Team spotlight – meet Mohsen Layeghi

18th Dec 2023

The Agilité team is full of the most experienced global talent from the wide-ranging world of design, build, construction and project management. Every month, we spotlight members of our team, to share their passions, interests and ambitions. Closing out 2023 is Mohsen Layeghi, our assistant project manager. Read on to find out why he is obsessed with timekeeping, and where his country to work from is…

1. Describe your job in one paragraph.

Generally speaking, as an assistant project manager it’s my responsibility to help the project manager to achieve their day-to-day goals. This involves communicating with clients and subcontractors, ensuring every problem is being addressed, change orders are being placed and that no stone is left unturned.

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

If I had to choose, I’d say “caring”. Being a kind and considerate person to my colleagues is of high importance to me. It benefits all of us, in just the same way that working to a high standard does.

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

Agilité prioritises getting the job done in a given timeframe. Many businesses aim to work to tight schedules, but in practice, this is easier said than done, and something we can all be proud of.

4. You have worked in some amazing places around the world. Which has been your favourite?

Out of all of them, Amsterdam! It may not be the most exotic, but it is an amazing place to spend time and work.

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

Definitely when I realised I was able to rise – and thrive – in the face of a challenge! Our project for Lululemon (in Amsterdam) needed to be delivered in under six weeks, and it was incredibly satisfying to see the team’s hard work pay off!

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

We already work with my dream client, General Motors! And, while Agilité has delivered projects elsewhere in Europe for General Motors, the dream for me would be to work on something for them in Berlin.

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

Three things: Firstly, make sure you’re in touch with local consultants about the local regulations and structural capacity of the building. Secondly, plan ahead with building materials, as some products may not be available in certain locations, or will have a lengthy lead time – so take advice from your contractors. And finally, expect changes! If you don’t, you’ll risk not delivering the project on time.

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

Spending time with my wife.

9. What’s next for Agilité?

Agilité has made tremendous progress in attracting clients and projects in different parts of the EU. Going forward, I’d love for us to welcome repeat work for these clients, and be able to grow our team and in newer locations, such as across Germany.

10. 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?

I think concrete is a big issue, as it needs a huge amount of water and energy, but using alternatives such as Pozzolan Concrete or fly ashes concrete can make a big difference. The second factor – which also can be used in non-structural sectors of construction – is limiting transportation by designing and sourcing building or fitout materials from local suppliers. It doesn’t make sense to source an environmentally-friendly material from hundreds of kilometres away, so a pragmatic approach is needed.
