I am a Project Manager at Rider Levett Bucknall with experience on Infrastructure and large-scale Logistics schemes such as Very Light Rail, Peddimore and Mercia Park. I was Shortlisted for the Young Surveyor of the Year Award 2020 for Project Management just 12 months after beginning my career.
I am passionate about sustainability and hope to use the G4C platform to advocate the importance of increasing the positive impacts of the Built Environment on local communities and the wider world. The momentum that sustainability is gaining is significant and I am excited to play a role in embedding this into the industry’s culture.
As a young member of the Construction industry myself, I understand the importance of young people’s voices being acknowledged and understood, but also the difficulties we sometimes face in getting there. I am looking forward to G4C Birmingham providing opportunities to be heard for the industry’s next generation of leaders.
Assistant Quantity Surveyor
Having always been interested in structures and construction, I started out in the industry in 2015 straight from finishing A-levels, when I joined Faithful+Gould as a trainee quantity surveyor. I have been at F+G ever since, mostly involved in delivering infrastructure and highways projects across the Midlands and now, having completed my degree I’m working towards sitting my APC and gaining chartership with the RICS. Over the last year or so I’ve been increasingly interested in the role the construction industry and specifically the transportation sector can play in the global sustainability agenda and our responsibility to contribute to meeting the Net Zero Carbon challenge.
I’m really excited to have this opportunity to help develop G4C in the Midlands, we’re planning to hold some great events and build a network of young professionals across the region who are keen to shape the future of our industry and contribute to solving the current challenges that we face throughout the country and economy.
Graduate Civil Engineer
I am a MEng Civil Engineering Graduate of Coventry University working for Mott MacDonald, based in the Birmingham office. My role has mainly focussed on highway design projects so far but also on site surveying and ground investigation. I am currently Junior Vice Chair for the Institute of Civil Engineers West Midlands Graduates and Students committee where we organise events to further continued professional development of members, networking and a range of workshops ranging from chartership best practice to special interests.
I spend most of my time outdoors when I can, hiking and wild camping in remote areas and road cycling. When confined to the city I like to keep fit through weight training, cooking (which goes well with eating), trying to learn a bass guitar and getting involved with local events. I am interested in local and regional history, particularly the industrial revolution and of the built environment, and that of the natural environment too.
