Henriette Falk Olesen / Competence Manager / Sustainability / DGNB Auditor / Architect
If you have ideas and visions that can benefit the company, there is room to explore them. Responsibility and development are a must, and you get a chance to test your wings before you have to choose your career path. If you demonstrate that you’re good at something, you are allowed to have responsibility – my own case is one example of this.
Room for evolvement
Henriette Falk Olesen is a civil engineer with a specialization in architecture, and since 2011 has had her daily routine at Årstiderne Arkitekter – today Sweco Architects. A state-supported internship was the start of her career, first with a project appointment as a sketching architect, then project manager and now as one of our competence managers within sustainability and DGNB auditors. This year, Henriette can celebrate its 10th anniversary – and there is a very special reason for that.
Henriette’s interest in sustainable construction and certifications came in connection with a larger project, Innovest Skjern, of which she was allowed to be a central part as a young architect. So central that she was responsible for completing the project’s certification. In 2018, Henriette was trained as a DGNB consultant within sustainability certification of urban areas, which was part of the architect division’s focus on a holistic approach to sustainable construction.
Henriette can, among other things, write housing projects such as Kunstnerkarreen and Greensquare Garden in Copenhagen on the CV as a DGNB auditor, where the latter today is Denmark’s largest DGNB gold-certified residential building. In collaboration with her colleagues in sustainability, Henriette has been responsible for mapping Sweco’s projects based on the UN’s 17 World Goals, which has resulted in the publication “Together on a more sustainable future – Sweco and the UN’s World Goals”.
