Rachel Bickle – Civil Engineering

My name is Rachel Bickle and I was a Civil Engineering Intern at LOR working on the 100 Mount Street Project. I was involved in the quality control process for structural and architectural finishes and liaised with subcontractors, clients and other supply chain members to meet the combined goal of outstanding quality. During my internship, I learnt so much about construction and was able to network with people from all aspects of the industry and this is why you should consider a career at Laing O’Rourke.
