You told me you’re on a mission. Please explain.
– After I graduated as a building engineer, I joined a construction company in the Netherlands and worked in several positions at the company to learn the entire building process and see first-hand how the industry works. I quickly noticed a discrepancy between the people designing the buildings (architects) and the people building them (construction companies). The architects wondered “Why don’t they build it as we’ve designed it?”, and the construction companies wondered “Why don’t they design it so we can actually build it?”
