Can you outline the responsibilities of your role?
My role involves conducting site inspections to assess and report back to clients, funders, and main contractors on issues related to workmanship, quality, and health and safety. During these inspections, I also perform quality assurance reviews and benchmark assessments, and I compile detailed weekly progress reports for all relevant parties. I typically visit sites on a weekly basis, with some requiring inspections every two weeks. In addition to these tasks, I compile monthly reports that document all pertinent information for my assigned sites, which are then shared with relevant client-based personnel.
Describe your experiences and growth at Circle?
I joined Circle as a Clerk of Works in 2022 and have had the opportunity to be involved in multiple projects at various stages of construction. These stages have ranged from excavation to snagging and completion. Currently, I am enrolled in the MCIOB PR pathway and am on track to submit my PR review by the end of December 2023 to attain my MCIOB status.
What is your favourite project?
My favourite project to date is the Arbor Hotel in Aldgate. This project involved the strip-out and remodel of an existing hotel, along with the removal of the existing car park, which was replaced by a new RC frame extension. Overcoming the challenges posed by the site’s small footprint and the strip-out and refit works made this project particularly rewarding. I’ve been involved in this project since the 1st fix stage of the existing building and the excavation stage for the extension. The existing building has achieved practical completion, and the extension building is set to be handed over at the beginning of December.
What brings you joy outside of work?
I’m a food enthusiast who enjoys exploring different cuisines. My passion extends to motors and mechanics, and I keep active with a daily gym and weightlifting routine to balance out my love for socializing, traveling, and my fascination with tasting cocktails!
