Arup, Tony Gee & Partners and Mott MacDonald are just some of the many engineering firms already signed up for the event. Arup's Mark Tindale, who has previously participated in the challenge, commented: "The challenge simulates the sort of work that often needs to be done in the field and raises many of the issues that relief workers face".
To enter a four-man team for the challenge, companies must pay £500, which will go towards further training and skills development for RedR employees deployed in disaster zones.
