Antonia Konstantinidou

BEng (Hons), MSc

Mechanical Building Services Engineer

“My name is Antonia and I currently work for Ridge as a Graduate Building Services Engineer. I have been part of the Building Services Engineering team for approximately three years now, in a position which is gradually evolving. My role comprises lots of different tasks.  These may typically involve heating, cooling and ventilation, hot and cold water systems, lighting and electrical systems, renewable energy and new sustainable technologies.

I have worked on a wide variety of projects since joining Ridge and this has contributed to the rapid development of my knowledge, experience and progress as a professional. These projects have included residential, education, manufacturing, commercial and office schemes.

Ridge also gives me the important opportunity to deal with other responsibilities away from typical office tasks, to spend my time in a range of locations. By doing site visits I have an excellent opportunity to develop a greater understanding of how building services engineering theory is put into practice.

Ridge invests in our future by offering a variety of options for professional progress and development. I have attended various training courses and CPD seminars regarding my profession gaining knowledge on really useful software such as Revit and IES, and many CIBSE accredited courses and seminars that actually improve and broaden my knowledge and skills.

One of the most pleasant aspects is the working environment that Ridge offers. It gives you the ability to work well as part of a team and collaboratively with other construction professionals. This really helps to build our relationships and at the same time has a great impact on our working performance. Throughout this time I have worked with many clever and inspirational people who all have one thing in common – they have the same passion for work. It is these people that make me love and respect my job and my profession.

In summary, Ridge is a really good place to start your professional career as a graduate. They offer great encouragement, help us to develop ourselves, allow our confidence to grow and encourage us to be challenged, motivated and inspired in the workplace. Ridge makes the experience very enjoyable and the support I have received has taught me a lot during these last few years.”
