Who are the people who most influenced your career direction?
Describe a typical day?
I chair and participated in a variety of design and construction team meetings for building projects. Some will be with clients and some will be with designers and subcontractor/ suppliers engaged by ABM. The role will require daily co-ordination of activities of construction trades, eg. Structural works, plumbing, electrical and finishing works. I also devise and monitor construction project management plans in addition to reviewing cost plans and sign off the selection and procurement of materials and works packages. Typical day to day work will also involve supporting the Estimating (work winning) Department and this involves preparing work schedules and project execution plans as part of ABM tenders.

What are the main challenges?
Managing the never-ending flow of information that is constantly being updated about project specifications or design features is challenging. In particular recognizing the change or update in design intent or construction activity that can cause other knock on effects! Information overload can be daunting and it is difficult to keep on top of, but a necessary part of the job.
