About the event
🏗️ Material sourcing in construction plays a crucial role in determining the overall sustainability and environmental impact of a project. Throughout this webinar, we explore current challenges and opportunities for responsible and strategic material sourcing in construction. Our guest speaker is Adrian Cassar, who is an Engineer in Timber Structure.
🎓 Adrian Cassar is a highly accomplished professional with a passion for sustainable architecture and timber engineering. In 2018, Adrian obtained a Master's degree in Structural Engineering from the Faculty of the Built Environment. Drawing on his expertise, he embarked on a fulfilling journey encompassing diverse roles in engineering and project management on construction sites in Malta.
🚀 Driven by a desire to make a tangible impact on the world, Adrian pursued further education, earning a second Master's degree in International Cooperation Sustainable Emergency Architecture in Barcelona. This invaluable experience propelled him towards engaging in rural development projects in Peru and Kenya, where he actively contributed to the improvement of local communities.
🌱 During his time in Kenya, Adrian immersed himself in extensive research while collaborating with a local architecture office. Recognising his capabilities, he was entrusted with the responsibility of managing and supervising the construction of a Cross Laminated Timber prototype. This innovative 50-square-meter house design aimed to promote the utilisation of timber within the regional construction sector. Throughout the design process, Adrian had the privilege of consulting with esteemed engineers from the UK and working closely with contractors from Germany and South Africa, acquiring invaluable insights and expertise.
👣 Continuing his journey, Adrian has recently relocated to the Netherlands, where he seeks to further enrich his knowledge and skills in sustainable and timber engineering with LUNING, a renowned group of timber specialists. In this dynamic environment, Adrian remains dedicated to advancing sustainable practices.
