Galliford Try senior design manager Poppy Parsons has been appointed as the company’s low carbon construction lead.
In her new role she will lead the development of company strategy and delivery of sustainable low carbon construction across all sectors and regions.
She will focus on how Galliford Try designs, builds, and maintains low carbon infrastructure and buildings through selection of materials, construction methodologies and operational energy consumption.
When required she will also assist with end-of-life decommissioning and working closely with clients, designers, and the supply chain.
Parsons was the lead author of a recent study by the company to explore the possibility of creating a net-zero carbon school that met Department for Education guidelines.
Bill Hocking, chief executive at Galliford Try, said: “Poppy’s background in design management and knowledge of our business gives her an excellent footing for this new role and is a mark of the strength of our team that we have been able to make this appointment from within our own business.
“It’s an exciting future as the decarbonisation of our own business and the built environment becomes very real and I look forward to gaining further momentum in this area as we deliver our sustainable growth strategy.”
