Previous experience 1986-2001

Prior to practising from my own office, I had been employed at BETAPLAN SA, in the period of 1988 through 2001.   The works in which I participated were mostly large-scale institutional buildings, taken on by large work groups.   The projects in which I had significant participation, either as one of the main architects or the project coordinator are listed below in evidence of experience gained in the relevant building types and in their design management.
In recognition of the above experience I was listed in the state Registry of Building Professionals (compiled by the Ministry of Public Works), as Architect-Designer class C, starting in the year 2000 - the highest capability class for individuals.

Below is a table of the major projects of that period.
Dissclaimer: the reference to "BETAPLAN" may not constitute a complete reference to all participants, in some cases.
