Amanda Clack reflects on Women In Construction Week 2021

“For me working in construction is about the tangibility of literally shaping the world around us. 

It is about creating a legacy through the PhD of the Physical environment, the Digital enablement and putting the Humanistic aspect of People and Place at the heart of our thinking, whilst also being cognisant of the sustainable impact buildings and construction has in terms of waste, carbon impact and the potential towards achieving net zero. 

I love my role in the built environment and the ability to make a difference to the places and spaces for the generations yet to come.”
