Camberley, 13 July 2018 - BAM Nuttall trainee quantity surveyor Terl Patrick has become the youngest ever technical member of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors at the age of 19.

The teenager, who is currently working for Fusion, the joint venture between BAM Nuttall, Morgan Sindall and Ferrovial Agroman, on the HS2 Central enabling working works, started his career at the leading construction and engineering company on its Hampstead Heath flood prevention pond project.

‘It’s a fantastic feeling to be the youngest technical member of the Institution’, says Terl. ‘When I was at school I wasn’t sure what career I wanted to pursue. I knew I liked Maths and Science but Business also interested me and the careers adviser suggested surveying. I didn’t want to take A-levels so joined the BAM Nuttall apprenticeship scheme at Stephenson College in Coalville, Leicestershire. Everybody has been very supportive, it’s well organised, I have worked on interesting projects and I’m paid while studying so it has turned out well for me.’

Ian Cowling, Head of Commercial Services at BAM Nuttall and the current President of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Quantity Surveyors, says: ‘We are really pleased to see that our trainee quantity surveyor, Terl Patrick, has become the youngest ever technical member of the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors following his successful review. It is reward not just for his ability, but his hard work and enthusiasm as well.’

The next step for Terl on his career ladder is to become an assistant quantity surveyor. When not working, the Kettering resident enjoys going to the gym and playing five-a-side football.
