The global perspective of our industry is expanding my knowledge and enabling me to learn everyday
Aline Perez Mak
As a project manager, I'm responsible for coordinating, overseeing all project work streams and stakeholders, reporting and communications, meetings and compliance. I’m also the main interface with the local client and Latin America workplace, managing design and development from project conception to final delivery.

Over the past seven years, I’ve been involved in a wide portfolio of high-end construction projects such as commercial buildings, shopping centers, residential buildings, hotels and hospitals, from concept through to move. Prior to joining Turner & Townsend, I worked as a project manager for a construction company leading large scale international projects. This experience helped me to develop technical skills, site-specific project management and improve my skills in evaluating project performance from a cost, time and scope management point of view. 

Q. What attracted you to join Turner & Townsend?

A. I discovered Turner & Townsend through a co-worker who told me a lot about the global business.

So I decided to search more online about the company and on the web site the first sentence already captivated me: "making the difference". I identified myself with that statement, and it definitely made me research even more about the company's portfolio and its activities in the construction industry.

I was impressed with the extensive and diverse portfolio which made me even more curious.

Q. Detail any specialist skills or experience for which you are known

A. My background as an architect and working as a contractor, brought me a lot of the technical skills of construction, time and cost. It also helps me dealing with the GC in partnership, since I’ve been on the other side of the table.

Q. What do you most enjoy most about working at Turner & Townsend?

A. The chairman’s group revealed to me more about the company, the culture and our leadership – it’s been a mind opening experience about our global presence and how much we are recognized as a people business. I like to be challenged and think outside the box, to improve the way that we deliver. The business’ vision of the future is definitely one of the things I most enjoy about working for Turner & Townsend.
