Ruvinde completed his education at University College London. He is a Chartered Construction Manager and a Member of the Association of Project Management. He joined Laminar after developing his experience with tier one principal contractors and high end residential & commercial developers. He has worked on a wide portfolio of projects ranging from £40m – £800m through various stages of the project lifecycle. His typical projects ranged from high rise developments with complex basements, clean rooms, filming studios to heavy civils.

Statement:

"The discussions around mental health has become more prevalent in the recent years. However our industry should do more to support those who are working “on the tools” and relying on tomorrow’s pay slip to make their ends meet. There is still further scope to educate and elevate the issues arising from mental health in an industry where focus and concentration is paramount onsite."
