Bake Sale – September 2019
What batter way to cake-start the week than with a charity bake sale?
This week our engineers set aside their concrete mixes and picked up the cake mix to raise money for Camden Giving (https://www.camdengiving.org.uk/) – an amazing local charity which provides support for food banks, winter night shelters and clubs for vulnerable young people.

“Grab-A-Grad” at – Brunel University London
One of our team, Diego de Armas, travelled to Brunel University yesterday to speak to undergraduate and masters students about construction projects, chartership, engineering job applications, office culture, work-life balance, making a strong first impression, personal experiences at consultancies of different sizes, and experiences in both the Transportation and Buildings sectors.
It was great to see such a good turnout and plenty of enthusiasm from the Brunel students. Congratulations to ICE London Graduates and Students and Brunel CivSoc Student Society on the organisation of this successful event!
Current progress at Pier House, W4 – February 2019
Great weather for a site visit to Pier House by Kew Bridge! Reconstruction and extension of this building following the 2016 fire is now taking shape with the steel frame nearing completion.
Great to see this building being brought back to life on the edge of the Kew Gardens UNESCO World Heritage zone.
Pleased to be working with EPR Architects (to planning), Gibberd Ltd (site) with Thomas Sinden as contractor.
