The heartbeat of our company lies in our Stuttgart headquarters. Berlin extends our presence in Germany, and through Mike Schlaich, strengthens our engagement with research and development as his professorship at the Technical University of Berlin offers our engineers the opportunities to test materials and deepen our theoretical understanding of engineering and the applications of new technologies.


Our involvement in prestigious international projects require that we operate globally and to better serve our clients we have office branches in New York, São Paulo, Shanghai and Paris.


Our office was founded by Jörg Schlaich and Rudolf Bergermann. Since then, our ambition is to design lightweight, efficient and innovative structures, whilst considering the social dimension inherent to our work.
