He has also spent years at Santiago Calatrava's studio on various international projects with complex structures, such as Al Sharq Bridge, West Bay Cable Car Station in Doha, Margaret McDermott Bridge in Dallas, Mons Railway Station in Belgium, and Rio Barra Bridge in Brazil. With a keen interest and expertise in long span roof, bridge and tall building, Dong brings his experience and passion for innovative structural design which can be combined with Cundall’s global knowledge.

Dong Chen comments “Cundall has a strong reputation for high-quality multi-disciplinary engineering skills and with its global reach, and excellent client care, I look forward to expanding the Structural team in Asia, pushing boundaries with sustainable and innovative designs to our clients.”
