My name is Imogen and I’m about to start my second year at the University of Bristol studying Civil Engineering. I have a very full university timetable with plenty of contact hours, but when I’m not working, I spend my time dancing or socializing.
SNC-Lavalin is pleased to announce that it has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract from NEXA Resources for the Aripuanã polymetallic project in the state of Mato Grosso, in the Central-West of Brazil.
Currently Las Bambas is in operation, exploiting mineral resources from Ferrobamba deposit. The mine life has been projected until 2033.
Las Bambas has performed two translocations of Liolaemus sp. gr. Montanus, the first one in December 2017 and the second one in July 2018. These translocations require periodic monitoring to follow the progress of the liberated population and their offspring, generations' duration and population viability in the receiving site

Sustainability, green buildings, net zero – over the last decade we’ve seen these terms turn from buzz words to business imperatives. Climate change is an issue we’re all aware of in the engineering industry and something most of us believe we can make a real difference to. Now is the time for us all to be thinking seriously about how we make more of an impact on the sustainability agenda.
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.
Earlier this summer, 200 graduates from across our UK businesses came together for a two-day development event at The University of Warwick which marked the completion of the three-year programme for those who joined us in 2016.
Spatial planning has a major influence on traffic movement and growth on the Strategic Road Network (SRN).
