What do you enjoy most about working in student accommodation?
No two days are the same. It can be challenging and fast paced but I really enjoy the environment and the high standard of services we deliver as a team.
Can you provide details about a specific student accommodation project that you’ve been involved in, that you’re really proud of
I oversaw full refurbishment of a scheme that had 212 beds, 57 bathrooms, 27 kitchens and a study room in a traditional halls of residence. We had 9 weeks to deliver this development over summer period. It was close to the wire but we completed for student arrival! The results were fantastic and we had great feedback from students.
What does ASRA mean to you? Time to catch up with friends and colleagues! Networking, sharing experiences and best practice. ASRA also has fantastic training opportunities and is proud to be part of a forward thinking, sector leading, highly regarded Association.
What is your best ASRA memory?
Best ASRA memory…..Celtic manor, the 1920s gala ball was amazing!!!
