West Midlands Chair


I work as a SHEQ Advisor for JN Bentley, with experience in environmental management, carbon reduction and social value.

My role primarily focuses on conducting environmental support visits across a range of projects to champion environmental initiatives, offer assistance and guidance where needed. On a day-to-day basis, every day is different as each project is unique or has its own set of different challenges too!

As part of the G4C Midlands committee, I support the committee in organising and hosting events, chairing meetings, and working with the wider Constructing Excellence group.

I hope to use my skills to continue the successful work achieved by the current committee but also expand our events to individuals in higher education; explore opportunities to operate outside of Birmingham and secure sponsorship so that the group can continue to deliver events for our members free of charge.



Molly Shaw


Midlands Vice Chair


I am an architectural design assistant at One Creative Environments, a multidisciplinary office, which has embedded the ethos of ‘teamwork’ into me. My role has focused on an array of projects including residential, commercial, and mostly healthcare. Following on from my University days as mental health champion for the Snowsports committee, I have helped build a great wellbeing team at One, where we organise events and CPD sessions to improve mental and physical health of staff.

My passion for construction stemmed from my interest in Victorian houses, with the intricate and well thought out details to the buildings. Throughout my path in architecture this has developed, and my interests widened to designing for ‘people’ and the involvement of urban design into the process, I then went on to write a dissertation that approached the idea of ‘walkable cities’ and its impact to the wellbeing of the citizens and it became apparent how important the 15-minute city is becoming, I therefore am eager in embedding these elements into the next generation of the construction industry.
