Senior Engineering Manager at Arabian Construction Company


“I have worked with Valeria, being deputized by her Employer Samsung C & T, for the Tender of the Abu Dhabi Midfield Terminal Building which is part of the Midfield Terminal Complex, in my capacity as the deputy JV Tender Manager.

The multi Billion USD Tender was worked out by a Joint Venture consisting of Samsung C & T (lead), Arabian Construction Company and Sixco during a period of 10 months (February to December 2011).

Valeria worked in the Team as Lead Architect and was responsible for the overall coordination, collecting and establishing the content of the Tender Forms and controlling the progress of the Tender Program. Furthermore Valeria prepared various meetings as well as the weekly Tender Progress Meetings. The Tender was one of the largest and technically most complicated Tenders I prepared during my 43 years of experience. Valeria’s performance was exemplary and distinguished by consistently investing extra efforts to achieve the required deadlines set by the Tender Program. In particular the Tender success largely benefitted from her communication and managerial skills to lead and venture the very different cultural diversities of the JV Members being from the Far East, Middle East and Europe. The very good command of the English language, particular in the technical and commercial fields combined with her excellent computer skills in power point, Photoshop, etc. was the bases to produce a uniform Tender document based on submissions from the different trades, suppliers and potential subcontractors. In particular during the final compilation, printing and binding of the master copy of the extensive Tender documents Valeria worked tireless to complete everything on time. Furthermore Valeria compiled with great effort and success 228 power point slides for the JV Presentation requested by the Client to present the JV Project Director and his Senior Managers together with the methodology as to how the JV intends to perform the works, including the major alternatives in terms of technical and commercial particulars.

Valeria contributed both professionally to the Tender in practice and socially and was well respected and well-liked by all members of the Tender team. She is intelligent, professional, has good communication skills and is willing to take the initiative. I have no doubts as to her integrity and have no hesitation in offering a high recommendation of her abilities. If I can be of any further assistance by providing you with any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.”

Associate Director of Architecture

“To whom it may concern, Architect – Valeria Sevilla I have known Valeria for a period of 18 months in my capacity as Director. Valeria worked for me on the Blue City project Phase 1 in Oman as the project architect responsible for one of the large geometrically complex residential buildings.

While at Aedas Valeria performance was exemplary, she distinguished herself by consistently putting in the extra effort to achieve the assignment deadlines. The project was highly demanding yet Valeria was able to manage a team of 3 support CAD staff along with coordinating the structure and MEP engineers for her scope of responsibility. The other noteworthy projects she has worked on for Aedas Dubai are Masdar City, U-bora and Boulevard Plaza. Valeria contributed both professionally to the work of the practice and socially as a well-respected and well liked member of the team. She is intelligent, professional, has good communication skills and is willing to take the initiative. I have no doubts as to her integrity and have no hesitation in offering a high recommendation of her abilities.
