Team spotlight – meet Fabio Duarte

2nd Jun 2023

We’ve worked hard to recruit some of the most experienced global talent from the world of design, build, construction and project management.

Each month, we put one of our colleagues in the spotlight so you can learn a little more about their role…

Next up, it’s accounting assistant, Fabio Duarte.

1. Describe your job in one paragraph

As part of the finance team, my day-to-day role sees me performing accounting duties ranging from bookkeeping to client invoicing. My specialties lie in accounting, financial analysis and management, commercial correspondence and HR, and I work closely with our financial controller, Charles Delhaye.

2. Which one word would colleagues use to describe you?

Available. I try to be as helpful to my teammates as possible.

3. Why do you think Agilité stands out from competitors?

I think it’s our commitment to delivering excellent customer service. Throughout the entire project’s lifecycle, we maintain strong lines of communication, provide bespoke support, and ensure that the client’s wishes are being fulfilled from start to finish.

4. What’s your biggest career highlight to date?

I would say joining Agilité in the first place. It was a fantastic opportunity for me, and one that I couldn’t pass up. Starting at a company that has experienced significant growth in such a short period of time was a challenge I was very happy and excited to accept.

5. The phone rings and it’s your dream client… who is it?

It’s hard to think of one client, however, I’ve enjoyed seeing the work we’ve been doing with BIG MAMMA in Monaco, so it would be great to continue redefining spaces in the hospitality sector.

6. What key piece of advice would you give to a client planning a commercial interiors project?

Engage the help and expertise of the Agilité team — you won’t regret it.

7. When you’re not at work, where are we most likely to find you?

You can typically find me spending time with my family and friends, and more recently, I’ve been doing a lot of running as I prepare for my second marathon.

8. As an organisation with sustainability at its heart, Agilité Solutions is dedicated to minimising environmental impact within the construction industry. What do you think is the biggest challenge facing the sector, and how do you think we can rectify it?

This is a topic that I am particularly passionate about.
One of the biggest challenges facing the construction industry is the high amount of waste generated from construction projects. One quick Google research reveals that the industry is responsible for a significant amount of waste globally, at up to 40%. This waste can have a severe impact on the environment — contributing to pollution and the depletion of natural resources.

To rectify this, the industry needs to adopt sustainable building practices that reduce the amount of waste generated. This can include incorporating recyclable materials such as wood, glass, and steel into building designs, using energy-efficient appliances and equipment, and adopting methods such as prefabrication, modular construction and green roofs.

Another focus should be reducing the carbon footprint of buildings, making them energy-efficient and sustainable. This requires the adoption of renewable energy sources and the implementation of technologies that minimise consumption, such as smart building management systems and passive solar design.

In summary, the construction sector's sustainability challenges require a collaborative effort and a commitment to green practices that will minimise environmental impact. It requires collaboration between industry suppliers, contractors, and regulators to create standards and implement solutions throughout a project's lifecycle.
