Bondholder Idom Merebrook has been included in the New Civil Engineer's (NCEs) Top 100 Engineering Firms.
The NCE 100 Awards recognise outstanding civil engineering companies, based on their achievements in five specific areas thought critical to making the engineering industry a great environment in which to work. The judging criteria included technical excellence, exploiting technology, worldview, driving equality and developing engineers of the future.
Idom Merebrook has an extensive portfolio of technical excellence, illustrated by numerous high profile projects including: the Guggenheim Bilbao, Heathrow Terminal 2A, Crossrail, the London Olympic Velodrome, Dublin Airport, ITER nuclear fusion facility in France and closer to home, Bondholder Derby Arena.
Nigel Huish, Managing Director, said: "The Top 100 is not about numbers or profits, but is based on an in-depth company survey on employee satisfaction. For us this is really useful as it benchmarks us against our peers and gives an indication of how and where to improve."
He continued: "I am delighted to say that our commitment to developing new technology, fostering new engineering talent and driving equality is now reaping rewards. In our environmental engineering team 50% of our senior engineers are female, and 2 out of the 8 people on our management team are women."
Idom Merebrook is also involved in the Derbyshire Enterprise for Education (E4E) scheme, a joint public-private sector partnership that aims to link employers with schools and students, in a bid to create a better understanding of career opportunities and improve employability skills.
