Marcel Burren has been the Head of Electrical Engineering and Automation at Basler & Hofmann since 2019. Over the course of his career, he has gotten to know every aspect of his area of speciality: after completing his vocational education and training as an electrical fitter, he continued to learn and develop his skills. He went on to work as an electrical safety consultant and electrical project manager before training to become an electrician. He worked as the manager of Jost Elektro AG Brugg in Frick and as the head of the building services department at Alpiq InTec West. In 2017, he studied digitalisation in detail while earning a Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Digital Construction at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW). As part of the CAS he also successfully completed a building information modelling (BIM) leadership course at Stanford University in the US.

What fascinates you about your work?

I am constantly impressed by what we are able to achieve as a project team when we all work together towards the same goal. Furthermore, I enjoy the variety that comes with my job – no two days are alike.

What other profession could you imagine yourself in – and why?

I love my job so much that I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I am so excited about the opportunity to help shape the Building Services and Automation department at Basler & Hofmann.
