The decision to take on a summer internship with Fletcher while on summer break from her Bachelor of Architecture shaped Gazelle's career.
An eight week stint at the Wellington Regional Hospital project ignited her passion for construction, so when she was offered a cadetship at the end of the summer break, she grabbed it. The two year programme introduced her to all aspects of the industry, including estimating, quantity surveying, programming, tender submissions and developing construction methodologies. During the final year of her cadetship Gazelle managed the fitout of the Datacom building in Central Wellington, which involved the internal demolition and re-fit of two 10 storey towers, and a floor extension between the two towers.
Since joining us fulltime, Gazelle has managed the seismic strengthening of a 61-storey tower, and various interior fitouts.
