We are delighted to announce the appointment of our newest senior engineering BIM technician, Gilbert Dongo, who joins us with more than 15 years’ experience in the industry.

Gilbert has delivered heavy reinforced concrete projects in the past and has also previously worked alongside our own directors Stephen and Anna on the delivery of a Print Works facility in Rotherham and the first skydiving facility in the UK.

Gilbert said: “I attended the Harare Polytechnic in Zimbabwe where I gained a diploma in civil engineering structures. I’ve spent the last 18 years working for various consultancies in England. I’m thrilled to be continuing my career at BE Design – especially as it’s on my doorstep”.

“There is a real emphasis on personal development and training at BE Design, which is one of the things that really attracted me to the company. I’ve known Stephen and Anna for a number of years, and I have always found them to be very forward thinking, an ethos that one feels throughout the business and in how well they look after their staff.

“I hope to broaden my skills and increase my knowledge during my time with the company. I feel there is a strong ethos of progression and I look forward to working with and learning from such a fantastic team.”

Gilbert’s role will see him working on the detailed design of structural building elements on a number of projects including a new £100m manufacturing facility.

Director Stephen Oakden added: “We’re really pleased to welcome Gilbert to the BE Design family, we have a lot to look forward to as we continue to expand our portfolio across the UK and Europe.

“We hope the next few years will be exciting for the industry and BE Design and I wish Gilbert the best of luck in his new role.”
