Sharjeel is a passionate structural engineer currently working at Mott MacDonald Hong Kong as a Principle Structural Engineer in the Bridges and Civil Structures team and structural design lead for the Hong Kong Airport Authority consultancy project 3138, Automated People Mover (APM) and Baggage Handling System (BHS) Tunnels and Ancillary Buildings, comprising of a 2.5km cut-and-cover tunnel, 5 ancillary buildings, and alteration and addition (A&A) works in the existing tunnels. His diligent work, problem-solving attitude, and client management skills on the project qualified him to take up this role even as a young engineer.
He graduated with a BEng in Civil Engineering and started working at Arup Hong Kong. During his 5+ year career at Arup, he worked on a variety of large-scale multidisciplinary projects such as the Organic Waste Treatment Facility Phase 1, Lantau, Hong Kong, and the Galaxy Cotai Resort Phase 3, Macau, among other residential and commercial projects. During his employment, he also did a part-time MSc in Structural Engineering, with his dissertation focusing on the structural behaviour and design of thin-shelled reinforced concrete dome structures.
For over a year, he was also deployed as an assistant resident engineer in Macau to monitor and carry out quality supervision on fast-paced hotel/casino construction sites during site formation, foundations, ELS and basement, and superstructure works in both steel and reinforced concrete, including post-tensioned concrete and steel-RC composite structures.
Sharjeel is interested in digital development and technical excellence to promote best practices. He has completed the Global BIM Manager course and is currently taking up the role of Digital Champion for the Mott MacDonald Bridges and Civil Structures practice in the Greater China region. He is a major advocate of equality, diversity, and inclusion and has championed EDI initiatives during his employment. Sharjeel also works actively in mentoring junior engineers and preparing them for the chartership review, as well as promoting passion in engineering. He loves the idea of total engineering and efficiency in design and advocates this ideology in all his designs and projects as part of lean and sustainable engineering.
