A group of Havering Colleges’ engineering students took part a virtual work experience with Tideway West – the company delivering the £3.8billion Thames Tideway Tunnel.

At the end of the week they had to design and prepare a presentation which was shown live to tutors and representatives from Tideway, who then chose a winning team – Jimmy Sean Dady, Harry Clark, Pronoy Rahman and Arber Dalipi who created a land development scheme called the New Thames Project.

They focused on a location beside the river Thames, designing and planning a leisure area with a dock, hotel, café, restaurant, bike hire and green spaces.

All the buildings had renewable energy, solar panels and recyclable materials so that the area had a very small carbon footprint.

Tideway’s project directors said: “It was a very difficult decision to make as the projects were exceptional.”
