Practice in private - an interesting type of work
In 1999 after nearly 16 years of industrial profession I decided to establish with my own engineering firm to practice in private. Great planning firms, industrial companies etc. increasingly purchase specialised knowledge and expert information - from freelancers or small specialised and highly qualified engineering firms like me.

My clients are both architects, private and public owners, contractors, handcrafters, building materials producers and authorities, chambers, insurances, associations, academies etc. using my services of expert opinion, training/lectures, technical advice, project management and technical articles.

I'm registered as "Consulting Engineer" at the Engineering Association Baden-Wuerttemberg with membership number 0916.
