Andrew Mead - Better Future SPOTLIGHT


This week our CEO & Founder Mark Bergin welcomes Andrew Mead - Chief Architect (ARBUK) at MTR Corporation - to the Better Future Spotlight. Andrew brings 30 years of experience working in transit across the globe to the discussion as he and Mark get into the nitty-gritty of what makes a good public transit system. They break down the longitudinal timelines of transit projects and the future legacy of the decisions we make today, creating zero-carbon stations and embracing DfMA, and the processes of incorporating smart design and leading digital technologies to create efficient, sustainable, safe, and inclusive stations. The impact of Andrew's career on the world of public transit systems is remarkable and it is a great pleasure to shine the spotlight in his direction.

Quotes:

Our successes are silent, our failures are very loud
Tomorrow is always going to be a better day
I love this industry and I’ve had a fantastic career designing stations that hopefully a few million other people will also enjoy
