IStructE Regional Rep

In the autumn of 2016 David Girling from our Oxford Office was successfully elected as Graduate Representative onto the Thames Valley Regional Group Committee for the Institution of Structural Engineers for the 2017 session.  He is looking forward to getting involved in the Regional Group activities, meeting engineers from across the region and hopefully building closer ties between AKS Ward and the Institution.

Recruiting the Engineers of Tomorrow

In conjunction with the Thames Valley Regional Group of the IStructE, David and Freya from our Oxford office manned the stall for the afternoon session at the Slough Aspire Careers Event on 2nd February held at the Refresh Skills Centre in Slough.  The event was aim at Year 9 (13 year old) students from schools and academies across Slough.

Overall it was a successful day extolling the benefits of a career in structural engineering.  Several of the schools AKS Ward have worked on were present which went down well when they saw the project page for their school.  We had a number of good conversations with several interested students, and have hopefully helped steer some of them towards a career in structural engineering.

Romford Leisure Centre Nearing Completion

Our Engineer, Alex Parry, has attended site to monitor progress on the eagerly anticipated Romford Leisure Centre site. The superstructure supporting the ice rink is nearing completion, and the pool excavation has begun.

The new multi-use four-storey leisure centre for Havering Council will provide state of the art facilities; a 25m eight-lane swimming pool with movable floor, learner pool, suspended ice rink with approximately 800 spectator seats, gymnasium, and cafe. The design posed interesting challenges. Ensuring the structure was robust enough to support the elevated ice rink (located above the main swimming pool) and working with specialists to determine all the details for temperature and vapour control between the extremely different environments required, was a real buzz.

A particular design challenge overcome by the design team involved construction of the new centre on the footprint of an existing building with piled foundations.

The project has recently been featured in New Steel Construction Magazine
