It's Women in Construction Week!
10th March 2021
As we reach the pinnacle of Women in Construction Week, FHP is taking the time to recognise the fantastic women making major contributions to the business across our London, Leeds and Sheffield offices.
The Construction and Engineering sectors offer some of the most exciting and diverse career prospects, as well as leading the way in creating and implementing more sustainable and green solutions. It is an industry focused on the future and there has never been a better time to join the growing number of women choosing a career to make sure they are a part of it.
We started the week with International Women's Day and continue our introductions today with Tina Hadi, our fantastic Revit Coordinator at the FHP London office.
Tell us a bit about yourself.
My name is Tina Hadi, I am 28 years old and I work in the London FHP office. Outside of work I enjoy travelling, painting and yoga.
What is your Job Title?
When did you join FHP?
What made you choose a career in the Construction and Engineering industry?
My dad, my mum and my brother have all worked in the construction industry and part of my degree involved learning to use CAD.
How do you feel about working in a traditionally male dominated sector?
I work with great team of people so fortunately I’ve never found it to be an issue, however it would be great to see more women come into the industry.
What is it like working at FHP?
I enjoy working at FHP as there’s a real “Family Feel” culture in the office and it’s been a great place for me to learn and develop in the industry.
What impact do you feel you’ve had since joining?
I’ve put the invaluable skills & knowledge that I’ve learnt along the way into all of my projects to provide high quality drawings and models for our clients.
What do you enjoy most?
I enjoy the problem solving aspect of creating a coordinated 3D model and finding solutions to clashes.
What advice would you give to women thinking about a career in the Construction industry?
I’d say follow your career goals and just go for it!
Who is your most important female role model and why?
My mum is my most important female role model. She is a qualified structural engineer and also one of the kindest, strongest, hardworking woman you could ever meet.
