I was drawn to my profession because of the legacy the built environment leaves on our society. It's thrilling to share and reminisce that ‘I worked on that project’ as you pass by or visit an old project.
Memorable career moment?
Responding to Covid-19 by accelerating the construction of a hospital to provide 450 inpatient beds one year ahead schedule. It was both scary and rewarding at the same time!
Archus is an organisation that puts its people at its heart and truly considers the impact it is having in the way it carries out business.
Most significant trend for healthcare in the future?
Embracing innovation in the wider construction industry to make healthcare projects more consistently successful and sustainable, not only during the build phase but through the life of the building.
