Special Unit Leads
For our day-to-day project work, we have identified key topics that are driven by our Special Unit Leads. Key areas such as Conceptual Design, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Lighting Design are thus given overarching and holistic support, advising project teams around the world with in-depth expertise. Daniel Gebreiter, Ana Llinares and Christiane Sander are responsible for the planning and coordination of these special units.
Projects that demand outstanding results can only be successfully completed as a team. This applies when collaborating with clients, architects and engineering fellows, but even more so for one’s own team.
