Concrete NZ Welcomes Enrique del Rey Castillo
Monday, 4 June 2018
At the beginning of 2018 Concrete NZ welcomed to the team Dr Enrique del Rey Castillo as Structural Engineering Fellow.
Enrique obtained a Master of Engineering in structural engineering at the Polytechnic University of Madrid in Spain, his home town. He then joined the Structural Analysis of Historical Construction’s (SAHC) Master programme to develop his knowledge of advanced structural design, seismic actions and the behaviour of existing heritage buildings.
This Masters is co-jointly taught at two universities in Europe, which saw him study in both the Czech Republic and Portugal. Enrique’s research experience motivated him to enrol at the University of Auckland to complete a PhD in seismic strengthening of concrete structures with Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP).
He is now a lecturer at the University of Auckland, while holding the Concrete NZ Structural Engineering Fellow role.
Enrique is dedicated to preparing the next generation of engineers to excel in reinforced concrete design and to further enhance the industry’s knowledge and use of reinforced concrete.
