Celebrating International Women’s Day with The Build Bristol Group


Month: March 2024

By Hannah Walkiewicz

In a world where steel structures and concrete foundations dominate skylines, it's often easy to overlook the women who play pivotal roles in shaping our built environment.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, it’s a fitting time to shine a spotlight on the incredible women behind our brand. Including designers and suppliers, those we choose to work with are a testament to the fact that there is no limit to what women can accomplish.

The statistics speak volumes: in an industry predominantly occupied by men, women make up only a fraction of the workforce. A mere 10.3 percent of construction professionals are women, with even fewer found on the front lines of job sites. But here at The Build Bristol Group, we defy those odds. We proudly stand as the only female-led and owned design and build company in Bristol.

Yesterday, we hosted a lunch to celebrate the remarkable women who contribute their expertise, creativity, and determination to our projects. It was a moment of solidarity, where stories were shared, success was celebrated, and aspirations were ignited.

For Hannah Walkiewicz, the journey to founding The Build Bristol Group hasn’t been without its challenges. In an industry where male-led competitors often dominate the landscape, she’s had to carve her own path. But through perseverance and a steadfast commitment to excellence, she’s proven time and again that gender is no barrier to success.

As we mark International Women’s Day, let us not only celebrate the achievements of women in construction but also redouble our efforts to create a more inclusive and equitable industry. Let us continue to break ground, both literally and figuratively, until every woman can reach her full potential.

In the words of Eleanor Roosevelt, “Well-behaved women seldom make history.” And here at The Build Bristol Group, we’re proud to push industry boundaries to achieve the very best results. We’re trailblazers, pioneers, and visionaries—and we’re just getting started. So, here’s to the women who build our world, one brick at a time. Happy International Women’s Day, 2024.
