Inspiring Students at Gade

A group of 50 students from the local college recently visited our Gade Valley Project to get a taste of the many varied aspects of a Civil Engineering scheme.

The budding young engineers were split into teams to undertake a tour of the operational site, understand the project use of BIM and to undertake a bridge building challenge.

The whole team, including our suppliers were actively involved in the visit and the accompanying teachers were genuinely impressed with the level of time and information that was shared with the students.

The students were equally complimentary, commenting that they were surprised how complex the site is and enjoyed learning about the different bridge elements and looking at the BIM software in detail.

Thank you to our team for hosting this highly successful event with the local community. Such visits are so important for inspiring and attracting our engineers of the future into our industry.
