Cundall team reaches final of Enginuity competition Share this article

This year, 229 teams from over 40 companies, took part across the globe, competing over an eight week period with the top 12 teams making the Enginuity final.

Enginuity is a competition that provides management leadership training that is relevant and appropriate for construction professionals worldwide. It uses a computer simulation programme which gives competing teams the task of managing a fledgling UK-based global construction business in a realistic economic climate relevant to the global economy as it is today. 

Sarah Allaoui, IT/AV Engineer in London, Dmitrijs Gavrilovs, Graduate Building Services Engineer in Edinburgh, Abdul Kassam, Graduate Structural Engineer in Dubai, Sharon Kidaha, Graduate Building Services Engineer in Birmingham and Liam Johnstone, Structural Engineer in Edinburgh, are the first Cundall team to have reached the final of the competition as their team, ‘Major Key’, came in 12th place.

The final, which runs over three weeks, will see the top 12 teams battle it out as their companies go from the ‘early years’ to the ‘later years’. This involves a number of changes in the final which will make it more difficult to win work.

Abdul Kassam commented “The Enginuity competition has been a great experience. It exposes oneself to a variety of factors to consider in decision making within the industry. As a Graduate Engineer in Dubai, it has been a great opportunity to interact with others across the globe. I look forward to the final stages of the competition and "fingers crossed" we can make it to the very top.”

At the start of the final, Major Key were in 12th place but after three rounds have stormed into 2nd place. With another three rounds to go, it promises to be an interesting final. The Enginuity champions of 2016 will be announced on Wednesday 18 May. Good luck, Major Key!
