‘Housebuilding is no longer an industry just for men’: meet the women lobbying to save a troubled sector

by Christopher Hammond

A new campaign is taking aim at part of the property sector’s pressing image problem

There are currently only 297,000 women working in the UK’s construction industry, compared to some 1.8 million men.

A new campaign fronted by seven women who work in housebuilding is lobbying to change that.

Called I Am A Housebuilder, the initiative seeks to raise the profile of women in the industry, attract more women to apply for roles, create a mentoring network to help women into senior roles, and promote the sector to those who may not have considered it.

"Housebuilding is no longer an industry just for men. Women bring a level of creativity and empathy to housebuilding that I think really benefits the end homeowner."

Georgina Hammond, co-founder and director of developers Beau Property.
