akt ii dimitrios selemetas

AKT II has strengthened its geotechnical services with the appointment of Dimitrios Selemetas.

Selemetas, who will be responsible for further expanding and delivering AKT II’s geotechnical design services, has more than 15 years of experience in delivering the design and construction of complex deep basements and piled foundations.

Joining from Cementation Skanska where he was chief geotechnical engineer delivering the London City Airport Extension piling package, Selemetas also worked on the Nova Victoria basement in London.

Most recently he was one of the contributing authors of Ciria 760 report on the design of embedded retaining walls to Eurocode Standards.

Selemetas areas of expertise include the design of foundations to Eurocodes, deep basements, piled foundations, diaphragm walls, foundations in difficult soils, tunnelling and field monitoring.

Commenting on joining AKT II, Selemetas said “I am very excited to be taking on the role of technical director at AKT II leading their geotechnical team.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to integrate the geotechnical design with the structural design of foundations, which is mostly governed by constructability requirements and deliver smart solutions based on buildability and optimum efficiency between superstructure and substructure.”

Prior to working for consultancies and specialist contractors, Selemetas completed his PhD research at Cambridge University on the response of full -scale piles and piled structures to tunnelling during construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.
