Brunel House

Isambard Kingdom Brunel, (9 April 1806 – 15 September 1859), was the greatest British engineer ever to have lived. He is best known for the creation of the Great Western Railway, a series of famous steamships, including the first propeller-driven transatlantic steamship, and numerous important bridges and tunnels. His designs revolutionised modern engineering and still stand today.

Though Brunel’s projects were not always successful, they always contained innovative solutions to longstanding engineering problems, he thought outside the box . During his short career, Brunel achieved many engineering “firsts”, including development of the SS Great Britain, the first propeller- driven ocean-going iron ship, which was at the time (1843) also the largest ship ever built.
