"I have really enjoyed working with the teams of energetic and enthusiastic engineers at Beca."
In 1991, after graduating from her first degree, Christina joined Sim Bee Teck and Associates, now called SBT Consultants and accredited checkers, as a Civil and Structural Engineer. In 1998, she was promoted to Senior Engineer and was made an Associate Partner in 2001. In 2007, Christina joined Beca Singapore as a Manager and within the year she was promoted to her current position as a Director.
During the past 17 years of her professional engineering training, she has designed and supervised projects ranging from residential, industrial to institutional buildings. She is currently actively involved in the redevelopment of Collyer Quay in Singapore, mixed developments in Binh Duong Province in Vietnam and accredited checking on Neste Oil in Singapore.
Christina feels that the professional engineering training and experience which an engineer can attain is very often related to their working environment. The nature of the firm which they are working in, the management policies and system of the firm, the degree of responsibility, exposure and guidance given, the nature of the projects involved and the amount of time given for designing the project all contribute to the quality of the training and experience which an engineer can gain.
Christina’s wealth of working experience has giving her the opportunity and exposure to work on many interesting projects right from inception to completion. She has gained invaluable experience in design, site supervision, project management, general conditions of contracts, relevant government rules and regulations, codes of practice and procedures in Building Plans submission.
Christina graduated from the National University of Singapore with a degree in Civil Engineering in 1991. She further obtained a Master degree in Building Science from the National University of Singapore in 1999. She was elected as a Member of the Institution of Engineers Singapore in 1995, and in 2005 became a Senior Member. She has been a registered Professional Engineer in Singapore since March 2007.
