My mum inspired me into the sector, she also works in construction/housing. Growing up watching her work developed my interested in construction from a young age, particularly how a project can advance from a couple of drawings to an incredible building/structure.

Becki Forrest, Assistant Quantity Surveyor, Birmingham
I love the momentum that is currently building around sustainability, it wasn’t long ago that I had to fight to get sustainability on the agenda at design team meetings but now things have very much shifted and instead I am finding project teams requesting my attendance at meetings and really engaging with the discussions – it’s fantastic to see.
Abby Bartlett, Associate, Sustainability, Winchester
I kind of joined the sector by accident, as I originally trained as an Interior Designer, but I must have enjoyed it because I stayed!
Sarah Davis, Partner, Building Surveying, Bristol
Ever since being a child, I have always had a passion for the environment and grew up wanting to do something which made a difference. My first job introduced me to the construction industry, and I realised the huge impact we can have as a result of this.
