D2 Rail Recruits New Project Controls Team Member

D2 Rail is delighted to welcome a new Project Controls Assistant to the team. Neeraj Sukumaran is a versatile and results driven professional, with over 5 years of experience in planning, managing and delivering projects on time and to budget.

With a background in Civil Engineering, having graduated in 2012, Neeraj spent 3 years with Jacobs Engineering until 2015, working on a number of residential and government projects in India. He then worked for ETE Saudi Arabia as a Planning Engineer until 2017, developing his project controls and planning skills using Primavera P6 software to support the bid team throughout the pre-contracts phase of a number of EPC schemes, right the way through into controlling and monitoring the projects on site for the post contract team.

In 2017, Neeraj added to his education, by undertaking a MSc in Construction Management at the University of Salford and it is this association that led to his recruitment with D2 Rail.

Neeraj will be based at 4PP and assisting with the implementation of the Earned Value Management system at the Transpennine Route Upgrade project (TRU). He will report to Project Controls lead, Dave Harwood.

In his spare time, Neeraj enjoys fishing, watching football and riding motorcycles and is planning to purchase a new ‘Iron Head’ Harley next year.

Dave Harwood, Project Controls Lead, commented further on this appointment by saying:

“We are delighted to welcome Neeraj to the D2 family. The project controls team is growing day-by-day and we very pleased to have recruited such a talented individual.

“All at D2 Rail wish Neeraj every success in his new role.”
