D&W welcomes Sam on placement from British Army

Danaher & Walsh is pleased have to welcomed Sgt Sam Milliner of 1 Royal School of Military Engineering on a six week placement.

Originally hailing from Nuneaton, Sam, who has been a member of the armed forces since 2005, is undertaking the Military Plant Foreman (MPF) 57 course at Brompton Barracks in Chatham, Kent.

The course is an 18 month foundation degree in civil engineering, accredited by the University of Greenwich. 

As part of the programme, students undertake a six week attachment with a civilian contractor in order to gain a different perspective on the world of civil engineering.

Established in 1812, the Royal School of Military Engineering is a world-renowned centre of excellence for combat engineering, which comprises numerous technical disciplines necessary to support HM Armed Forces in operational deployments.

During Sam's highly successful placement with D&W, he proved popular with colleagues. 

Senior Site Agent Michal Slavik, who worked with Sam on a scheme at Pioneer Park, Leicester, said: "I would like to thank Sam for his contribution to this project, for his professionalism, enthusiasm, and willingness to get involved in a variety of tasks".
