GCG view

Describing themselves as "the world's leading natural and built asset design and consultancy firm", structural engineers to the rest of us, they appear to have buried their information on apprenticeships deep in their foundations. We saw an intriguing video including bootlace tying and upmarket sandwiches but until we found a contact we had to find the info elsewhere.
