Civil engineer Ulrich Riep specialises in planning, assessing, and managing brownfield site reactivation and remediation in his role as a project manager. He’s especially proud of a demolition project at Henrichshütte, a former steel-working plant in Hattingen, where he was responsible for conducting environmental studies on the site as part of the remediation and demolition planning, and coordinating and supervising the entire project. His current responsibilities include preparing a 65-hectare site at the former Opel factory I plant in Bochum for construction as well as a site remediation project at a former zinc smelter in Datteln. In his spare time, he likes to play sports and ride his motorbike.
