ALE Sharing Heavylift Experience with the Future Engineers
ALE has shared their extensive experience of civil engineering projects during a special lecture to future civil engineers at the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham, UK.
Javier Martinez Gutierrez, Executive Director, was invited to give a master class on the ‘Smart and Innovative Heavylifting Constructability Solutions for the Civil Engineering Market’. Speaking to students of the college, Javier shared new construction methodologies for bridges and other large structures, providing examples of the variety of ALE projects that have been carried out for the rail industry in numerous countries.
“Civil engineering opens a diverse range of careers for young people. ALE is always seeking innovative solutions to the challenges of this constantly-evolving sector, where clients are often looking for a swift solution that minimises disruption. We hope to see exciting new ideas coming from the engineers of the future, so it’s an honour to be asked to share the expertise ALE has developed so far and hopefully the college’s students have found it inspirational.”
The National College for High Speed Rail opened in 2017 with facilities in both Birmingham and Doncaster and is the first college of its kind in the UK, offering courses and apprenticeships in all elements of high-speed rail, and the broader rail and infrastructure industry.
