Engineer trying to make the world a more sustainable place!
I help people to build buildings which are more environmentally friendly, safer and more comfortable to be in.
I work for a company which aims to “build a better world together”. That means looking at buildings in lots of different ways and finding the answers to lots of questions. Some of these are:
- How do we make buildings use less energy?
- How can we make buildings safer?
- What would make the people inside a building more comfortable?
- What do people and companies need to make all of this a reality?
- And many, many more!
My main focus is on energy use in buildings and how to make sure we build them in the best way possible.
My Typical Day: I spend most of my day either talking or thinking! Talking to lots and lots of people who use buildings (so everyone!) and finding out what problems they have. It's then up to me and my team to figure out how we can help solve these problems.
My day usually starts with me recapping who I need to speak to and what problems people have sent in to us. I like to talk to people and meet with them so I can really understand what they are thinking and make sure we all understand each other. I’ll then take what we found back to the team and discuss what we can do to help. And then the exciting bit about coming up with a solution.
