Rémy, works manager, major projects
I chose this profession as a way of discovering different countries and different cultures, and of making a modest contribution to constructing vast infrastructure projects and improving local living conditions. Beyond all the technical challenges that attract me, I have to mobilise and unite teams around a single project and a single goal, and it’s exhilarating!
