Caught on camera: the early life of a professional

A RECENTLY chartered civil engineer has made a soon to be broadcast film describing some of her early professional experiences.

A paper on premises maintenance at the Jubilee and East London Line by London Underground's Laura Chalkley has been transformed into moving pictures by the Television Engineering Network (TEN). The civil engineering channel recently shot the film at several locations around London.

The 20 minute video focuses on how the New Engineering Contract works on a maintenance framework agreement between London Underground and Wiggins Gee Construction.

Chalkley's fledgling TV career was launched after she won TEN's first ever competition to write a 3,000 word paper suitable for a film.

'Coping with the media and communicating complex ideas clearly,' were two of the skills polished up by Chalkley in front of the camera.

The film is currently being edited and will be broadcast at the end of March.
