There are four or five of us on any given day on the site team, including a project manager, a construction manager and an engineer. The best thing about working in a team is that you get to see things from a different perspective. I might look at something and not give it a second thought, but someone else might think, "That doesn't sound right to me". With varying experience, there is always someone who sees things differently, and I have learnt from that. Our engineering team consists of people with a wide range of experiences and ages - from those starting in their careers to senior engineers who have seen it all!
I am a building services engineer for Knight Harwood, a main contractor who work with some of the most respected brands in the world. I am based in an office on-site in Covent Garden, London, working alongside senior building services engineers who are mentoring and supporting my development, on a 120,000 sq. ft refurbishment and extension project on four historic buildings. Currently, I work five days a week, with one day a week at university.
