ISG welcomes the University of Innsbruck to its Millennium Bridge House project
Led by preconstruction lead Toby Reynolds, project director Brian Corridan and construction manager Magda Miazga-Banham, the students were welcomed to our Millennium Bridge House project, which is situated just off the River Thames in the centre of London, and embarked on a tour of the site. With a keen focus on civil and structural engineering, and an interest in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and construction in the UK, for the students there was a particular focus on the difference in rules and regulations between the UK and Austria / Germany, and also areas of innovation.
Following on from the tour, the students made their way back to ISG's Aldgate House headquarters to meet with people from various other job functions within the business, including our early careers teams, and to find out how ISG supports multinational employees and how the students could seek employment in the UK. With their studies approaching the end, the students were keen to understand what ISG’s graduate programme looks like, how they can put their studies to use, and what challenges there are in the construction industry.
Dialogue among preconstruction lead for UK Construction, Toby Reynolds, and Peter Franklin and Michael Dobersberger of Advantage Austria, led to the visit for the students from the University of Innsbruck, Austria, who were on a learning study week in the UK’s capital city.
Toby said of the visit: “This has been a very positive opportunity and experience for everyone involved. It has given the University of Innsbruck students the chance to view construction in progress, and learn how that relates to their studies currently and what they can do once their studies finish.
"It was interesting to hear their stories and future plans. While some are interested in construction here, there is also equal interest in our business in Germany and central Europe."
