Transport Infrastructure Champion Winner:

We’re also delighted to have won the Transport Infrastructure Champion category for the ARC process. Working with Transport for London (TfL) and supported by Innovate UK, we've developed design automation technology for underground tunnel cabling upgrades that offers significant benefits.

What the judges said: 'This innovative solution harnesses and develops previous automated design approaches and combines with new digital methodologies to solve a long-standing challenge. The cable routing system delivers significant safety, time and cost benefits as well as sizeable carbon reductions. The scale of future ambitions and transferability of this solution across different sectors is clearly evident.'
