Robin Schipper

Creativity in problem-solving. That is a characteristic that is especially helpful in this profession, according to engineer R. (Robin) Schipper, MBA. Since 2010, Robin has worked at Pieters Bouwtechniek as a Branch Leader at the Zwolle and Utrecht offices.

The power of the organization comes from the technology, according to Robin. To work at Pieters, you have to be substantively competent. The level of know-how is very high, and Pieters is one of the ‘premier league players’ in the field of construction technology. With several branch offices, the organization can react quickly and flexibly to our clients' needs.

The creativity of the ‘Pieters people’ and the way we find solutions are a good fit for what the clients want. Analysing the clients' wishes—that's where our emphasis lies. Robin’s strong sense of empathy regularly calls up surprised reactions from clients: ‘A structural engineer who can put himself in our shoes!’

His vision: The structural engineer is an important component of a building or artwork. Early intervention by a structural engineer results in an economical design. With a view to sustainability and social responsibility, that will become increasingly more important in the near future.
