Yiannis Pericleous has a background in structural and geotechnical engineering and is the Managing Partner of
A. J. Pericleous LLC, an awarded engineering practice based in Cyprus specializing in high end structural and civil engineering design since 1938.
He was born in 1978 in Limassol, Cyprus. He studied Civil Engineering in the National Technical University of Athens from where he graduated in 2003 with focus in structural and geotechnical engineering. He then continued his studies at Cornell University from where he graduated in 2004 with an MEng degree in Structural engineering. Later enrolled to the Professional MBA program of the University of Cyprus from which he graduated in 2008. He is a Chartered Engineer of the Engineering Council of UK, member of the Institution of Structural Engineers of UK and a licensed engineer in Cyprus and Greece, member of ETEK and TEE.
He has a diverse experience in engineering projects, such as high-rise buildings, industrial buildings, theatres, retrofit and seismic upgrade of structures, aqueous liquids structures, deep excavations, deep foundations, ports and airports. During the last years he has carried out the structural design and supervised the construction of numerous high-rise buildings, some of which are up to 180m tall.
He is in a constant pursue of engineering challenges and gaining continuously experience and knowledge to follow the fast pace with which engineering is changing.
In this respect, he will be talking at the Conference about
Futurizing building construction in Cyprus
Cyprus underwent a large booming in construction since 2016, with high-rise, ultra-modern buildings being the most notable characteristic of this boom. The presentation will be discussing how the construction and engineering evolved in Cyprus because of these projects, and how modern digital technologies have pushed the limits of the industry of the country.
