At Placemakers, we are proud of representing women in the construction industry. In one of our current live projects, all senior members of staff appointed are female. We feel that this representation in todays society is important, where historically a female presence in this industry has been rare.
Statistics show that only 13% of the construction industry is made up of women, with a small 1% working on site. Raising awareness and celebrating women in construction is therefore all the more necessary, where many may not be aware of the opportunities available to them.
For more information on this, please see the below article by womenintoconstruction.org elaborating more on the different opportunities presented: http://www.womenintoconstruction.org/5-
