Sarah Lewis shortlisted for WICE Awards 2018 Wednesday, 4 April, 2018

Hamson Barron Smith is delighted to announce that Associate Architect – Sustainability, Sarah Lewis, is among the most exemplary women in the industry having been shortlisted for the European Women in Construction and Engineering Awards 2018.

Sarah is in the running for Best Woman in Environmental and Sustainability. When Sarah joined Hamson Barron Smith in 2014 she made an immediate impact with her passion and drive for sustainable development. She is a Certified European Passivhaus designer and published author of the RIBA’s ‘PHPP Illustrated: A Designers Guide to the Passive House Planning Package’ (second edition released in 2017). Her exemplary knowledge has inspired the company to fully embrace Passivhaus and the benefits it delivers.

Women represent only 11% of the construction workforce in the UK and most of these jobs are office based and only 2% work in manual jobs. When it comes to women in engineering only 9 per cent of UK engineering professionals are women. The aim of the awards is to create role models for women considering a career in these sectors, while encouraging companies to employ and train more women in these industries.

Winners will be announced in May.
