I decided to work for ABT because this is where I can actually use my structural design techniques. The people at ABT make beautiful projects, which are achieved through love of the trade and a command of the craftsmanship. I love designers who can create beautiful designs with very simple structures. Suchov, a Russian who lived in the last century, is one of my role models. He could make beautiful towers with an ingenious design that required much less material than the designs of his contemporaries. This inspires me to come up with ingenious and sustainable designs with modern techniques and methods.

I know how to achieve the loyalty of my clients by being a reliable partner to them and having an eye for their needs and interests. I am also involved in professional associations and knowledge institutes. For example, I am a member of the TC13 commission on “Earthquake Resistant Structures” of the “Building with Steel” Association. Besides that, I teach on earthquake-proof building at Hanze University in Groningen. In 2010, I was admitted as a Register Designer by the Dutch Constructors Register.

After my “Building & Architecture” study at the Eindhoven University, I gained experience at a consultative engineering firm. In 1999 I switched to ABT and started my ABT career at the Delft branch. I continued my work at the Belgian branch in Antwerp, where I was active as senior advisor until recently. I also gave guidance to the Velp and Delft structural engineering group. Besides that, I am senior seismic adviser at abtWassenaar and BORG. Since July 2017, I am building a stable and future-proof ABT as Technical Director – together with Gerard Doos.
