Sapoa Rimoni - Site Engineer
What do you like about being an engineer?
We’re creative thinkers and problem solvers and have the chance to make a difference and improve people’s quality of life – that motivates me every day.
What does it feel like to work on a project?
I love that Fred Taylor Drive is a huge project. The machinery is also huge and it’s amazing to be involved in something that is going to make life for people in this area easier.
I operate as a supervisor on site – I'm the liaison between subcontractor, site team and site managers. It's my job to make sure that key tasks are performed on the massive infrastructure project to widen Fred Taylor Drive.
My engineering journey
My dream goal is to be a construction manager one day, so I progressed from carpentry to a Diploma in Civil Engineering. I worked at Hawkins Infrastructure one summer – it was a great way to earn some money and see what an engineering career is all about at the same time. The company also gave me a scholarship to cover some of my tuition fees.
