Introducing Daisy Gibson on International Women's Day 2022

To celebrate International Women’s Day, we will be sharing the achievements of women across the business throughout the week. Here, Engineer Daisy Gibson talks about her path into construction, her role and aspirations for the future.

We're proud to support and celebrate International Women’s Day across Sir Robert McAlpine. 

This week, in support of International Women’s Day, we’re helping to #BreakTheBias by celebrating the achievements of women across the business. 

Introducing Daisy Gibson

Daisy is an engineer currently working on site at Sir Robert McAlpine's Battersea Phase 3A project.

She studied Civil Engineering at Bristol University and was sponsored by Sir Robert McAlpine which allowed her to work on different projects over the summer and gain hands on experience that helped with her studies. 

Daisy then joined our graduate scheme and has been working on Battersea Phase 3A since then. She considers herself fortunate to have worked in various roles including design management, procurement, package engineering and seeing out sectional completion.

In this video, Daisy shares more about her route into construction and what International Women's Day means to her, including how we can #BreakTheBias by creating a more inclusive workplace.
