bergermann partner

Over 200 motivated members from well over 20 nations make up the international team of schlaich bergermann partner. Together we work on small and large tasks – always with commitment, cooperation and enthusiasm for innovative ideas and developments. 

We believe that every project deserves the attention to make it special. 

Our many years of experience and our professional depth in the most diverse fields of work distinguish us as an engineering firm. For our clients, we are specialists, generalists, visionaries, consultants and team players. We work with our clients as equals, always looking for the best solutions for projects and the environment by keeping the big picture in mind. 

We are pioneers

Since our founding in 1980, schlaich bergermann partner has been one of the pioneers in the field of lightweight, efficient and resource-saving structures.  For 40 years now, we have been developing and implementing solar thermal systems for energy generation. We have accompanied the development of photovoltaics since the beginning and are now also globally active in this segment with a wide range of technologies.

Curiosity and courage drive us. Innovation at sbp covers a wide range: it involves sustainable developments in the construction sector, the development of better design tools, and the use of new building materials and construction methods.

We plan, advise and implement worldwide

For more than 40 years, our goal has been the design and construction of sustainable, sophisticated, and elegant structures. These range from long-span, lightweight roof structures, versatile bridges, slender towers, innovative high-rise buildings to pioneering solar power plants. 

Our projects take us all over the world. That’s why we are where our projects are. We find this is the best way to design structures that are expertly adapted to their respective context and environment. Our locations in Stuttgart, Berlin, New York, São Paulo, Shanghai, Paris, Madrid and Los Angeles create this proximity. 

As an interdisciplinary, growing office, we are continuously developing – while staying mindful of our origins and founding history.

Stuttgart
The history of schlaich bergermann partner began more than 40 years ago in the heart of Stuttgart. To this day, we have strong ties to the capital of Baden-Württemberg and have our headquarters here.
Berlin
We have been located in Berlin since 2005. After Mike Schlaich was appointed professor at the Technical University of Berlin, Department of Design and Construction - Solid Structures, and was also recognized as a test engineer for structural analysis, the establishment of the office in Berlin was a logical step for us.
New York
The successful participation in the competition for the construction of the new One World Trade Center was the cornerstone for our office foundation in New York City in 2004. In the meantime, we have been centrally located in the Garment District for many years and experience intensive collaboration with our team here in our open, light-flooded office.
São Paulo
For more than 10 years, our engineers in our office in São Paulo have been facing all challenges in the fields of architecture, engineering and energy with motivation and commitment. Deeply rooted and with a fundamental knowledge of local procedures and customs, we look forward to new tasks.
Shanghai
schlaich bergermann partner has been involved in construction projects in Asia for over 20 years. The establishment of our office in Shanghai was the logical step for us to be present on site for our clients and planning partners. The focus is on extraordinary and challenging architecture in the field of bridges, exhibition halls, sports facilities and high-rise buildings.
Paris
With now more than 15 years of project work in France, the Benelux countries, North Africa and Switzerland, our francophone team has an outstanding wealth of experience, so much so that we established our office in Paris at the beginning of 2015.
Madrid
For more than 30 years we have been active in Spanish-speaking countries and with Spanish partners all over the world. Our office in Madrid enables us to provide intensive support to our friends, planning partners and projects directly on site. In our centrally located office, opposite the Parque de El Retiro, our experienced team designs and plans innovative engineering structures. In addition to sports facilities, bridges and facades, building structures and roofing fill our project portfolio.
Los Angeles
schlaich bergermann partner has been active in North America for almost 20 years. With our growing presence in Los Angeles, we bring additional expertise to the West Coast of the United States for our clients and partners. Working in close coordination with our New York office, we look to bring exciting structures to life.
