He started out working in construction with his dad and later moved on to bigger projects. on of his greatest projects was his construction of the great western railway. he stated " I am doing to design... a station after my own fancy; that is, with engineering roofs". before he started the great western railway which stretched from London to west and east western England and than to most of whales. he transformed the railway industry mostly because he used a broad gauge. most people at the time were using standard gauge for there trains but Brunel felt like with the design of their track that broad-gauge was best suited for what they built. he also constructed the SS great Britain which was also one of his best designs.
- One of his main mentors was Gemma brogan, she helped him through his rough family issues

- The way people describe him on websites make him seem like he changed the way people think about change in design and construction.
