Jan-Peter Koppitz specializes in the delivery of integrated design and analysis of complex projects. Since joining Arup after graduation in 2000, he has been involved in a wide range of projects worldwide. He has gained design experience in many materials and structural typologies but especially in timber construction – which is his passion and specialty. Design and delivery of complex projects is best realized based on a parametric, single-model BIM approach, which Jan-Peter aims to apply to most projects Jan-Peter regularly works with architects on a variety of competition submissions and conceptual designs. Hence a strong interest in unified, collaborative teamwork amongst the entire design team in order to deliver projects better. He has been part of architectural/engineering project offices and has participated in research projects to understand and accelerate this aspect of work.
