Building Architectural Engineer with Master Degree in Construction Engineering Architecture achieved in 2015 at the "Sapienza" University of Rome.

During the University course, design laboratories and workshops groups have contributed not only to the acquisition of the excellent relational capabilities and strong propensity to teamwork, but above all to adequate training in Architectural Design and Construction. 

Fundamentally important for the development of increasingly complex structures has been the use of BIM software, such as Revit and Navisworks, for their ability and speed in handling large amounts of data, useful not only for optimizing time, thanks to developing strong computational design skills, but above all for controlling many aspects of the project.

Thanks to the curiosity and the interest in this new methodology, I found the opportunity to participate in an engaging experience, fundamental to my professional affirmation. In the expansion project Santiago, de Chile airport, working for the General Contractor, I had the opportunity to work closely with all stakeholders of a major international project, from the internal departments of Architecture and construction engineering up to the different sub-contractors and the client.

Participating in the implementation of BIM processes, exploring and analyzing the various work methodologies to find smarter way, has been a huge opportunity to interact with the various departments that surround the project getting the perception of the whole Works. Above all my strong experience was achieved working as design and pre-construction (Synthesis) Coordinator integrating all the discipline and playing a critical role in the border between technical department and construction on field. That role show me the linear method of general coordination from the conception to the execution, and of course a good knowledge of technical construction.

In a parallel way, I was in charged to implement strategies for BIM Department of corporate company in Rome. Experienced lessons learned and best practices became the base to develop BIM for different needs and contingencies.
