Cancer fights dirty – so do these guys !
Congratulations to Operations Director Daniel Nugent, who together with a tough team took part in Tough Mudder last Saturday in Henley.
Other team members were Danielle Walker, Tom Alexander, Paul Whitfield, Katy Jones, Hayley Smith, Jodie Waddington and Giula Waddington.
The team put their all into the challenge and every team member finished.
They took on the 12mile run with ease and beat each and every assault coarse challenge that was thrown at them – although the ice skips were not a favourite !!!
The team were raising funds for Pilgrims Hospice after Jodie and Giula lost their dad Ian at Christmas. Their story can be read on the teams justgiving page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Jodie-Waddington2?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=fundraisingpage&utm_content=Jodie-Waddington2&utm_campaign=pfp-share they have by far exceeded their fundraising target and anyone wishing to donate can still do so.
Hats off to an amazing group of people!!
Amidst strong competition Concorr have been awarded a 2nd contract over a 1 year period to carry out structural appraisals and condition surveys to over 42 no multi-storey car parks across England, Ireland, Scotland & Wales.

Managing Director, Michael Nugent has this week been in Rome at meetings and presentations as part of his involvement with The United Nations UNESCO Technical Team.
This is the latest of a series of meetings of the Technical Committee whose remit is to evaluate the effects of both natural and conflict disasters on buildings (hospitals etc) and infrastructure in predominantly third World Countries, but now evolving to other regions such as the Middle East and Europe.
A visit was also made to the remote regions, 90 miles from Rome to view the ongoing rebuild of the regions affected by the 2016 earthquake.
Some 2,000 people were displaced at the time of the earthquake and over 290 sadly lost their lives.
Italy’s earthquake institute, INGV, a world leader in seismic events said the focus of the earthquake was at Accumoli and Amatrice.
Much was learned from the visit and discussions, which will assist in the groups work over the coming 3 years, whose ultimate and simple goal is to evaluate, educate and saves lives in the future.
Concorr Rail Consultancy Division teams attended a Network Rail Bridge in South West London on a night closure between 1am and 5am last Thursday.
The soffit of this road over rail bridge had received many repairs over the years, all of which are now failing and spalling.
Our technical team were engaged to carry out an inspection and to compile recommended technical correct repair strategies.
Our team of roped access technicians carrying out the investigative, diagnostic and make-safe survey to the façade elevations of the World Trade Centre, Dubai are enjoying clear blue sky, no winds and temperatures in the early 30’s – much like our teams are experiencing in the UK!!
Works are progressing well and the teams are enjoying accessing this iconic Dubai skyline building.
Congratulations to Anthony Sinden – Graduate Engineer with the Company’s Civil Engineering Consultancy Division.
Anthony attended the external independent IRATA training course last week and qualified a Level 1 Roped Access Technician
