A Day in the life of....
This month we are finding out about Iman, our Senior Engineer, who is currently working in our busy Guildford office. Let's see what her day is like:
Job title: Senior Design Engineer, Milestone Transport Planning Ltd.
What are you responsible for? My primary responsibility is to undertake and produce the design for highway schemes on public and privately owned land to achieve technical approval as part of the Section 278 process. I produce technical drawings to the design of roundabouts, minor and major junctions and various other types of highway projects.
Where based? MTP Guildford Office, Surrey
Transport to work? I park my car about a mile away from the office and then walk to the office.
Top of ‘In’-tray? I am undertaking the design of the internal highway design of a new big development that include the design of 4 roundabouts, dual carriageway, single lane dualling junction and a signalized junction.
Best aspects of job? Since starting here at Milestone Transport Planning, I have really enjoyed the various schemes we have on all over the country, from roundabout designs and major junctions on trunk roads, to smaller private accesses for proposed developments. Each and every job is unique in its own way which makes it very interesting.
Challenges? There is always something new that you need to learn with every job as every job is different and unique which can be quite challenging in itself.
How do you relax? I spend a lot of time with my family and friends, I do enjoy going on holidays, walking and gardening.
What are your Ambitions? My ambition is to progress further in my role, never stop learning and to overcome every challenge that I come across.
Thanks Iman. It's a great idea to park and then walk into work - it makes for some healthy exercise and frees up parking space for others - thanks again!
