Albano Sánchez

Director

As a fully qualified Chartered Structural Engineer (ICE) and Member of the Colegio de Caminos, Canales y Puertos (ICCP), Albano’s career spans over 20 years and he has worked for some of the leading global engineering consultancies including Ramboll and Arup.

He completed his MEng (Hons) in Civil and Structural Engineering (Ingeniero Superior de Caminos, Canales y Puertos), gaining a 1st class honours degree.

He began his career in Spain working as a Site Engineer for Ascan SA and later as Civil and Structural Design Engineer for Castinsa SL in Salamanca, involved in a number of large residential and infrastructure projects.

After relocating to UK, he was offered a role with one of the largest companies in the UK, WA Fairhurst & Partners where he developed his core design skills. Further developing his career with one of the largest international Consulting Engineering companies Arup and Partners, he was involved in a diverse range of project types including amongst many others, a post-tensioned multistorey car park as part of a £280M development in Oxford, a Hangar to accommodate Airbus in Brize Norton and a series of large span supermarkets for Waitrose.

After meeting his lovely wife Belen, he relocated to Gibraltar to take a role in the Technical Services Department of the Government of Gibraltar. This established Albano in Gibraltar, as he formed very strong relationships with his peer group and proved to be a steppingstone for a very rewarding 10-year career with Ramboll Gibraltar. Albano was able to implement and grow the structural engineering team on the Rock for Ramboll, and quickly became a Director of the company; whilst leading multidisciplinary design teams for many Gibraltar iconic projects including E1, Forbes 1848 and Clemence Suites in Devils Tower Road, Imperial Ocean Plaza and Ocean Spa Plaza in Ocean Village, and the Europa Suites development at Europa Point.

But his heart was always to establish his own company, and so in 2022 he founded NOSA with his business partner, with the aim of giving back to the market and to provide a platform to encourage and develop young local Gibraltarian talent.

Albano loves to spend time with the family and finds that his two young daughters keep him busy! When he does find a little bit of spare time, he tries to follow the Spanish national football team and was lucky enough to see them play in the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.
