Walking on site. It’s great! As a site manager I have always had a lot of freedom in doing my job. Only since the last couple of years I sometimes come to the office for a day, mainly to do some administrative work or to consult with the people of our internal departments. Yet I always look forward to the rush of a new project. The adrenaline you feel is indescribable.
By being on site often, I stay in touch with my colleagues who are working there every day. That’s something they really appreciate. Moreover, because of the office work I also stay in touch with the people in the office. After 13 years I can rely on an enormous network within the company. For each problem I can immediately call someone for advice. In the meantime, many of them have even become good friends.
A close team
As a civil works manager you get the opportunity to work on various challenging projects. For example, a water purification plant is very industrial, while a retirement home requires a more compact structure. Whatever challenge we encounter, we always find a solution.
