Clarkebond appoints specialist to lead facade and specialist engineering team

We are delighted to announce that Omar Al-Omar has joined Clarkebond to lead our façade and specialist engineering team.

Following a strong year in 2015, increasing staff numbers and major project wins, Omar’s appointment is part of our strategy to support our clients and manage sustainable business growth. 

Omar’s broad experience across many sectors has seen him playing key roles on projects including 100 Bishopsgate London, Heathrow T5, Heart of Doha Qatar and UBS Bank headquarters. His work couples pragmatic engineering principles with advanced numerical methods to solve complex problems in materials, structural and façade engineering with a particular interest in designing resilience into the building envelope for protection against blast and thermal effects.

Omar’s specialist expertise adds greatly to Clarkebond’s historic involvement with facades, the important environmental benefits and its positive influence on both building form and function; bridging the gap between facade and building envelope.

Omar is a member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, with masters and doctoral research experience in structural dynamics and advanced numerical methods from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) and University College London (UCL).
