European Consulanacy

Since Wael Aboneama was a student in the architecture department, he dreamt of being a famous international architect. This dream was the reason for his move to Europe at the beginning of 2003. Since his first arrival in Athens, he was struggling for his bachelor's and master's accreditation. In 2006 he got his membership in TEE which is the engineering syndicate for professional architects and engineers in Greece. One of the exam priorities is to be fluent in the Greek language and all building and construction laws. Secondly, the accreditation should be European accreditation which called (ΔΟΑΤΑΠ). After getting this membership, Dr. Wael owns the key to be an international architect.

Consultant Architect

The architecture consultant is a higher level than the architect. Dr. Wael as a consultant provides various predesign services, such as feasibility and environmental impact studies, site selection, cost analyses, and design requirements. He supervises and develops final construction plans after discussing and agreeing on the initial proposal with clients with the level of sustainability and value engineering. He supervises professionally the coordination between drawings of the structural system; air-conditioning, heating, and ventilating systems; electrical systems; communications systems; and plumbing. Sometimes, landscape plans are included as well. In developing designs, he follows state and local building codes, zoning laws, fire regulations, and other ordinances, such as those requiring easy access to buildings for people who are disabled without losing any objective of the project scope. Dr. Wael has started working with Computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) since he was a student in 1993 with international offices. He moved to building information modeling (BIM) since 2003 and replaced traditional drafting paper and pencil as the most common methods for creating designs and construction drawings. However, hand-drawings and sketches are still produced by Dr. Wael, especially during the conceptual stages of a project and when he is at a construction site. Dr. Wael as a consultant helps clients get construction bids, select contractors, and negotiate construction contracts. As construction continues, Dr. Wael visits building sites himself beside his team of architects and engineers to ensure that contractors follow the design, adhere to the schedule, use the specified materials, and meet work quality standards. The job is not complete until all construction is finished, required tests are conducted, and construction costs are paid. During the building operation, Dr. Weal’s duties as a consultant still exist to enhance building performance and apply any risk management plans required as per his experience in risk management.

Manual sketches & Freehand drawings

The admiration of freehand sketches was the start spark and the reason for selecting architecture as a profession for Wael Aboneama


Students & Clients Say:

As a professor, Wael Aboneama deals with his students as partners and colleagues in the architecture profession. I have to say that the most interesting time for myself is inside the university with my students. Also, I am very fortunate to have formed excellent partnerships with many of my clients.

Ayman Ahmed, Gilbarco

Weal is a great architect in the form of skillful engineer, accurate and precise, motivated and leader, I'm amazed by his design quality, brightness, self-descriptive drawings. Being partners sometimes, I was proud of the job we did together and how credentials base we built. Your buildings will act as stars shining in Europe, Egypt, the Gulf, and Africa.

Mostafa Khaled

I also remembering what you teach me from your lectures and changed my way of thinking about how teaching could be easier and more understandable.

Aya Nasr

The truth is that Dr. Wael is one of the most prolific professors whom I benefited from them very much during my university study, and I did not forget about his lectures and what he said to us, and I still have my notes of his lectures :) And I remember also about his subject "Architecture Theories". May God honors you, professor, and always help you, Wael Aboneama. Thank you very much. :)

Salma Abd El Menem

Dr. Wael, you have affected us all morally and scientifically to the extent that I keep all the lectures even after I have graduated and always invite you, may God make him Lord in the balance of your good deeds. You really, make us love the architecture and affected my personality. Thank you doctor.

Youstina Adel

It is one of the very few professors that I would really enjoy the lecture .. I always see that it is easy if you have information that you fear and say it like what it is and salvation. Teaching is not a duty.

Mohammad Wael Aboneama

I love Baba's work and designs. It is always my pleasure to be by his side (as much as possible) to learn how he creates those beautiful buildings. I can draw nice sketches, however they are not for buildings. He told me that this was an excellent start. I hope to be a designer like him and be able to use all of the programs that he used to create his buildings with.

Ibrahim Wael Aboneama

I have started to learn Sketchup and make some buildings. Baba told me they were beautiful, but I see his buildings are more beautiful than mine. I want to join his department and be a professor like him. I always walk with him to his university during summer vacation and sit on his chair in his office.

Noah Wael Aboneama

I can't tell you about my experience with dad's work because I have nothing right now. However, he plays well, and I noticed that he likes to draw sketches a lot. He works hard on his black keyboard and gets bored when I press all the keys together. He says he takes much more time to work when I sit on him during his work.
