“My mornings began at 5am which gives me enough time to have breakfast with my family and to play with my daughter before nursery. Since becoming a parent a year ago, every minute is gold, so work begins on the station platform, rain or shine, and the train is my second office.
My typical day consists of a varied range of activities, from thinking up ways to keep the team involved, to project resourcing, to writing up energy strategies for challenging sites, to sketching up ways to translate complex engineering ideas into simple graphics, to planning the growth of Hilson Moran’s new MEE Group (Masterplan Energy & Environment).
