My favorite projects
1. Olympic & Paralympic program team, UK
“During my placement year, I was on the program team helping to deliver London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It was working on this program that cemented my desire to work for Arcadis. Working on such a high profile scheme is incredibly rewarding, especially when the outcomes are a resounding success and the team so willing to help you develop and give you opportunities.”
2. Electricity supply substation
“My first assistant project manager role was working on an ongoing redevelopment of a 132kV substation critical to supplying a consistent electricity supply to many high-profile users in London. The project meant fully relocating to the client’s offices and team. Being seconded directly into a client team helps you develop strong consulting skills and acquire excellent understanding of the client’s requirements.”
