She now specialises in offices and fit-outs, and responding to project briefs for government departments who require more flexible, collaborative, and focused workspaces.

Priya has a particular affinity towards the promotion of mental health and wellbeing within the construction industry and has been a vocal advocate for both this as well as diversity and inclusion over the years.
