News Spotlight Chat in Microsoft Teams: The unexpected joy of courtesy

Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, once wrote ‘courtesy is a small act, but it packs a mighty wallop’. His words are oddly applicable to the online, locked-down world in which we currently live. Right now, without all the added communication that comes from face-to-face contact, simple courtesy is crucial to getting through the working day happily, with your colleagues on-side. Here, we’ll take Carroll’s maxim and apply it to how we use ‘chat’ in Microsoft Teams.

Our Projects

Combined, we have over 50 years experience, gained on a variety of projects throughout the world. But no two engineering projects are alike.

Sometimes we manage a project from the very start and continue to be involved until the end reports. Other times we are brought in to provide specialist services in specific areas. Each brings different challenges. Each has different outcomes.

We would like to share just a few of these projects here.
