Whether this year has flown by for you or really dragged, there’s no denying that it’s been a memorable one. The team of geotechnical specialists here at Condor Projects are very grateful for all of the projects we’ve been hired to deliver across the UK, all of which prove that engineering never stops!
During 2020 we continued to work on a huge range of sites, helping landowners, local authorities, highway departments and commercial developers to upgrade and protect their land. Sometimes this was by putting in place a physical infrastructure for further development, whereas on other occasions it was improving the reliability of the land through advanced ground stabilisation.
We love the variety of jobs that we work on, as it enables us to continuously improve and enhance our service offering. Whether a project is relatively small or it’s the largest we’ve ever seen, our engineers apply their signature dedication and keen eye for detail as standard.
Respecting the new measures
Despite working outdoors, we still had to ensure that all of our staff followed the new guidelines to a tee. This includes wearing masks and other PPE where required, socially distancing from our customers when on site, and adhering to all other measures without fail. Meanwhile, our office staff either worked from home or remained in our COVID-compliant offices, with every employee across the company demonstrating unwavering commitment to the protection of everyone’s health and wellbeing.
The role of engineers
Back in June, an article on the Institution of Chemical Engineers website highlighted four ways the engineering sector should respond to the pandemic both now and on a long-term basis. We couldn’t agree more with their points, which were listed as collaboration, the need for speed, home working, and a new focus on pivoting production to suit the technological needs of society.
As a business, we pride ourselves on keeping a finger on the pulse of our ever-changing sector and innovating as much as possible to benefit the wider industry. We collaborate wherever possible and maintain open communications with all parties involved, guaranteeing that each project is completed quickly, efficiently, safely and to the highest standard.
Engineering is a fascinating industry that changes the world for the better, with our team members here at Condor Projects playing their part on a daily basis.
