A motivated Structural Engineer with 12 years experience in design and supervision of construction of a wide range of building projects across Indonesia. Projects are both large and small, and include commercial, industrial, resorts and high rise. Ucok was a structural drafter for several years prior to studying engineering. One of Ucok’s many strengths is his genuine enjoyment of engineering problem solving, and particularly delving into the background to how things are done and why.
Why did you become an engineer?
My father ran a small contracting business when I was a child and he often brought me to site. I found this very exciting, especially seeing the work completed and telling people that you built the project. So after high school I enrolled in Civil Engineering at the University of Indonesia.
What is a standout project in your career to date?
Pirelli Tyre Factory project – it’s the largest project I’ve completed so far. We helped Leighton Contractors win the tender by bringing value to their bid. We also got the opportunity to work with the Pirelli engineering team from Italy.
