Roland Bechmann became aware of our office through a lecture by Werner Sobek in Hanover. Out of interest in the projects and the philosophy of our office, he applied for a position that had just been advertised. The application was promptly followed by an invitation for an interview, and this was followed even more quickly by a job offer. For this reason, Roland Bechmann moved from Hanover to Stuttgart 20 years ago – and since then has not only followed the growth of our office with his own eyes, but has also actively helped to shape it together with many other colleagues (first as a project employee, then as a project manager, later as a team leader – and now as a board member and partner). Congratulations on this wonderful anniversary and an impressive career – and thank you for the good cooperation over the past decades!
