Saša Popović appointed director : regional capabilities expand
A structural engineer with 28 years’ experience, Saša joins the leadership team as a director of Whitby Wood Popović. With a cool head and calm approach, he uses his considerable technical and project management abilities to get complex projects built. His recent work includes the UAE Pavilion (Santiago Calatrava) for Dubai EXPO 2020, where he was structural project director for WME Consultants — his detailed design work was instrumental in seeing the monumental pavilion realised.
He has also acted as specialist technical advisor for projects in the Middle East and India, such as for the super-high rise Fountain Views towers (Dewan Architects) in Dubai, and the ten residential Oberoi Sky City Borivali towers (Eco-id Architects) and Oberoi’s Commerz II tower (Oberoi Realty), both in Mumbai.
Whitby Wood director Sebastian Wood explains: “We are thrilled that Saša is joining our team. He has an impressive track record in figuring out how to build complex structures — and has worked all around the world, leading from the front in technical design. His experience expands our ability to operate in the Middle East and more widely.”
Saša: “I want to the thank all the people I have been working with, but now new opportunities are opening up. It’s exciting to be embarking on new challenges with Whitby Wood, exploring new ways of working and approaches to engineering.”
