The company continually strives for innovation, providing clients with efficient designs across a wide portfolio of award winning projects.Current topical projects include the East London Line railway where TGP is designing key sections of TfL’s renewal and extension scheme.
The firm was Costain’s designer for the Castleford Footbridge, recently featured on Channel 4’s 'Kevin McCloud and the Big Town Plan'. The overseas team is currently designing a major viaduct in Abu Dhabi.
TGP student engineers work on a wide variety of projects, including highway, railway, geotechnical, industrial and commercial building projects. You may find yourself developing computer analyses of structures, writing feasibility studies, and designing and checking structures in steel and concrete.
Every year a 'Student Convention' - a rewarding, interesting and fun week of site visits and team-building activities, allows graduates and students to network with colleagues from other offices, and visiting high profile engineering projects.
TGP’s graduate training scheme for the ICE includes site placements arranged with contractor clients to gain practical experience. You will be actively involved throughout the life of a project, from initial investigations to detailed design and also provide site support during construction.

Graduate profile: Tommy Szeto
"I graduated from Cardiff University in 2004 with an MEng in civil engineering. 'My third year spent on an industrial placement working for Tony Gee and Partners," recalled Tommy.
"During my industrial placement, the work I carried out and my role within the different project design teams allowed me to consolidate university lectures as well as develop further as a professional engineer. I was subsequently sponsored and continued to work for TGP in the following summers."
Tommy was enthused about his placement with the company. "I had been involved on a variety of projects ranging from the detailed design of a major design and build highways project worth £11.5 million to structural steel design checks on a high rise building at Canary Wharf, London."
He went back to the firm to work full time after graduation. "As a graduate engineer, I have continued to work on highways design," he said. "I have worked on a host of design and build contracts for the Scottish Executive with values ranging from £4m to £7m. I have just recently spent 14 months on a secondment with a contractor on site at the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London as part of the infrastructure upgrade in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games." "The sense of value I have as a team member, and the responsibility given me is reflected on the roles I play as part of a team. TGP provides challenging work in a friendly, supportive and professional work environment."
Graduate profile: Laura Lee
Laura Lee is at the start of her career as an engineer – still a student, she is working with Tony Gee and Partners on her industrial placement year. "I am studying for an MEng degree at University of Southampton," Laura explained. "I have already completed two years of study at university, and now I am nearing the end of my placement year with TGP." "Working here as a student has been a great experience for me. Throughout my industrial placement year I have been involved in some very interesting projects as part of the Rail Group. This has included a feasibility study for a London rail bridge with brief to assess options for strengthening and reconstruction. I have also completed a design for a prestressed concrete bridge to replace an existing structure. It was rewarding to be involved in a project from its beginning and see it through to the final construction on site."
"Whilst the new responsibilities that have come my way have been challenging, there is a very supportive environment at TGP. My confidence has really grown throughout my placement year. The experience I have gained will greatly benefit me when I go back for my final years of university."
