Luke Rushton-Marsh

Why did you choose construction? What else might you have done? 

I stared working as a labourer on a building site during the summer holidays between leaving school and starting college. I was going to college to become a police officer but just fell in love with the construction industry and the general site atmosphere. I dropped out of my college course and never looked back.

What are your career ambitions?

My career ambitions are to become a director of a large construction company.

What do you love about the industry? What would you change?

My favourite parts of the construction industry are the sense of pride you get during and on completion of a project, making your mark on history and the people that you meet. Some of my best friends I’ve met through construction and not a day goes by that we don’t have good banter.

How do you spend your spare time?

I spend my spare time playing golf and spending time with my two children aged five years and eight weeks old.
