Every year the Army Reserve at Chetwynd Barracks, Nottingham invite six teams from engineering and construction companies to take part in the Exercise Martello Stretch, which tests leadership, stamina and teamwork.

This year the multitude of challenges included command tasks, assault courses and a virtual shooting range. In the concluding challenge of the weekend, teams had to plan and present a support operation, aiding the emergency services during a hypothetical flooding disaster using minimum resources whilst adhering to strict time constraints.

Paul Stubbs, Defence Director at Ramboll said: “The exercise gives our office-based staff more of an understanding of what the Army does and what their aims are. The benefits are fairly significant for helping to develop the younger members of our staff on their career paths.”

Ramboll’s winning team of project managers and engineers came from offices in Chester and Southampton: Ben Frampton, David Fox, Julia Thompson, Maiga Winzenried and Piyush Sheopuri.

Julia Thompson said: “The experience was useful in terms of gaining valuable transferrable skills such as respect, discipline and time-keeping. For example if the command is to meet at 7am, you’d better be there at 6:55am!”

Ramboll was invited to take part through the Principle Service Provider (PSP) framework contract with the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). We are working on projects across the globe at unique locations such as the Falkland Islands, Cyprus and Singapore.
