On the spot

ROADS: Doncaster bridge

Name: Colin Edmonds Age: 30 years old Job: Project engineer with Robert Benaim Associates Education: M Eng at Oxford studying engineering, economics and management.

Experience: Two years with Bullen and Co 'down in Croydon' and then joined Benaim. Gained overseas experience in Kuala Lumpur including 16 months seconded to Taylor Woodrow on the Star viaduct light rapid transit scheme. Since 1997 worked from the London office.

Best thing about engineering:

Working with designs and then seeing them come into being and being there when the form is decided.

. . . and the worst: Low esteem for engineers compared to peers at university going on to the City.

But it was not the wrong option.

Ambition: To keep doing this.

Any secrets: Ask my wife. I do scuba diving but have given up rugby because there are too many injuries.
