I am a dynamic and proactive person with the desire to team work, developing and putting into practice the knowledge acquired during my work experience and training. I have reached an extensive knowledge in all the related to construction and civil engineering and I am really keen on continue learning as much as possible, especially in tunnelling and maritime engineering.
As an engineer, I consider myself to be hard-working and capable to analyse and manage harsh situations even under stress. Furthermore, not only am I a Chartered Member of the Spanish Institution of Civil Engineers (CICCP) but I do also look forward to become a Chartered Member of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
Civil Design Engineer @ From August 2015 to Present (5 months) London, United KingdomShift Manager for BFK Joint Venture at Crossrail C300/410 @ Taking place in Bond Street Station for the Crossrail project in London, I was in charge of managing the Platform Tunnel enlargement of the existing TBM driven pilot tunnels as well as the construction of various SCL and non-SCL station tunnels and running tunnel cross passages.
These works involved planning and executing not only the excavation and primary lining of the tunnels but also the application of waterproofing and secondary lining layers.
With a strong focus on safety and efficiency my duties included:
- Managing and allocating site and geotechnical engineers, surveyors, workforce and sub-contractors.
- Ensuring drawings and specification documents provided sufficient and accurate information for construction.
- Writing Method Statements and Risk Assessments for the activities involved in the construction process and ensuring the construction practices were in line with them.
- Recording accurately the progress, resources and materials used for the development of the works on a daily basis. From January 2014 to August 2015 (1 year 8 months) London, United KingdomProduction Engineer, Highways @ This job took place at the ‘Duplication of the road and reparation of the existing one between Loboguerrero and Buenaventura and 7 bridges construction’ (Colombia). This road has the highest heavy vehicle index in Colombia and connects Buenaventura's port, the biggest in its Pacific coast, with the rest of the country.
I was in charge of a 50x100 m² car park and its 300 m two-lane road access. My duties were to programme these works, dealing with the sub-contractors involved in the construction of the car park and assisting workers in the correct execution of the works. I also managed the relations with the plant sub-contractors and the material suppliers for the road construction.
As well as this I had to develop and implement a methodology to efficiently manage the cost control for the project, since no procedure had been adopted yet. From October 2013 to January 2014 (4 months) Production Engineer, Tunnels @ My main activities were to assist the site manager in his production duties in ‘Madrid’s Underground Line 9 extension’ (Spain). These activities were developed at two different levels: administrative and technical.
The administrative tasks included works’ execution planning and control, machinery administration along the works and compiling data of the progress of the works on each site to be able to develop an exhaustive cost control.
The technical tasks were related to developing the compensation grouting and drainage studies when required, quality control and real site measuring to enable a reliable cost control.
As this works involved tunneling and underground building I acquired wide knowledge in the different methodologies applied in subterranean works such as cut and cover or the Belgian tunnelling method. From June 2013 to October 2013 (5 months) Madrid Area, SpainResearcher @ Research about the influence of port railway infrastructures in Valencia’s port development throughout its history, emphasizing in the last decades to define the importance of improving them.
For the correct development of the studies and to favour the achievement of the set targets all the tasks should be framed in three basic tasks: identification and definition of the factors involved; homogenisation and study of the classified as significant data; and analysis of the results and proposals.
Due to the large load of technical information, a wide knowledge of civil engineering principals was required to be able to select correctly the interesting data to be considered in order to deliver the work meeting the imposed deadlines. From February 2012 to December 2012 (11 months) Valencia, Spain
