Welcome to Harriet

This month we welcome new starter Harriet to the GB Card & Partners team. Harriet will be joining our Canterbury office as an Engineer and has already hit the ground running, immersing herself in several of our key projects in the south-east.

Harriet graduated from the University of Exeter (Camborne School of Mines) in 2019 with a 2:1 in Engineering Geology and Geotechnics, then went on to study an MSc in Tunnelling at the University of Warwick with a final project designing a potential underground freight system in London.

Following that Harriet then worked for a year as a geotechnical engineer on the Long Itchington Wood Tunnel for HS2 and has also undertaken fieldwork across Europe, including a month’s exploration in Norway looking for gold and volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits.

As 2022 continues to deliver plenty of exciting and interesting projects, it’s great to have Harriet join the team. Should you wish to contact Harriet about any projects you can email her at
