“So much happening in this sector and it’s really interesting to be part of it. Services are developing in the context of rapid contextual change and the built environment has some of the most exciting innovations in technology, build quality and infrastructure.
I have been privileged to work with many good and interesting people in the sector, especially on regeneration projects but I particularly appreciated the times working with the many residents and activists who did so much on a voluntary basis.”
