A civil engineering graduate of the National University of Cordoba in Argentina, Esteban works as a structural engineer within the Prendos design team.
Born and raised in Catamarca, Esteban first encountered New Zealand as a college exchange student and enjoyed the experience so much he decided to return and seek residency when sufficiently qualified.
Following graduation Esteban worked for two mid-size design companies in Cordoba on projects outsourced from countries as far apart as Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the USA. Over a period of several years he gained considerable experience in the use of structural modelling software such as SAP, ETABS and RAM, working on various residential and commercial design scenarios and employing a wide range of conventional construction materials.
Esteban particularly enjoys the indoor/outdoor nature of his work, as well as the intellectual and social aspects. He is mindful of the need to understand and resolve structural design problems efficiently and in line with client requirements, and believes the key to a project’s success is good communication and interaction between everyone involved.
Outside of work, Esteban enjoys playing tennis and soccer, going hiking, watching movies and reading.
