He has proven himself on the iconic Humber, Forth and Severn suspension bridge projects and is all set to go abroad to do some state-of-the-art digital work. It’s hard to believe he’s still a graduate and one who has only been with us for 2 years.
In this Blog Series we’re showcasing and celebrating the work our Graduates are doing on projects.
