Morrish Consulting Engineers are featured within an article in the Bury Mercury on a development we're working on for Havebury Housing in Bury St Edmunds
Construction is well underway on the redevelopment of a social housing scheme at Tayfen Road in Bury St Edmunds for Havebury Housing Partnership... Two Bury St Edmunds-based businesses are involved in the scheme. Rees Pryer, based on Kempson Way, is the architect and Morrish & Partners in Whiting Street are the civil engineering and structural designers... [Havebury] said: “We are extremely pleased with how construction is progressing. The plan has been well thought through and maximises the potential by converting the two older buildings on the site and constructing a new building on the remaining land to create much needed social housing and affordable homes for the town.”

We've been very fortunate to have had a great couple of work experience placements over the summer. Patrycja was with us for a couple of weeks and made a great contribution to the team, helping to develop CAD drawings for current projects. Hopefully we've been able to give her a great introduction to the world of Structural Engineering and we wish her all the best as she starts her final year of GCSEs.
Alfie is currently at Sheffield University and had a placement with us over the summer to help cement his current studies with real life engineering. Working on a range of projects, he was exposed to a number of different construction methods and procedures as well as being able to visit a couple of sites. We wish Alfie the best of luck with his continued studies.
Morrish Consulting Engineers are very proud of the work experience placements and opportunities we offer and should you be interested in coming to see us, please do get in touch.
It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to Lloyd a couple of weeks ago. Adventurer Lloyd will be going off to Denmark in September to do his masters and we wish him the best of luck. In true Lloyd fashion, his leaving do involved beer and we had a great night at the Greene King brewery tour - followed by alot of tasting and some food in the local DnP.
We'd like to introduce and welcome Marie as our latest member of staff at Morrish. Marie will be the first port of call when either popping in or phoning the office and is responsible for helping with the day to day running of the business whilst also looking after the accounts and supplying everyone with copious amounts of coffee!
Lloyd, as his alter ego 'Super Structures', has recently been helping out on the ICE stand at the latest Big Bang event. 'Big Bang is the largest educational event of its kind in the UK' and helps to highlight not only Civil and Structural careers to young people, but also an array of pathways that the STEM section offers.

Today is the opening of the ICE Exhibition ‘Invisible Superheroes’ at One Great George Street, London. This marks the start of the Institution of Civil Engineers’ 200th year celebrations, which I’ve been lucky enough to be part of.
Information about the exhibition can be found here; https://www.ice.org.uk/events/exhibitions/ice-invisible-superheroes-exhibition
The idea of the comic superhero theme is to enthuse the younger generation visiting this exhibition and show them the importance of Civil and Structural Engineering around the world, channelling the STEM Ambassador work we do here. I have been depicted as ‘Super Structures’ in a group of 10 Engineers, all of which have very inspiring backgrounds that I urge you to have a read about when you have a minute.
If you’re in London the next coming months, it may also be worth a visit - from photos I’ve been shown, it looks a very impressive display!

We’re then back in the office (much heavier) on Tuesday 2nd January 8.45am.
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year!
