Three favourite projects and why?
Tender design for Network Rail’s Control Period 5 (CP5) Framework
I was involved in tender design of the ramps and tunnel at Farnworth Station in BIM. It was very pleasing that the outcome was so well received by the client.
Western Outer Track Infrastructure
The challenge presented to me and my team was to rebuild two existing bridges where the 2D drawings were composed from the 3D Model. I had an opportunity to perform different roles on the project enhancing both my technical and my management skills
Great Western Route Modernization
Being part of the modernization of this iconic railway was a great experience. It involved 3D modelling several bridges along the route as well as generating drawings from the 3D model. The experience has exposed me to new design, drawing techniques, standards and procedures.
