Sustainability Consultant

I am a mechanical engineer graduated in Helawan University, Egypt in 2006. Since that, I am working in the field of Consultation and Construction of MEP works, specialized in mechanical department.

I have gone through a number of phases in my career, working as contractor, designer, consultant, mechanical design leader, and recently MEP design manager.

I have worked in many mega-scaled projects in MENA region in different applications, but the most interesting one is the healthcare facilities. I was leading the mechanical design team specialized in the design of mechanical system of healthcare facilities. We have together accomplished the design of more than 50 hospitals in different scales starting from 100bed hospital to 1700bed hospital as a medical city.

One of the field I have been working in, is the Sustainability Consultation. In SCG, we have established a sister company in 2012 specialized in the Sustainability services and we have accomplished the LEED Certification for many projects, but the two landmarks were Mall of Egypt and City Center Almaza, which both have been certified as LEED Gold.
