  • Comment on: Council to rule on £196M Edinburgh tram expansion

    Vicky Bache's comment 11 February, 2019 8:41 am

    The original cost forecast for the Edinburgh Tram, including the Newhaven link was £470 million. That was issued in mid 2007, if I remember correctly.

  • Comment on: Attitudes to LGBT+ in construction | third annual survey

    Vicky Bache's comment 6 September, 2017 8:41 am

    Can you imagine how exhausting it must be to have to think every sentence through before you say it so that you don't out yourself? A colleague asks what you did at the weekend and you have to think to make the sentence gender neutral before you say it. Not to mention the derogatory comments "That's really gay!" when someone does or says something they don't approve of.

    Someone's gender or sexual orientation shouldn't make a damn bit of difference to how they're treated at work or received by colleagues. We're in the 21st century now. Let's all act like it.

  • Comment on: Girls encouraged to take STEM subjects

    Vicky Bache's comment 7 September, 2016 1:14 pm

    A general complaint about women in engineering is that woman are only depicted out on site in hi vis and hard hat (and presumably other appropriate PPE), which it is generally felt is offputting to young women. Would it be possible to show a picture of a woman in a smart suit in an office leading a meeting and talking through drawings shown on a computer screen as a more enticing image to young women?

    Why in this time of data protection does the NCE publish full addresses? Surely a name and county, at most, would be sufficient information.
