Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering is an engineering firm based in Stuttgart, New York City and Berlin. It was founded in 2001 and specialises in structural design and facade engineering of German and international construction projects involving high-rise buildings, steel and timber constructions, bridges and airports. The firm works in collaboration with internationally renowned architects, like Massimiliano Fuksas, Grimshaw Architects, Steven Holl, Renzo Piano, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Barkow Leibinger and Stefan Behnisch.

The focus is on the development and programming of special solutions for complex parametrical or generated geometries of roof constructions and of façades comprising steel and glass structures, as in the façade of the Shenzhen International Airport, which features 60,000 different façade units.[1]

The design and development of the largest membrane roof worldwide, covering the 1,000 m long and 100 m wide main entrance building on the World-Exposition in Shanghai, originates by Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering, as well as the steel and glass structure of the shopping mall MyZeil in Frankfurt on the Main and the roofing of the shopping mall Westfield near London.[2]

Furthermore, the company experiments with innovative materials; e.g. Knippers Helbig is responsible for Europe’s first road bridge consisting of fibre-glass reinforced plastics.[3]
