5 minutes with … Priya Shah at Linesight

Priya Shah[42][25]

The global consultancy’s associate director on her transition from the nuclear sector, her training scheme for chemical engineers and the need for digital transformation

Why did you choose construction as a career?

I initially studied chemical engineering and started my career working as a process engineer in the nuclear sector. A lot of my early career was based on site, where I would be busy designing heat exchangers or replacing valves. During this time my attention was drawn to a number of complex construction projects in progress close by.

The possibilities presented by the construction industry, including the sheer size and scale of the projects in development, is what motivated me to transition my career into construction in 2017.
