Name and role
Bradley Doran, Highway Engineer
When did you join Waterman Aspen?
1st August 2023
What does a typical day look like in your role or secondment?
My role in my secondment at Amey involves developing the design stage of road structural maintenance schemes on the Scottish Trunk Road network. This typically involves producing pavement and road marking drawings, writing the specification, drafting a bill of quantities, and preparing the pre-construction information pack.
What training or education have you received at Waterman Aspen?
I’ve only been here for 6 weeks, but I have already met the National Training Manager and attended the first of a series of lunch and learn webinars aimed at helping me to achieve Chartered Engineer status.
What’s the best thing about working for Waterman Aspen?
Having support outside of the secondment and help to achieve my professional development goals. The company socials are great fun and I get to meet my Waterman Aspen colleagues and their partners.
What would you say to someone interested in a career in your role?
Being a Highway Engineer is very rewarding and there are always interesting new developments within the industry – I have been involved with in-situ and ex-situ recycling projects and I’m kept up to date with new technologies in the industry through the Institute of Highway Engineers which I may get to implement in my work.
