Knowing the what, when and how of complex expansions takes practical experience
Gim grew up in Malaysia, pursued her Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Manchester and later returned to the United Kingdom, as a Chevening Scholar, to complete her Master in Medical Electronics and Physics at the University of London.
After completing her Bachelors, Gim was recruited to the Singapore Economic Development Board where she advanced the establishment of manufacturing and business operations of companies from the United States, Europe, and Japan in Singapore.
She then worked in Malaysia on multiple large civil engineering flood control and water supply projects.
Her move to the United States in 2005, also marked her first entry into life science facilities projects. Since then, she has worked on hundreds of thousands of square feet of labs, drug manufacturing and offices for a variety of biotechs such as Gilead, Zymergen, PDL BioPharma (now AbbVie) and Impax.
While at German engineering and construction firm, M+W Zander (now Exyte) she started working with tech giants Microsoft and Google on data center site selection, design and construction. She later went on to join Google and build out a variety of data centers from the hyperscale 900+ acre site in Council Bluffs, IA, to edge scale Google Cloud data centers across the globe.
But it's not all about processes working well — it's about working well with people
Having lived and worked in Asia, Europe and the Americas, Gim has developed a global professional network and deep understanding of what it takes to run projects across borders. She knows how business is done, how everyday life is lived, and how to connect with the people on the ground who will be designing and constructing your facilities.
Not only has Gim worked on a varied set of projects, she has also worked on the Project Owner side, Engineering firm side, Construction company side and in Government.
