Week 3

posted 11 Jun 2012, 08:22 by Group Design Projects Imperial
The third week has been a struggle for our group. After working so hard in week 2 we were all tired out and coming back from an enjoyable jubilee weekend was tough for certain members of the group (Tom E). The group seemed to lack direction at the start of the week, but with some great motivation from Socrates, we pulled it together and prepared for the third critical session.

Tom H, Yili and Chen presented some fantastic work on the canal design including a finalized route plan including artificial lakes, lock designs and section designs. Matthew and Socrates presented their methodology on deciding the port locations and their layouts. Jackie, Efe and Solomon presented their findings of the economic and environmental appraisals, and Tom E made a fool of himself as usual while presenting his work on port security (and some of Solomon’s work on dredging.)

The group was so thrilled with our performance that we went to eastside and celebrated with a pitcher of Pimms and an easy afternoon planning for next week. We still have a lot of work to do and writing up will be a tough task. It looks to be a busy one…
