Q&A with Martin

What ignited your interest in the construction industry?

I've had an interest in buildings for as long as I can remember. From the simplest ironage round house to The Shard and everything in between, they're all buildings performing functional requirements for their users and having an aesthetic impact on their surroundings.

What's kept you working in the construction industry?

I enjoy the variety of work my job gives me, no two days, projects or clients are ever the same. I appreciate the sense of achievement that comes from knowing my involvement has made a real difference in delivering sucessful outcomes.

What's a good day at work?

Hitting deadlines whilst producing good quality documentation gives me satisfaction. Working on measured surveys with colleagues, obtaining Planning Approvals and the handover of completed building projects are all highlights.

What would be your alternative career?

If someone would pay me to travel the world to walk, cycle, swim and camp in beautiful landscapes, I'd do that.
