I thought Ellen Bennett of Utility Week did a great job of stimulating the debate and to have Matt Crabtree, Costain Director of Water and Colin Reynell, Costain Operations Director, also debating the issues highlights how much intellectual horsepower Costain is applying to help our customers develop right first time solutions.
Matt Crabtree, Costainâ€™s Sector Director for Water, added: â€œWe have had some positiveÂ feedback from Welsh Water recently regards our fantastic safety record and it is great to see the success of John and his team reflected at these awardsâ€.
Matt, a Development Director in the Water Sector, embarked on the so called â€˜Fozball Rallyâ€™ on June 1st with fellow cyclists Mark Foskett (Foz) and Peter Baker, and supported along the way by Steve Cherry in a support vehicle. â€œWe wanted to do something that was going to be a challenge but also fun to do, and we wanted to do something for Great Ormond Street Hospital Childrenâ€™s Charity because of the great work they do for children,â€ said Matt. Commenting on Matt and the teamâ€™s achievement, Sarah Canniford of Great Ormond Street Hospital, said: â€œMatt, Mark, Peter and Steve have completed an amazing challenge in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Childrenâ€™s Charity and we are so grateful for all their hard work and dedication.
The dedication and teamwork from all concerned was first class and averted a potentially serious supply issue,â€ said Matt Crabtree, Costainâ€™s Water Sector Director.
The cycling event takes place in Belgium on 31st March.Â The team will ride the programmed route as the pros will do the day after.Â There are steep climbs and cobblestones which the team will have to overcome on the 90 mile ride.Â The team consists of Graham Sugrue, Phil Ebner (Costain Graduate Mechanical Engineer), Matt Crabtree (Customer Director), Paul Hutton (Graduate Civil Engineer), Mick Lippard (Sales Manager, Speedy Hire), Warren Mitchell (Senior General Foreman) and Aalok Sonawala (Business System Manager) and they aim to complete the ride in seven hours.
"There are lots of people who we've identified as members of this MEICA community," says Matt Crabtree, Sector Director for Water.
"These three guys are role models for the rest of the community," says Crabtree. Many of those who could potentially achieve chartered status are in mid-career and for various reasons have not gone down this route earlier in their working lives. Some years further down their career path they have realised they need to improve their qualifications. "I became a chartered engineer quite late in my career," acknowledges Crabtree, "but it's a vital qualification for a senior role". Costain's professional development team will provide support for anyone seeking to embark on the process, he adds.
Matt Crabtree, Sector Director for Water explains: "In water it stems from our success in winning a series of contracts with water utilities for the fifth of the sector's Asset Management Programmes (AMP 5).
"A lot of its current members are manufacturers and it is keen to get a representation from infrastructure providers on the panel," explains Crabtree.
