The Civil Engineers' Club
Institution of Civil Engineers

Northern Ireland

Jim Workman is the Civil Engineers’ Club representative in Northern Ireland.  He has re-started the group and has organised a number of visits to date.

The most recent visit was to the Victoria Terminal 2 (VT2) in Belfast Docks on Friday 4 October 2019. Philip Brown, Graham Construction very kindly made the arrangements to have a briefing and site tour of this £15m project.

The terminal is being upgraded to handle the next generation of modern Ro-Ro ferry vessels. The infrastructure will accommodate the berthing of Stena Line’s new E-Flexer ships which are expected to arrive from China in 2020.

Lunch was provided in the Site Offices courtesy of Graham Construction.

Phillip Brown of Grahams (who was a very supportive link with the Local Association this past year) was accompanied by Tommy Craven, Contracts Manager and the Site Manager Ryan Hill. Ryan briefed the party of 26 (members and their guests) before taking the party on a tour of the very busy site. Our present Chairman John Glass found time to join the visit which was appreciated by all.
