More About Lauren

  • After her geography degree, Lauren didn’t know what to do. A careers advisor introduced her to a construction company, she did some work experience, and the rest is history.

  • Since starting in construction, Lauren’s noticed the number of women has continued to grow, which is something she is really passionate about.

  • You get fit on site! These days she walks over 10,000 steps a day and lifts heavy equipment with no problem (it was tough at the start).

  • Lauren's always loved wearing pretty clothes, so her family were fascinated by her decision to work in construction. But the truth is, this job can suit all kinds of people.

  • She relaxes by playing the piano in the evenings, and catching up with friends.
