“I just love the atmosphere in the team”
It was at age 16 that Christophe found his way: “A career adviser told me about the profession of surveyor/topographer, and I was hooked on the idea.” After graduating from college he was hired by a surveyor’s office to work on the Lyon tram project. “It was an internal audit assignment for Colas, which made it my first contact with the Group,” he recalls. He then joined the office of a consulting engineer in the construction sector. It changed his life: “I immediately found public works really appealing.” On returning home to his girlfriend in Montpellier, he was contacted by Sacer Sud-Est, via the French national public works federation.
He is now a project supervisor. He tends to prefer working on private-sector contracts: “They are often less complete and leave a certain amount of latitude in project design.” Christophe gets on well with his colleagues. “I just love the atmosphere in the team. It makes you want to become part of it and contribute to the team spirit.”
