I had the opportunity to work in Skanska UK's prison project in Scotland. The eight month Stretch program gave me insight into the challenges of work schedules in an enormous project and how important the flow of information is on a site, regardless if it's a small or large one. I was also impressed by Skanska UK's safety work and strong working culture.
