From a very early age, I have been fascinated by the building trade. Making something that is visible and tangible. As it turned out, I graduated as a constructional engineer and was able to turn my boyhood dream into reality. It is my ambition to contribute to the built environment in a way that is not only functional, but attractive as well.
It is great to walk through a building for the first time and to see that the ideas in your head, and which you have developed into a 2D or 3D design, have become physical reality. It’s a special moment, every time.
ABT offers me the opportunity to grow. I am able to work on beautiful and special projects, together with beautiful and special people. We get inside views of various organisations and institutions. It is fascinating to see what they do, how they do it, and why. These aspects involve spatial requirements and it is a wonderful challenge to come up with a perfect fit. Whether this involves creating a new building or adapting an existing one for a new use. Over the years, existing buildings have become my speciality.
I have been employed by ABT since 1988 and have been involved in all stages of constructional engineering, from the drawing board to management level. My experience has been very wide indeed. And that has always been my ambition - to become familiar with as many aspects of this profession as possible. As a design manager, I am now able to connect all disciplines. This allows me to optimally contribute to a beautiful and functional built environment. It’s a childhood dream come true!
