Our global presence counts with a multidisciplinary team of more than 190 members engaged in designing and delivering technically sound solutions to a range of engineering problems.
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, Paris and Madrid.
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.
For our managing directors it is important to have a personal relationship with clients, architects and team members, which involves their active engagement with every project they lead.
To tackle today’s challenges of planning and building and to cover the multitude of tasks, our Partners are supported by the Managing Directors.
Markus Balz leads our solar division (sbp sonne). Together with Mike Schlaich, Jochen Gugeler is responsible for our checking engineering division. The expertise that their experience provides is of significant value to the independent review and supervision required of this function of engineering in Germany and worldwide. Miriam Sayeg and Michael Zimmermann lead our offices in São Paulo und Paris.

Over the past years, we have identified four main areas of focus that we are continuing to advance further: Conceptual Design, Building Information Modeling (BIM), Lighting Design and Construction Management. Our Leads Daniel Gebreiter, Ana Llinares, Christiane Sander and Mathias Widmayer are appointed to plan and coordinate the promotion of these special units.
Only an experienced and multidisciplinary team can successfully meet our ambitious goals and quality standards. This is reflected in the cooperation with clients, architects, and fellow engineers, but even more so in the collaboration amongst our colleagues.
We are all courageous enough to see these challenges as opportunities. Every team member makes a contribution to achieve the overall goal. This is how schlaich bergermann partner can act as a generalist.
