Engineering Rebuilt

For Episode 17, Yvonne and Tina are joined by Kit Wolverson, a consultant for Mott MacDonald, as they discuss bridges, community work, Kit's experience in the construction industry, and what Kit would like to see different in the industry in the next five years.

Ever so often we, as an industry, congratulate ourselves on a minor rise in  the percentage of women joining the construction industry. Whilst this is good and we should be pleased with the rise in diversity, when we dig a bit deeper, we find that attitudes towards women in construction, particularly on the construction site, are still in need of improvement. In this episode Kit tells us about her perspective and experience of working on site which helped her to decide to work in a design office.

Kit believes that, by being more visible and more vocal about women in construction and their experience, we can get to a point in the next 5 years where, seeing women on a construction site is 'normal' and not a novelty.

Kit also tells us what she wants to see in the construction industry with respect to sustainability.

The key topics in this episode are:

- Community work,

- Building bridges,

- Experience working on site,

- Why are bridges so good,

- Shining a light on women in construction, and

- Sustainability.
