Adrian Cassar graduated from the Faculty of the Built Environment with a Masters in Structural Engineering in 2018. After experiences in engineering and project management on construction sites in Malta he then studied a second masters in Barcelona - International Cooperation Sustainable Emergency Architecture. This led Adrian to work on rural projects in Peru and Kenya. After a year of research with a local architecture office in Kenya, Adrian was entrusted to manage and supervise the Cross Laminated Timber prototype - a house design of 50 square meters to promote the use of timber in the regional sector. Throughout the design process Adrian gained invaluable experience whilst consulting with UK engineers and on-site with German & South African contractors.
