At 23, Carolyn Cox was managing a $24 million construction. Now at 26 she has set her sights on a build worth twice that.
At 26, a former accounting student who leapt into construction on a gut feeling is now in charge of building a $50 million retirement village with up to 200 workers a day.
The Brisbane woman said she was studying accounting at university when she walked past a construction site on her way to an exam one day.
“I pretty quickly worked out that this probably wasn’t what I wanted and I was literally walking to one of the exams for accounting and I walked past a really big construction site in the city,” she said.
