Crossrail Development at Paddington

On Friday 14th June 2013, British Study Centres students had the opportunity of a lifetime. All apprentices in Civil Engineering at Lille University, this happy few ended their time with us in a style befitting their prestigious profession. After an early start, the students arrived at London Paddington to be met by a representative from Byrne Bros. This multi-award winning business has completed projects as high profile as Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, the Shard in London and the Olympic Village for the 2012 Summer Games. The company has now taken on a leading role in Crossrail, the largest on-going civil engineering project in Europe.

Crossrail Development at Paddington

The students were first given an overview of Crossrail by three distinguished speakers, before being welcomed into the heart of the construction project in London Paddington by the Senior Site Engineer, Tom. Unperturbed by Tom’s thick Irish accent and the incessant noise of the drills being employed below, the students asked their detailed technical questions with perseverance and panache.

You can discover more for yourself about this incredible feat of engineering here. Enjoy!
