The civil engineer has been working for Basler & Hofmann Innerschweiz since 2004, first in structural engineering then as head of the Stansstad location in all classical engineering disciplines, such as special civil engineering, engineering structures, conversion and construction work. In 2010, he moved to Malters, where he was head of the location that specialises in hydraulic engineering, urban drainage, water supply and road and highway construction. He was a member of the Executive Board of Basler & Hofmann Innerschweiz from 2015 to 2018, when he decided to return his focus to demanding projects. He is currently a leading expert and member of the management team for the Structural Engineering and Industrial Buildings departments.
