Last week, 20 team members from our graduate and undergraduate programmes attended Constructionarium – a week-long learning experience based at the CITB National Construction College in Bircham Newton, Norfolk.
They were tasked with delivering small-scale replicas of two of the UK’s most iconic bridges – the Kingsgate Bridge in Durham and the Brewery Wharf Footbridge in Leeds. Each bridge had to be built within a tight timeframe and to a high level of quality.
Despite the wind and rain, our two teams worked together to successfully plan their approach, pour the concrete and raise the bridges over water. George Assimakopolous, Director – Europe, and Michael Venus, HR Director, visited the site to inspect the final builds and congratulate the teams on their success.
We would like to thank our 2019 graduates for all their efforts over the past week. Keep up the great work!

Multiplex Positive Impact report highlights vision of higher sustainability performance in construction
Today Multiplex published its 2018 Positive Impact report, highlighting the ways in which it is responding to key global environmental, health and welfare concerns.
The report covers Multiplex’s European operations, which in 2018 employed 920 people across 19 projects and accounted for a supply chain spend of £800 million. It details Multiplex’s progress and achievements over the last 12 months in the context of its core business principle, Positive Impact, which was also launched in 2018. This marks a shift in focus from harm reduction to the ‘net positive’ concept of creating positive impacts – for people, the environment and the communities where they operate.
Dr Eva Gkenakou, Sustainability Director at Multiplex, said: “Positive Impact reflects the sense of purpose throughout Multiplex to focus on areas where we can make the greatest impacts. We are responsible for some of the largest, most complex and advanced structures in the world, so we understand the need for greater engagement across stakeholder groups and are ambitious to lead on science-based, evidence-backed, cultural and behavioural change.”
The Positive Impact report breaks down how Multiplex is working to address macro challenges and the different forces shaping the world today.
