As a structural engineer, I believe that in the best projects different disciplines will reinforce each other. I am particularly interested in the interaction between construction, architecture and sustainability. This is partly because of my background. In 2014, I graduated from Technical University Eindhoven as a structural designer and architect. In practice, this means that I understand the language of designers and can translate it into constructive solutions.
What I do at ABT
After completing my education, I joined ABT as a structural engineer. I now work as a structural engineer project manager of challenging utility construction projects. In recent years, I have worked on projects of various sizes, with diverse materials and in different functions. They include hospitals, educational buildings and residential construction. I have experience with both existing construction and new construction. I like the challenges and I am keen to make all the puzzle pieces fall into place. This is what it takes to complete assignments successfully. The piece of the puzzle that I contribute as a structural engineer is sustainable use of materials.
My dream for the future
To me as a structural engineer, sustainable use of materials is the most important technological issue today. To combat climate change, much will have to change throughout the industry. It is my dream of the future that the building and construction sector will succeed in substantially reducing our impact. This requires a process of awareness, prioritization and innovation.
