Michael Schlatter

Civil Engineer

Project Manager

Michael Schlatter is in his element when he is in a challenging environment that demands team spirit and flexibility. He proved his ability to keep a cool head despite tight deadlines and complex situations during his time as a United Nations Military Observer in the Middle East – and as a curling referee at the Olympic Games. Michael Schlatter joined Basler & Hofmann as a project manager for the Structural Engineering and Industrial Buildings departments in 2005, and, with the exception of a two-year stint as a deputy manager of a Bern engineering firm branch office, has been at the company ever since. His project highlights include three high-rise buildings in Europaallee in Zurich, the car park at Kunstmuseum Basel, and working on the new RBS station in Bern. 

What is different about working at Basler & Hofmann?

Working on exciting projects with colleagues from a huge range of different fields, and the honest and open communication within the company – everyone’s expertise is essential, and everyone contributes to the success of our projects. 

What do you find makes a project particularly enjoyable?

I enjoy working on complex and unusual projects. And, if the environment is also challenging and time is of the essence, that’s when I’m really in my element.
