Meet The Authors
Hi, I’m Sabin. After completing two years at Greenwich University studying Design and Construction management, I decided to take a year out in the industry. I thought that this would give me more experience in construction and make me better prepared. After finishing my last year, I found out about this graduate programme and applied. I was concerned that I had never worked on a housing site and coming from high-rise construction background, I will be lacking of knowledge. However, I was lucky enough to be offered a job in London on one of Redrow’s top sites, which were entirely high rise buildings.
From day one, I had been involved in planning, logistics, health and safety monitoring, and also carrying out inductions. Being on such a large development, I have realised that there is no such a thing as a ‘typical day’ on site.
I originally thought that the mangers on site would not have time for me, but I was very wrong. Although they are facing different challenges everyday, they are keen to show me every aspect of construction and how to tackle any problem that arises.
Working on Redrow’s flagship project, I have been given so many different tasks and responsibilities, which has really helped me to develop my skill set. I would strongly recommend the graduate scheme and Redrow to anyone who wants to pursue an exciting career in construction.
