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.

QEM were asked to manage and chair the HAZCON studies for the Forty Hill & Lux Lane Diversion Project.

The meeting aims to identify and mitigate hazards in the design, construction, operation of the work. All topics were covered and any actions were taken away to be completed, this will need to be agreed by the group before the study can be concluded.
