Hi, I am Diaa Elgebaly

MEP Design Manager

Mechanical Consultant

Sustainability Consultant

I'm a mechanical engineer who graduated from Helwan University in Egypt back in 2006. Since then, I've dedicated my career to the field of Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) systems in the consultation and construction industry, specializing in the mechanical side.

Throughout my journey, I've worn many hats – contractor, designer, consultant, mechanical design leader, and most recently, MEP design manager. This diverse experience has given me a holistic view of the field and allowed me to tackle complex projects head-on.

Mega-scale projects across the MENA region have been my professional playground, particularly healthcare facilities. Leading a dedicated mechanical design team, I've overseen the design of over 50 hospitals, ranging from intimate 100-bed facilities to sprawling 1700-bed medical cities. Each project presented unique challenges and opportunities, constantly pushing the boundaries of my expertise.

Beyond design, I'm passionate about sustainability. As part of SCG, I helped establish a dedicated sister company focused on sustainable practices in 2012. Together, we've achieved LEED Certification for numerous projects, with the Mall of Egypt and City Center Almaza standing out as true landmarks, both earning LEED Gold certification.
