History

After working 13 years for a big German construction company, in 2000 Prof. Ziegler has been appointed to a professorship for geotechnical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Since then, Prof. Ziegler has kept in contact to the practice. He managed that on the one hand by handling practical subjects in research, but particularly by his permanent activities as an expert and consultant.

In 2007, the cornerstone of the cooperation between the two managing partners Prof. Ziegler and Dr. Aulbach was placed by the employment of Dr. Aulbach at the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering at RWTH Aachen. The good collaboration, especially on various construction projects and expert reports has motivating a further teamwork beyond the work at the university.

Because of many successful projects, the ZAI Ziegler and Aulbach Ingenieurgesellschaft was founded in May 2013. Since June 2013 the ZAI is settled in the premises of Schloss Rahe in the middle of the Euregio Maas-Rhein in the border region of the countries Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.

Prof. Ziegler was born on 24th March 1954 in Oberkirch. He studied civil engineering at University of Karlsruhe before he acted there as a scientific assistant at the Institute for soil and rock mechanics between 1980 and 1987. After his dissertation about the subject “Calculation of the displacement-dependent earth pressure in sand” he worked in the technical department “Soil and Hydraulic Engineering” of the Philipp Holzmann AG from 1987 till 1991. Following his function as a site manager and contract manager he became the head of the department “Disposal Site and Remediation Technology” (1992-1995) and finally the director of the section “Infrastructure Project” (1995-1998). As of 1998 Prof. Ziegler took over the management of the “Philipp Holzmann Planning Company” in Neu-Isenburg. In 2000 he finally became the holder of the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering and the head of the Institute of Foundation Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Rock Mechanics and Waterways Construction at RWTH University. Since 2013 Prof. Ziegler is managing partner of the ZAI Ziegler and Aulbach Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH. Beside his function as manager and head of institute Prof. Ziegler is a member of numerous boards and committees, in many of them as board member and chairman.
