Working with KLH
A short interview with – Adam Wildi, Senior Project Director, Stage One
“I first was introduced to Kirsten whilst working on the Olympic tender, as Project Director of Horse Guards Parade and the beach volleyball 2011 through to 2012. It struck me immediately that Kirsten leads KLH in real hands on sustainability; she talks in real terms, implementing real change to an event or project. It is more than the metrics for KLH. Kirsten forms part of the management team which differs from the usual bolt on consultancy, meaning that cost benefit goals are set out and achieved in spades, the situation becomes more sustainable as a whole because of this.
The objectives we had to meet on the Olympics were demanding and KLH got us there admirably and Kirsten didn’t make the process feel onerous and as a result we achieved more than was required by LOCOG.
I am personally concerned with the nature of demountable architecture and as such I understood that this partially meets sustainability targets, however I value Kirsten’s commitment to her work and I continue to consult with KLH on other projects.
