Speaker 1: Simone West, Inclusive Environment & Access Consultant, Atkins
Simone is a senior member of the Atkins Access Community, having 12 years experience in the Inclusive Design and Access field. She is currently delivering a 30 minute presentation on "Accessibility and Inclusive Environments and the impact of the Equality Bill 2009" at a number of events for both clients and leading industry experts.
Speaker 2: Faithful + Gould
Faithful+Gould is one of the world's largest project and cost management consultancies, with a turnover in excess of £200 million. Faithful+Gould is a member of the Atkins Group. Atkins is the official engineering design services provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway project is a new public transport scheme under construction in the UK. The route will run from Cambridge to St Ives and on to Huntingdon, a distance of around 25km, making it the longest in the world. The new-guided bus route will allow the buses to run in a concrete 'guideway' consisting of a running surface and a low upstand at speeds of around 60mph. There will be small guide wheels on the side of the buses, which will run along the inside of the upstand to keep the wheels within the guideway. The surface of the guideway is critical as a smooth, rail-quality ride has been promised and to this end the constructed elements will be fabricated from pre-cast concrete.
