in recognition of the business’s support for service personnel, ex- service personnel and supporting current employees in their reservist service. A total of 30 companies from the East Midlands gained this level of award this year from a long list off applicants and this was the culmination of a lot of work on the bid by our HR Director, Lisa Brackner, and supported by Mark.

Bridgeway will be submitting an application for the Gold Level Award in the New Year, proving on-going commitment to our Armed forces. The photo above shows Pino and Mark picking up the award.

Mosely Tunnel

This morning Bridgeway Consulting Ltd's (BCL) Site Investigation Trainer and Assessor, John Matheson, was out on site at Mosley Tunnel acting as a Safe Work Leader for Chris Grayling, Secretary of State for Transport.

Mott MacDonald commissioned BCL for the ground Investigation works to inform their design at three proposed new railway station locations; Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell in Birmingham.
The intrusive ground investigation works are to provide geotechnical information of the adjacent cutting slopes for the lift shaft and access stair/ramp foundation designs. The works will also ascertain the presence and geometry of former platforms, signal boxes, retaining walls and overbridge foundations at each site.

BCL are a Network Rail principal contractor and are specialists in the front end information gathering for early GRIP stage projects, which when combined with 25 years of Possession and Access Management means we are often imitated but never recreated.
