My professional passion is all about "construction management". It is based on my professional career, which has included the following stations:

  • DYWIDAG International GmbH
  • BAUER special foundation works GmbH
  • Codema International GmbH

These are all larger German construction or consulting companies.

During this career, I have managed large-scale projects in Germany and abroad, where I have worked as a construction manager, project manager, tender engineer, cost estimator, work planner or project controller. I was involved in executing large-scale projects over a sum of Eur 200 million and in planning (tendering) large-scale projects over a sum of Eur 2 billion. As a site manager, I was personally responsible for more than 250 employees from all over the world (Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Lebanon).

My experience in international projects was the reason why I started 2009 a PhD-thesis at the Institute of Construction Management at the University of the Federal Armed Forces Munich (Germany) about the topic of "Project management of large-scale projects in the pre-contract phase". From February 2017 to October 2021, I taught as a full professor at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden the subject "Construction Management" and have always achieved best evaluation results in teaching.

The way I think about climate change and climate protests:

Climate change is real and we need to change the way we use “Planet Earth”! It is important to change our behaviour, but please without any destructive protests!
