Valerie (Val) Lim joined the Connell Contractors team in January 2017.
Before joining the Connell Contractors team, Val's previous work experience included designing infrastructure works of mixed development projects, as well as being the Subject Matter Expert (SME) in Erosion and Sedimentation Control aspect of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) projects for the past 9 years.
Val says New Zealand is a beautiful country with amazing scenery and clean fresh air. "The people here are friendly and best of all, I can get fresh produce directly from the garden. I have started planting some herbs, vegetables and fruit trees at our new home – it is wonderful to see the plant grows and harvest them at the end of the day! This is what we do not get back home as we used to stay in a concrete jungle”. said Val. “My family and I like to go for a walk in the park - current favourite is Hamilton Lake."
The team at Connell Contractors have been very kind and helpful. “It is amazing to see the diversity in the office and how well we could work with each other. I am blessed for the opportunity given and to have the management's support in beginning my career here. I intend to make good use of my previous work experiences as well as current knowledge, in ensuring successful projects at Connell Contractors."
