One evening, recently, I stood at the top of the core and looked across the Birmingham skyline. We had just completed the first core, and this felt like a key point in the project. One of the things I love about being a construction professional is that we get a very unique view of the surrounding areas. We get to see views that others will never see, like the view from a crane or the view from a scaffold staircase. Sometimes these views are only available for a short period of time and it can feel a privilege being able to see a unique perspective of an area. Our jobs are based on information, calculations, drawings, and digitalised models. It’s good occasionally just to stop and appreciate the beauty of what we create.
