We are delighted to announce our support for Warwick Boring, a team of thirty students from Warwick University who are finalists in an international tunnelling competition set up by Elon Musk’s The Boring Company.
Selected from nearly 400 applicants, Warwick Boring is one of 12 teams chosen to help solve challenges around sustainability in the tunnelling industry. Team members include Warwick STEM students and alumni, from a range of fields including mechanical, electrical, system engineering, physics, and mathematics, who are supported by several industry experts and university academics.
Having started the competition in September last year, the group will be competing against other top universities and industry tunnelling professionals at the final event taking place in Nevada, US this summer.
In addition to financial support, we have committed to introducing Warwick Boring to our extensive network of organisations with an engineering and tunnelling focus to enable further support, through direct introductions and roundtable events.
After speaking to Sanzhar Taizhan, Founder and Co-Project Lead at Warwick Boring he commented:
“We’re still in shock about reaching the finals but we’re working around the clock to design and engineer the project. We have an extremely talented team who have got us to the finals but it’s thanks to companies such as Granger Reis who understand what we’re trying to achieve and are more than happy to support us that is keeping this project running. The company’s commitment to sustainability goes hand in hand with our ambitions and we are extremely excited to have them on board and to have their support as a Gold Sponsor.”
We are extremely excited to be supporting such a talented group of individuals and we’re looking forward to seeing the final results.
