What is your role?

Senior Quantity Surveyor

What is it like working for Soben?

Coming home from New Zealand last year, I found it very daunting setting myself up back in Scotland, as I had been away for so long. When the opportunity came along to work for Soben, I was welcomed with open arms and felt part of the team instantly.

The team and office culture within Soben is amazing, which makes Soben so unique. We all work to the common goal to produce the best quality work to our clients, with a work ethic that is second to none. I look forward to what the future holds for myself and Soben, which I am sure is an exciting one.

What is your favourite project and why?

Google HQ – the scale of the project is unbelievable. It is a one-of-a-kind project that I have enjoyed being apart of.

The different variety of construction made it very interesting, and it challenged myself and the team to think outside the box to deliver such a prestigious project.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Being a leader to a team of world-class quantity surveyors.

The office banter.
