Starting at UGL in 1999 as a Graduate Mechanical Engineer, Matthew Karunakaran first worked on the M5 East Tunnel project. 22 years later, he is now UGL’s Head of Engineering, Mechanical for the Major Projects line of business.
“As a young engineer, it was truly exhilarating, to be able to see a large iconic project from the very start. Doing concept design through to commissioning those very design outcomes, to watching the first cars roll through the tunnel. The sense of achievement and growth along the journey was immense, and from then on, I was hooked on these types of turnkey projects.”
