Meet Tara Siemens Kennedy, Senior Project Specialist and Environmental Toxicologist, Environment, from SNC-Lavalin’s Burnaby office. She spends her spare time enjoying the great outdoors with her two kids, and her work time making sure our environment is protected.
Jerel Rackley is a Transportation Engineer who, since graduating from Texas A&M University in 2002, has spent his career serving agencies in the design and oversight of roadway projects. He has been at Atkins since August of 2011 and is a recent graduate of the Building People Leaders program. He took some time to share his experiences about the Mentoring Program.
Daniel Robinson and Greg Bannatyne discussing their experiences on the graduate programme, having now completed their 3rd and final year of the graduate scheme. Both Daniel and Greg have a background of qualifications in aerospace and have been working in our Mechanical Engineering team within Aerospace, Defence, Security & Technology business (ADS&T). Questions asked by James Domone.
Gillian is a senior engineer in our offshore wind business, is based at the Bristol office, and has been with Atkins for 10 years when she joined in the nuclear decommissioning team.
Her work is currently focused on the asset integrity of offshore windfarms, which she says is important as we’re making it easier and hopefully cheaper to run the wind farms once they’ve been installed and generating electricity, in turn helping drive down the cost of wind energy generally.
Pete first joined Atkins on a summer placement after studying Civil Engineering at University – staying for just long-enough to fund a few months travelling before starting work for good. On his return he joined the Bristol Transport Planning team as a graduate and has stayed with the team ever since. He now manages projects and provides technical leadership within the team.
Watch how Jonathan Bonas, who joined Atkins in 2018 went on to work with multi-disciplinary teams to provide support to the development of Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) applications in the West of England and Swindon.
During the last 7 years at Atkins, digital transformation has been the main focus for Lasse Jensen. He has played a key role in the 3D modelling work for the newly-opened 60 km high-speed railway between Copenhagen – Ringsted in Denmark.
At work and in life, Chris Johnson is all about new frontiers. The opportunity to influence an emerging engineering discipline, combined with the important purpose of protecting critical national infrastructure (railways, aviation, nuclear and other energy services), is why he sold his house in the UK and moved to Montreal in September 2018.
Jonathan Gouin started out in finance. He also spent many hours on various renovation projects with friends and family, always thriving on learning new skills. Although he had a B.Comm degree and a job to go with it, Jonathan’s love of the transformative process of moving an idea from a piece of paper to a tangible and creative result quickly won out.
I’m David Boland, project controls manager at SNC-Lavalin. Although I’m based in Perth, Australia, my work impacts many of the business processes in Asia Pacific. I work in construction and my main objective is to ensure that projects are completed on time and stay within budget. I’m responsible for all aspects of project scheduling, planning, and cost estimation. It’s my job to remove blockers to getting things done.
I’m Tiffany Chan, Associate Director for Tunnels and Ground Engineering at the Hong Kong office. My role is technical leader and project management for tunnel projects, mainly in design and build. I lead a consultant design team to find the best solutions when it comes to building tunnels for rail, roads and utilities. My role involves technical calculations, as well as coordination between clients, contractors, and different design teams.
