Welcome to Lulu who has just joined the team. Lulu likes a hybrid work lifestyle splitting her time between working from home and coming into the office. She has extensive experience and specialises in sniffing, tail wags, naps, walks and cuddles. We are aiming to improve her engineering skills. She has taken an interest in some aspects of civils, mainly projects involving coastal site visits and where sticks will be thrown. At least its a start, not sure how good she is going to be at answering the phone or making a cuppa?!
