Chaido Doulala-Rigby (Yuli), Chief Engineer Tensar International, and Mike Dobie, Tensar Regional Manager Asia Pacific, have both recently been admitted as Fellows of the Institution of Civil Engineers, the world’s oldest professional engineering society, and the pre-eminent international organisation for civil engineers of all disciplines.

“Recognition by one’s peers is extremely valuable and self-rewarding,” comments Yuli. “Since becoming Chief Engineer at Tensar, I am fortunate to have been responsible for the design of some of the largest reinforced soil structures ever built. Pushing the boundaries has helped me to make a mark in the industry.”

“My invitation to become a Fellow recognises the contribution that ICE has made to civil engineering here in Indonesia,” adds Mike. “In Tensar our professional standards in ground stabilisation and soil reinforcement systems are as high as, if not higher than, any in our industry.”

Chaido Doulala-Rigby (Yuli) FICE and Mike Dobie FICE are supported by a number of professionally qualified engineers at Tensar International, including eight Members of the Institution of Civil Engineers.
