In the publication's foreword, The Rt. Hon. Nicola Sturgeon MSP – First Minister of Scotland writes: "My congratulations and admiration go to every person who has been involved in this record-breaking project."
Since opening in 2017 QFC has attracted admiration from industry and the public alike for its iconic status and the engineering excellence that went into its design and construction.
The authorship of these papers is indicative of how the project brought together people, skills and materials from around the world and the collaboration required to build major crossings of such scale and complexity. For example, the successful collaborative approach between the contractor, designer and employer resulted in construction processes that permitted speedy resolution of issues that were unique to the location and weather conditions. This contributed to avoidance of substantial delays.
Hundreds of Ramboll employees from the UK, Denmark and India are proud to have played a part in this magnificent project, including our eight featured authors who had the following roles:
