April 2018

Happy new year! May 2018 bring you abundance of creativity, inspiration, and sustainable ideas. We look forward to exploring joint business opportunities for design and engineering consultancy services in 2018.

In the meantime we have some news to share. While we are sad to say goodbye to Nathalie De Spiegeleire and Silah Karim, we are excited about a new team joining us from February 1, 2018 onward.

Nathalie and Silah have been instrumental in setting up and managing the B-DNA office for the past 3 years. They will soon be moving on to other professional opportunities and are in the midst of managing a smooth handover to the new B-DNA team. We would like to thank them for their professionalism, dedication, and resourcefulness and wish them all the best in their future endeavors. 

We're happy to introduce the new team to you: Adrien Reymondet will be joining B-DNA as managing director and Tjan Weilin as administration and business executive. 

Adrien is an old friend of B-DNA and has been involved in it since its conception. Most of you will already know him in his capacity as project manager of AAVO Architects, B-DNA's partner specialized in industrial architectural design. He is a civil engineer with ~5 years work experience in project management in Europe. He graduated from INSA Lyon (FR) and did an exchange program at the National University of Singapore in 2013. Adrien knows Singapore well and moving back here to spearhead B-DNA feels like returning home. 

Tjan Weilin has a BSc in accounting and finance from the University of London International Program and ~8 years work experience in the hospitality and F&B industry. She is fascinated by the built environment and passionate about architectural and engineering design.

We wish them all the best in taking B-DNA to the next level!
