Krzysztof Wojslaw is the winner of EFCA Future Leaders 2021
Bridge engineer Krzysztof is the winner of the prestigious award for Europe’s most talented engineer.
Krzysztof Wojslaw has worked at Sweco since 2016 and is a specialist in parametric design and Virtual Design and Construction, VDC. In 2020, the Norwegian Association of Consulting Engineers (RIF) named him Young Consultant of the Year.
“This is awesome. This award shows people that we are setting the standard – not only for Sweco, but for the whole industry,” says the happy prize-winner.
What do you think was the main reason you won?
“I was lucky to be part of the E6 Arnkvern-Moelv project (the first bridges in Norway to be delivered without any drawings) and then to work on the Randselva bridge, which is the world’s largest model-based structure. The learning curve has been steep and full of challenges. I was part of the team set up to tackle these challenges, and we organised a hackathon where we brought several Sweco countries together to work on the issues facing the project. This was a new way of working for us, and I think the hackathon was a factor behind this nomination. Besides, I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredibly talented people. Øyvind Ulvestad, BIM developer at Sweco in Norway, has been like a godfather to me for four years, and it has been a great partnership.
I want to thank my managers Amund Geicke and Kjetil Rørvik for their trust in me. When I started talking about parametric design, no one knew what I was talking about. I’ve gained people’s confidence, and it’s paid off for me.”
“It makes me incredibly proud and happy that Krzysztof is the winner of EFCA Future Leaders. We have a strong professional background in parametric design in Sweco Norway, and Krzysztof has excelled in this for a long time. He is a great asset to us – and a well-deserved winner. Congratulations, Krzysztof,” says Grete Aspelund, President of Sweco Norway.
