Project Engineer, Eckersley O'Callaghan
After completing a six month internship at Eckersley O’Callaghan in early 2019, Rocco joined the company as a graduate engineer later that year. He forms part of Eckersley O’Callaghan facade engineering group, capitalising on the building engineering knowledge he gained during his master degree in Building Engineering at Politecnico di Milano. Whilst at university during the internship, Rocco completed a thesis on blast resistant facade design. He now applies the knowledge he gained to assist the facade team with this specialism, as well as create technical notes on the topic for company wide circulation. After contributing to international project such as the first Apple stone in India, now he is focusing on many London refurbishment projects with the aim to improve the façade performances to meet the new standards and requirements but at the same time trying to maintain the authenticity of the existing buildings.
