After graduating from high school in 1962 and studying civil engineering with subsequent doctorate under Hubert K. Hilsdorf at the University of Karlsruhe (TH), he was head of "Central Quality Management" in a construction company from 1978 to 1990. From 1990 to 2009 he was university professor for building materials, building material testing and building chemistry at the Technical University of Berlin ( TU Berlin ) and from 1992 to 2009 at the same time director of the Institute for the Preservation and Modernization of Buildings ( IEMB ). He is a member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences ( BBAW ) and the German Academy for Technical Sciences ( acatech ). He played a key role in the development of new building materials and in new test methods in the building industry (including the location of tension wire breakage ). Among other things, acid-resistant concrete was developed at the Building Materials and Building Material Testing Department (TU Berlin) . The second highest cooling tower in the world at 200 m in Niederaussem was built from this concrete . He was also involved in the development of the concrete recipe for the concrete steles for the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe .
In 2006, he and Andrei Walther received the Berlin-Brandenburg Innovation Prize for their method of locating tension wire breaks in transverse tendons of prestressed concrete bridges . At the end of 2007, on the basis of theoretical approaches and calculations, he was able to help realize the world's longest concrete slab without joints at 280 m for the Petra III project of the German Electron Synchrotron .
On June 19, 2013 he was appointed to the project advisory board of DB Projekt Stuttgart-Ulm GmbH .
