Message from Greg

Hi everyone,

We hope you’re surviving the countdown to Christmas – the run up to the holidays is hectic as usual! The team took some well-deserved time out for our Christmas party, with some beautiful weather, excellent food and great company with all the extended family and kids. I hope you’re all scheduled for a well-earned break as well. Keep us in mind if you need a bit of help in the New Year, we’re ready to hit the ground running…

We’ve just finalised our calendar, I’m so impressed every year with what our team creates through their collaboration with our clients. I wish we could show you them all, but many are still IP sensitive, or the client would rather not have it known that a partner firm does some of their best engineering! But the ones we get to show each year highlight the dedication and rigour our engineers bring to each task – I’m very proud of them.

Enjoy our final newsletter of 2018, Merry Christmas, and have a safe and very happy New Year!

Greg Morehouse



#Stress Buster


It was Christmas and the judge was in a merry mood as he asked the prisoner, “What are you charged with?”
“Doing my Christmas shopping early,” replied the defendant.
“That’s no offense,” said the judge. “How early were you doing this shopping?”
“Before the store opened,” countered the prisoner.
