Francesca Destefano, Head of Section, Project Management, Buildings
Variety is what I really like about working in COWI. If you are a curious person, this is the place where you can get to work on a broad range of projects.
Our organisation is characterised by a high degree of collaboration between departments and business units. When we start a new project, we look for the right persons to fill the different roles. Staffing for projects is dynamic and fluid and centres on what is right for that particular customer and project. This allows our colleagues to be able to work on different type of projects, no matter which department you’re in. Airports, hospitals, industrial developments, infrastructure, iconic buildings – you name it.
In the company DNA, there is a strong culture of helpfulness and collaboration. We have critical mass and colleagues specialised in every field imaginable. Formal training is important for our professional development, as well as having the possibility to sit together with very experienced colleagues, getting their mentoring and support during your everyday work. You’re never on your own at COWI.
We have a number of ongoing projects that I find exciting. For instance, helping big customers optimising their energy consumption as part of driving their green transition. Let’s just say that's a very relevant process in the current energy crisis.
We also have big projects for critical infrastructure like water plants – a lot of them are very worn down and in need of renovation. These are highly complex projects where you have to balance many different considerations. You can’t just shut down the water supply to a city; you have to aim for creating greener and more sustainable solutions and, of course, you must build something that can last the next 100 years or longer.
We need you
