The BBC have reported that a woman will lead the demolition team who will bring the cooling towers at Richborough Power Station down.

She is by no mean unique as among our members we have female demolition experts including

  • an Honorary Fellow and Past President of the Institute
  • a Fellow and PhD
  • 5 Full Members
  • 2 Associate members
  • a student studying for an MSc that is demolition related.

Engineering and designing a demolition project is in this day and age fully open to women and they are very welcome within the ranks of the IDE.
