"Rob Ward proved to be an absolute key consultant for this project. His input was vital not only in direct liaison with the Environment Agency, but also in helping us understand in a very clear way the realities and potential mitigation for a project specific approach to flood risk. We would welcome any future project consultancy with AWP and highly recommend their services."

There must be something in the water at AWP Towers! Both Alex and Graham recently announced that their wives are expecting. This will be the first child for Alex and Lauretta and the second for Graham and Sarah. Congratulations and best wishes to both the Wozniczkos and the Mays!

We celebrated 6 months of trading with a night out at the recently opened Cosy Club in Southernhay (that's the photo on the About us page). We liked it so much we've booked up to go back for our team Christmas meal.

The sporting highlight of the month was inaugural AWP karting championship which we held at Raceworld on 15 May (edited highlights below). After practice and qualifying sessions the final race was started with the slowest qualifiers at the front and the fastest at the back. The two undoubted stars of the evening starting in 10th and 11th place and driving through the whole field to come 1st and 2nd were Ryan and Chris, with Ryan holding on to win the coveted AWP Cup. However, nobody was happier than Graham for managing to beat Hux into 8th! We're thinking of sending Gavin (from Wavin) on a driver training course as part of his CPD . . .

Graham recently passed his Institution of Civil Engineers' Engineering Technician exams. He's now got EngTech TMICE after his name, and too many mentions in this month's news.

Rob has been invited by the Institution of Civil Engineers (SW) to be a judge for the 2013 Project Awards.

And after too many excuses (fee earning work getting in the way), we finally got our website up and running.
