Sarah joined Altro in 2019 as a Specification Consultant covering Birmingham and the East Midlands. At Altro Sarah supports architects, interior designers, estates teams, end users, building surveyors, civil and structural engineering practices throughout the construction project to ensure success.
After completing her A levels (and not knowing what to study at University) she went straight out into the working world with what was intended to be a gap year.
After interviewing for an administration role at an Underfloor Heating Company she was invited back for a second interview to join the technical sales team designing UFH and heating systems. Following a six month round the world sabbatical she moved on to a firm that focused not only on UFH but also low carbon systems such as solar panels and heat pumps. A high level role at a screed and UFH firm; which predominantly focused on residential projects; came next which was then followed with a move into the commercial and manufacturing world.
She now has nearly 20 years’ experience in the construction industry in various roles including Estimator, Head of Technical Sales, Design & Specification Manager and Director.
