Laura, who studied Architectural Engineering and Design Management Course at Loughborough University, joined Kier Group on a 12-month placement. Hear her experiences below:
When my parents bought and renovated a Grade II listed manor house in the 90s, my passion for construction began. I took an Architectural Engineering and Design Management Course at Loughborough University and joined Kier for a 12-month placement. I went on to achieve a 1st class Honours degree and in 2011 came to Kier as an Assistant Design Manager to work on 5 Pancras Square at Kings Cross for Kier London. In 2013 I was promoted to Design Manager. At Kier I'm constantly driven to provide best value to the client through good quality design, and through a conscientious and methodical approach towards work.
Construction projects shape the wider community we work in. To offset the impact of our construction activities while on 5 Pancras Square, I co-founded the Corporate Responsibility committee for Kier at Kings Cross. The committee was influential in arranging a number of events to actively engage with the community, and I was recognised with an award at the Kier Construction Major Projects staff gathering.
