From building his own fishing kayak to working on large scale civil engineering projects, this young civil engineer-in-training has a drive to make things happen, and achieve his goals. He’s passionate about technology and how it can help engineers deliver their work faster and better, but he also loves a good hike in nature. He even likes to shower in cold water! 🥶 And, now let’s find out more about Lithon’s Stephan Calitz…
I’ve always loved to build things and I love the satisfaction I get after something I’ve built is completed. I’ve undertaken many small projects in my spare time such as building my own fishing kayak.
I joined Lithon in 2022, just after completing my studies. The company culture was attractive. I liked to see that Lithon has a deeper purpose and is not only driven by making money.
In the morning I send emails to clients and arrange meetings. I then sit with my seniors on technical matters that I am uncertain of. After this, I do designs and drawings using the latest engineering software such as AutoCAD and Civil 3D. If there are site meetings, I attend those.
I love seeing the final product after it’s built!
That age doesn’t matter.
We are the thinkers of tomorrow’s infrastructure. We ensure that people have the basic needs to live (water, housing, food), and we help them to live more comfortably by building user-friendly and safe roads, buildings, and so much more!
Technology enables us to perform our tasks faster and deliver a better product to our clients. BIM is one of the latest tools/processes that helps us to do this.
The snail farm project is my favourite. I spent more than 500 hours on this project and I was involved in all project phases. I like this project because it’s something unique and different compared to the usual civil engineering projects.
My father. He has set an example for me in his career and personal life, and always encourages me to perform in all aspects of life.
I’d like to write 50 pages of my engineering report for registering as a professional engineer.
Hiking, camping, fishing, running and cycling, and everything outdoors!
I take cold showers.
