EFCA Announces the Future Leader of the Year 2021
EFCA is delighted to announce the winner of the twelfth Future Leader’s Competition to be Krzysztof Wojslaw from Oslo, Norway. Krzysztof managed to convince the jury that his project, E16 Randselva Bridge, is indeed a game-changer for our industry. Out of a total of 17 entries from across 7 countries, the jury recognised Krzysztof’s project as being state of the art.
At the age of 31, Krzysztof has already an impressive number of achievements to his name. He is a dedicated professional who is active as Co-Founder of BIM Corner, Parametric design and VDC Expert at Sweco Norway, and Designing Leader at Spenncon AS.
In recent years, he has established himself as Sweco’s leading parametric design expert and has stood out as a pioneer in the field. Krzysztof’s ingenuity hasn’t gone unnoticed, in November 2020, he was awarded the “Young Consultant of the Year” title by the Norwegian Association of Consulting Engineers. Today, he shows the whole continent that his additional title and award of Future Leader of the Year 2021 is very well deserved.
Krzysztof on the E16 Randselva Bridge: “New collaboration methods together with parametric designs and skipping the drawings, is without any doubt the future of engineering – and sets the standard for the whole industry.”
It is clear that Krzysztof is an example to follow when it comes to putting the consulting industry in the spotlight. With his winning project, he paves the road to the future of digitized construction. Apart from his expertise, Krzysztof showed to be a visionary, reliant, responsible, and cooperative leader.
The jury congratulates the two runners-up, Tor Martin Lystad and Jordy Vos, who also presented ground-breaking work. We look forward to the official award ceremony at the EFCA Conference in June 2022.
