Recent project

Whilst working on the Road Upgrading Lot D (Uganda) as leading CAD technician I worked with staff in Uganda to produce scheme drawings coordinating from my office in Southampton. The scheme was long and each set of drawings had in access of 500 drawings. There were often consistent small changes to the whole set of drawings I used software with various Lisp and script files to automatically make the changes thus making the process easier and much quicker often working on two computers, sometimes leaving them to run overnight. In Uganda I taught staff to use CAD according to Mott MacDonald standards continuing to support staff in Uganda to enable them to solve problems that occurred in their office.
