Personal Statement

 

Finding solutions to the ever - growing problem of limited resources in our world has been a challenge. In construction, we have to be able to utilise our assets by more collaborative working and smarter communication. The future of the industry lies in its ability to adapt to change, which is what sustainability is about. Companies must find construction and building projects. This is why my focus on sustainable design for my PhD was both timely and important. I studied a project delivery process called Soft Landings, which encourages all stakeholders to communicate smarter.

 

As a trained Architect with a Masters' in Construction Management and Economics, my passion in design gives me a unique perspective  on the beginning of a construction project. I discovered from my research that companies are reluctant to share information even when working on the same project. Soft Landings allows all stakeholders to receive, relay, and use information judiciously. This eliminates waste and saves time and energy on the project.
