Dubai - Hi, my name is Jan Selepa and I recently went on a Quest exchange from Prague to Dubai – let me share a few lines about my experiences in this blog.
"This is probably the greatest eye opening opportunity you can experience with Arcadis!"
I applied for my Quest to deepen my knowledge of high-rise structures and to gain experience as a project manager during a construction phase of major projects as well as to gain valuable and professional contacts in the Middle East region. I chose Dubai because I thought it would be interesting to experience the on-going residential development, which is famous world wide due to its fast pace and due to the unique super structures, which are being built in the area.
The local international team was very helpful and opened to mutual cooperation, allowing me to join the construction site visits of 5 different projects of high-rise buildings. Each building was in a different state of the construction phase thus I had the opportunity to witness the complete construction process in general. I was allowed to attend different meetings and to discuss the project specifications with senior experts from different parts of the world - such as Egypt, Jordan, Brazil, England, Ireland, India and some others. Such multinational cooperation is something that everyone should experience at least one time per his/her career.
I learned about the processes for the project delivery and about the key stones in logistics of major projects, including how Health and Safety policies are being applied. If you consider to join the Quest like me, you should know exactly what you want to learn, what do you want to share with others and most importantly you should be open to new things. With such setup you will experience something that you will never forget. All in all, the Quest program is a great opportunity to explore all what Arcadis has to offer either to the clients or to its employees. Moreover it is great fun!
Quest is an international transfer program which connects Arcadians from all over the world. Quest is sponsored by the Lovinklaan Foundation.
