I grew up in the bushveld of South Africa, where I learnt to respect and admire nature. This is a passion that has followed me into adulthood. However, as a civil engineer, I have seen the effects that the construction industry has on the environment. Through the LEED process and sustainable building, these effects can be reduced significantly. We can also impact the lives of so many – not only by reducing environmental footprints and improving human well-being, but also by influencing the mindsets of all the people and organisations that we meet. It gives me great joy to be working with such a successful, knowledgeable, and conscientious team who have the collective goal of bettering the environment and creating a greener and cleaner future!
