Press Release  (3615 character)

In June 2017 ATP architects engineers opened a further German integrated design office in Berlin and – in addition to Munich and Frankfurt am Main – is now also present in the Federal capital.

The establishment of ATP Berlin occurred in connection with an expanding order book in Northern Germany. The ATP studios on Kurfürstendamm will be led by a management duo consisting of the German architect Elmar Rottkamp and the German building services specialist and ATP Board Member Thomas Herter.

Elmar Rottkamp, Managing Director, ATP Berlin

The German architect and urban planner, who studied in Paderborn and Dortmund, most recently spent five years as an Associate Director of the British engineering company Arup Associates in London. At the same time he carried out research into urban development at Kingston University.

The architect and trained real estate economist is happy to be working back in the German market with ATP. In developing the new office Elmar Rottkamp intends to make very targeted use of the advantages of integrated design, which have transformed ATP into one of Europe’s leading offices, coupled with his international project experience: “All design work at ATP is interdisciplinary and supported by the latest digital methods. The result of this is that we ensure both higher quality and certainty in terms of cost and scheduling than our classically structured competitors.”

Elmar Rottkamp has almost 30 years of international professional experience as well as qualifications as a real estate economist in EBS and Real Estate Investment Management from the European Business School and in Strategies for Sustainability from York University, Toronto as well as an MBA from Northwestern University Chicago and WHU Koblenz. He is a member of the Bund Deutscher Architekten BDA, the Architektenkammer Berlin, and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors MRICS.

Elmar Rottkamp’s references include a series of office buildings and concepts in London such as the refurbishment of a listed office building and the neighboring construction of a 70,000-square-meter sustainable office tower, a tennis stadium in Doha, a new facility at Blackfriars Pier in London, the CO2-neutral SKY TV Academy (which is the UK’s largest wooden commercial building), the development of a district center on a former military site in Potsdam and the new building of Potsdam University of Applied Sciences.

Westwind Real Estate Search GmbH from Berlin was successfully involved in the role of human resources consultant in the appointment of  Elmar Rottkamp.

Thomas Herter, Managing Director, ATP Berlin and ATP Board Member

Born in Heidelberg, Thomas Herter studied Energy and Process Engineering, with a focus on heating and air-conditioning technology, at Berlin University of Technology and spent a number of years in Germany and abroad working in the field of building services design. Prior to moving to ATP Thomas Herter was Managing Director of the Arup Group in Germany which employs around 150 specialists in three locations in the areas of building services and structural engineering, project management, façade design, building physics, and fire protection. Thomas Herter has been a board member of ATP since 2016.
