Our apprentice, Lexxi Evans, was recently interviewed by Vicki Holmes, Digital Manager for Multiplex and one of the core team members for Women in BIM, to find out what it’s like to be a young woman within digital construction.
Originally wanting to be an architect, 17 year old Lexxi is now a year into her Digital Design Engineering Apprenticeship with us through our sister company, Construction & Design Centre of Excellence, which she has described as “perfect”.
So what does she find the most enjoyable about engineering? “With every job there’s always different challenges and no job is the same. You realise that everybody in the workplace is learning and there’s always something somebody doesn’t know that somebody else does. That’s what I love about this job – you’re always learning”.
Before she began at TDS, Lexxi had never heard of BIM, or that engineering could be a career opportunity. We’re glad that she took a leap into what is such an unknown area for so many young women. Now working on some amazing projects alongside our team, learning new skills within CAD and Tekla each day, it’s clear that this is where she is meant to be.
