Involved With a Wide Community

In line with the Group’s Equality and Diversity commitment, members of Swanton Consulting took part in Charter School’s celebration of International Women’s Day. The School situated in Southwark, welcomed Hoi Yan Chow and Vanessa Quansah in an aim to raise awareness of structural engineering; inspiring others to follow them into the construction industry. The event demonstrates Erith’s subsidiary Swanton Consulting’s commitment in community development; whilst in the same breath help promote equality and inclusion.

As part of Swanton’s outreach programme to engage with new start businesses, they commissioned Bristol-based illustration business ‘Lizstration’ to produce a series of sketches of Kingsgate House during construction. Swanton are delighted with the final product which can be viewed by clicking here.

Swanton’s engagement with the tertiary education community continues to develop with the following implementations:

  • Three current members of staff: Glenn Wicken, Alex Murray and David Lohmann are engaging with higher education including a postgraduate, a HND and an apprenticeship.
  • Further to an established bursary link with the Soil Mechanics department at Imperial College London, Swanton are pleased to confirm the award of a first sponsorship within the department of Civil Engineering at University College London. In addition, also agreeing to contribute to teaching within the department and look forward to introducing a practical perspective.
