Katrina joined Build Partners in February, after graduating with a Bachelor of Construction (majoring in Management). Her interest in building stems through growing up and being surrounded by building sites until, more recently her volunteer work for building maintenance co-ordinating at her children’s school community and coordinating her own home renovations.
Realising she had a passion for taking on projects and new challenges, along with her communication skills in organising and co-ordinating, it is here where her strength lies. She enjoys the fact that one building is never the same and projects will always evolve through systems, materials and design.
Seeing something built from the ground up and rising to a completed structure, may not appeal to everyone but Katrina finds satisfaction in bringing everything altogether on time and budget.
Previously from the healthcare industry, this has given her the experience of patient well-being and customer service, which is a much-needed asset to have in the construction industry.
In her spare time, Katrina juggles bringing up a family of three boys and getting outside to enjoy the local Waitakere trails as much as possible.
