HOP Run/Walk/Cycle

Posted on the 23rd June 2017

Last month, we held our annual Run/Walk/Cycle social event for our staff.

We believe it is important for individuals across teams, to come together and engage in informal team exercises. This event in particular, encourages others to join the team of existing HOP athletes. It was a fantastic day in the sun. A special well done must go to the HOP runners who defeated the hilly route across the Downs in the scorching 25 degree heat.

Rampion Site Visit

Posted on the 8th June 2017

On Monday 22nd May, HOP technical and support staff had the opportunity to spend the afternoon on site and experience construction up close. We consider it important for all HOP members to get a chance to see first-hand the work that HOP plays a pivotal part in, and this served as yet another fantastic CPD exercise. The visit also served as a great opportunity for our work experience student to see yet another side of Engineering, outside of the office environment.

“As usual, it was enjoyable to spend time with members of the HOP team who I may not regularly see around the office.
The site visit was very informative and was an excellent way to help visualise various aspects of our projects. A big thank you for arranging this trip!” – HOP Graduate Engineer
