I have met so many amazing colleagues who have supported and mentored me along the way.

Marta Estellés Belenguer
GRC (Glass-fibre-reinforced concrete) and Residential Director, Consolis Tecnyconta
If there is anyone who knows a lot about industrial processes optimization in Consolis, it is Marta Estellés Belenguer. With seven years in the group, she has a lot of experience of safety, quality, efficiency and sustainability.
“Safety first is a motto embedded in all our employees. Safety permeates our production chain, from one person to the next, with systemized excellence in every step,” Marta explains.
Another field that has developed rapidly is sustainability.
“Since I started at Consolis, I have been doing research relating to alternative binders. I have also been monitoring the processes for design and factory mix. Over the years, I have seen how the focus has switched towards more environmental-friendly solutions in all our companies. Today, we have precast concrete that reduces CO2 emissions by 40 percent compared to traditional concrete. And we are continuously innovating new low-carbon solutions,” Marta continues.
Marta Estellés Belenguer came across Consolis in 2013 when she was looking for a Master Thesis topic as an exchange student in Finland. She had the opportunity to collaborate with Consolis’ Material Development Centre to research alternative binder systems for battery walls in Finnish factories. After completing her studies in Civil Engineering, she took up a permanent position at the Rusko laboratory, continuing the research into alternative binders and fiber-reinforced concrete.
Marta later held the position of Internal Project Manager in Finland, where the focus gradually changed towards industrial processes optimization. In that role, Marta had the opportunity to visit many of Consolis’ different business units and factories.
“I have met so many amazing colleagues who have supported and mentored me along the way. Across the Consolis Group, we have many colleagues who are very experienced in their field. It is fantastic to sit with them in a meeting or visit a factory and just absorb all the knowledge you can. Sharing best practices among us is key to driving success,” says Marta.
Recently, Marta moved to Spain and Consolis Tecnyconta, where she takes the role as GRC and Residential Director.
“In parallel with the GRC responsibility, I will coordinate the expansion of Tecnyconta to Residential market in Spain. In other countries, especially in Nordics, precast is the main construction method in residential buildings but, traditionally, in Spain, construction has been made in situ. It is a very exciting challenge to expand our business towards this sector. Again, close contact with customers is essential, as well as collaboration with local precast industry.”
I enjoy working with the modeling program we are using in Consolis and have found new ways of modeling different details.

Designer at Consolis Spæncom, Denmark
Mohamad Awad is a designer at Consolis Spæncom, which he calls his dream job. But the road to landing the position wasn’t as straightforward as he thought as when he trained to become a building engineer.
“I got my Bachelor of Architectural Technology & Construction Management in July 2015, but as I didn’t have a craft background, I found it difficult to get a job,” Mohamad explains.
So Mohamad started activating his network and looking for other job offers.
“One of my friends worked in production at Consolis Spæncom in Kolding, and he was really happy about it. I had previously sent an application to Consolis Spæncom’s Design Department, but they didn’t need people at that time. So I sent an application to production. One Sunday in September 2017, I got a call from the production manager, and after a good chat, I was told that I could start the following Tuesday. The next 14 months were really good. I joined a team of many great colleagues who shared their knowledge about casting, building moulds and many other things. However, I still dreamt of joining the design department and making use of my education,” Mohamad continues.
In November 2019, Mohamad finally landed a job in the Design department at Consolis Spæncom in Kolding, Denmark.
“Working in Production is different from working in Design. In Production, I almost had my hands in the concrete, walking back and forth in the production hall, up and down all day; a more physically demanding job. The change to working at a desk on your PC all day, drawing and modeling – it just took an extra cup of coffee at the start,” Mohamad says with a smile.
Working as a designer means that you are the one designing the element and the building’s pre-cast structure. The output is a complete 3D model of the building and detailed drawings of each element to be cast in production. Many designers have a degree in structural engineering.
The knowledge from production certainly made the on-boarding in the Design department much easier. Mohamad explains that since he has cast the elements that he is now drawing, he is well aware of the design and the details that are needed: reinforcement, products as lifting anchors, standards etc.
“I am developing every day. I enjoy working with the modeling program that we use at Consolis and have found new ways of modeling different details. Just as in production, the design team has coached me, and they never tire of my questions on how to solve different challenges.”
At the moment Mohamad is designing the wall elements for a residential project, in Solröd southwest of Copenhagen. The residential complex aims to be a sustainable pioneering project. The building will apply for Gold certification with the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
“I am very proud of contributing to a project that has such a clear sustainable ambition,” says Mohamad.
He also mentions that the customer contacted Consolis Spæncom at a very early stage in their process. Hence, it was possible to advice on the design of the precast structure and thereby enable more sustainable and cost-efficient solutions.
On a final note, Mohamad credits his colleagues for making his job so rewarding. “There is room for humor and fun, and there is room for work and focus. I have a really good time, since the first day I stepped into the office. I think it is important that you can go to work with a smile on your face. That motivates you to do something extra,” Mohamad concludes.
I like the coaching attitude, and the after work activities, there is always something going on.

Construction Designer at Strängbetong - Sweden
Kaarel Veibri is an Estonian construction designer who took the leap over the Baltic Sea to start working at Consolis Strängbetong’s office in Kungsör. He had been working as a structural engineer in Consolis’ engineering office in Estonia for three years when he applied for the job as construction engineer in Sweden. He was young, open to new challenges and had an urge to travel, so why not? He also took on the challenge to learn Swedish.
“I understand most spoken and written Swedish, but I cannot yet express myself in conversation. But I am working on it”, Kaarel explains.
“There were many things that attracted me with the role. I wanted to work with more experienced construction engineers in precast concrete, get the opportunity to explore more complex structural engineering and of course get to know other members in the Consolis family”, Kaarel continues.
As a structural engineer you are responsible for developing building structures based on the tender design that has been made.
Daily, I can see how Consolis contributes to our society – and I always feel proud.

Sales Manager, Consolis Parma - Finland
Satu Parikka works as a sales manager for precast structures in residential building solutions. She is based in Nummela, Finland, working for Consolis Parma.
“I love my job! I started working as a structural engineer in Consolis Parma and initially worked as a tender designer. But deep down I have always wished to work with sales; I think it is in my DNA. So in 2012, I told my manager that I wanted to work in sales and that is how my sales career started,” Satu explains.
A sales manager is responsible for her designated key clients and the key to success according to Satu, is to have a close contact and dialogue with the customer.
“My responsibility is to anticipate my customers’ needs, and to ensure that they get the best precast elements and structures, with good quality, as smoothly as possible. I enjoy the close contact and dialogue I have with customers. The buildings, for which we deliver precast elements, vary in design and function, and we often find a practical solution in close collaboration with the customer,” Satu continues.
