Eng. Crtomir Remec
After having graduated from the Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering in 1983 and earned a master degree in 1986, Eng. Crtomir Remec focused his work to the nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete structures.
From 1987 to 2004, Eng. Remec worked at the Steel Construction Institute (IMK) in Ljubljana. He started as a researcher, then became Head of the construction department and finally Director of the Institute. He acquired the necessary management knowledge by attending the postgraduate study of management and business administration (MBA) at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration in Maribor, Slovenia.
Between 2007 and 2009, he completed the Leadership Development Process for Trimo, D.D., Engineering and Production of Pre-fabricated Buildings, Slovenia within the German Five Steps education programme.
As a researcher Eng. Remec mainly worked on the problem of the safety of steel structures subjected to earthquake loading. Lately he focused his research on studies of the behaviour of moment-resisting beam-to-column connections in moment-resisting steel frames. When he was managing the construction department, his project team introduced many contemporary methods for the rehabilitation of old steel road and railway bridges.
After 20 years of working in a public institute Eng. Remec decided to continue his career in the prefabricated construction industry at Trimo group. His strategic goal was to develop a revolutionary highly energy-efficient façade system. In 2011, a new high-tech production line started to operate and the first two low energy buildings were completed, following by a transparent glass curtain wall façade in 2013.
In mid-2015, he was offered the opportunity to use his extensive professional and management experience in the field of prefabricated and energy-efficient building as Director of the Housing Fund of the Republic of Slovenia, Public Fund.
Eng. Remec served as Chairman of the Slovenian Steel Construction Organisation (OJK) and he was a member of the European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) Executive Board from 1997, where he served as President in 2003 and 2004. His activities in engineering organisations started in 2000 when he was elected President of the Slovenian Chamber of Engineers (IZS), while between 2005 and 2011 he was a national member of the Executive Council of the WFEO. He is one of the founding members and currently President of the European Council of Engineers Chambers (ECEC).
In December 2015, he has been elected for Executive Vice-President of WFEO for the period 2015 – 2019.
