Principal Engineer - Specialist Services
I am a Principal Engineer in the SS&CC team and my main area of work is environmental certification. I started in the industry as an electrical engineer but became interested in the environment and decided to get more involved in this aspect of work until it became full time. My job is interesting as no two days are the same and, in normal circumstances, there is a good amount of site surveying as well as meeting lots of design teams and interacting with external parties.
As a women in the construction industry I have had a mixed experience from colleagues. Some men are supportive and even protective, others have been blatantly rude and dismissive and not all women have been allies. More recently attitudes are much more pro-female and I think it is important to ensure women know there are opportunities for them to work in technical fields and traditionally more male dominated industries.
