Quotes

"Spreading the culture of innovation has made a big difference to the project, not least in bringing the supply chain together. The importance of involving the supply chain cannot be stressed enough because the results have been fantastic. At Paddington we've generated over 40 innovative ideas from our meetings" said Vick Thevendran, the Project Director
"As the emphasis moves towards asset management, it is critical that asset owning operating businesses focus on the value that assets deliver and not just the management of information. The model we have developed creates a framework to ensure that asset decisions are always made within the context of the value that they deliver, which provides a route map to asset intelligence" said Ross
Indy said: "We rotated them around the various disciplines, such as quantity surveying, civil engineering and planning. During their visit to Crossrail headquarters at Canary Wharf , they were given a project to design a city metro railway line on a fictitious city map and present their reasoning for their design and decisions. 'They then came back to Paddington for classroom-based training. We gave them hints and tips on how to write CVs, while an external consultant gave them help with core employability skills.'"
"Whether it is a complex software modelling task or a requirement to deliver a rendered model at a moment's notice, Matt eagerly accepts the challenge and sees it through" said Derek
