“What I like about working at KDC is that, I can be passionate about how we, as a commercial RE developer, can influence/integrate/offer new and sustainable cutting-edge practices to our developments, for our clients and for improving communities. The KDC culture encourages us to follow our passions, be forward thinkers and problem solvers.”
