Christian Peter

Draughtsman in Civil Engineering

Project Manager

If anyone knows about track alignment, it’s Christian Peter. Whether standard gauge, narrow gauge, new lines or renovation work, underground railway stations or tram depots – as a qualified draughtsman in civil engineering, Christian Peter always finds ways to optimise track geometry, even when space is at a premium. He has been a member of the Basler & Hofmann Railways team since 2003 and manages rail projects from Appenzell to Geneva. As Christian Peter says: “Railways have been a constant in my life ever since I was a child”. Now he is responsible for keeping things rolling smoothly on the rail network.

What fascinates you about your work?

Being involved in planning a new infrastructure project right from the start, and then months or years later, depending on the size of the project, gliding along on the very same rail network – that fascinates me.

What do you find makes a project particularly enjoyable?

When, after all the highs and lows, everyone is happy with the team effort and what we have achieved at the end of a project.
