Case study Rachel Long CEng MIMMM

What does a Geotechnical Engineer do?

Published: 02/12/2016

Rachel Long CEng MIMMMAs a Geotechnical Engineer at BAM Ritchies, Rachel Long CEng MIMMM has been involved in a number of projects for roads, tunnels and dams working for utility companies, local government and the MOD.

She was involved in slope stabilisation works on the stretch of road in Scotland known as the Rest and Be Thankful, which is prone to landslides, and installed the first debris flow barriers of their kind in the UK. She also supervised tunnel works in an 18 month recovery project on the Glendoe Hydro Scheme, following major damage to the power tunnel in 2009.

Rachel said: “Being a CEng demonstrates my competence and knowledge as an engineer so my employer can have confidence in my ability. It is also beneficial when tendering for work to have Chartered Engineers within the company as this is often a requirement of customers.”
