A CIVIL engineer from Horndean is celebrating his quarter-century with one company.
Steve Smith, who works Persimmon Homes South Coast’s head office in Fareham has chalked up 25 years in the house building industry, all of which have been with Persimmon.
The 54-year-old worked in local government for six years after leaving university, before joining Persimmon in 1987 working in the technical department looking after engineering aspects of developments.
He now looks after handing over responsibility of the roads, sewers, open spaces and street lighting of developments once all properties are sold.
Steve says his long service is due to the people he has worked with over the years, and the changing nature of the industry.
He said: ‘The time has just flown by. I thoroughly enjoy working with Persimmon and I’m glad I’ve been able to progress a career I enjoy. The industry has changed during the last 25 years, but my milestone demonstrates how careers can be built in this industry.’
