Q&A with Justin

What ignited your interest in the construction industry?

From a young age construction and I bonded as I became a prolific LEGO builder and would spend hours making habits for both LEGO people and my pet hamsters to live in. Being the son of a builder I would also spend much of my weekends tiding up the small sites he developed and looking at the drawings he was trying to work from.

What's kept you working in the construction industry?

I enjoy both the area I work in and the challenges I meet. I get a lift when I receive positive feed back from my clients that I made a real difference to their project.

What's a good day at work?

The best days at work are when you are completing a Bill of Quantities when you go from can I complete this in time to yes it's done. I also really enjoy the pre-contract meetings when everything is discussed and you get that feeling of here we go again, how can I make this project go well.

What would be your alternative career?

I would love to have either been a primary school teacher or a Italian deli and bike shop owner.
