Launch and beginnings (1954-1959)

After completing his civil engineering studies at EPF Zurich (1936) and his first working experience in the road safety division of the brand-new "Swiss Office of Accident Prevention" (1938), Jean-Louis Biermann joined a mission of experts to the United States.

He returned with know-how and innovations from this country, which was far ahead of Europe at that time in terms of traffic management. He quickly put this knowledge into practice by opening an office in Lausanne in 1954, and actively participating in the Federal Commission assigned to study the possibility of a Swiss highway network.

In addition to highway network development, the Biermann office began to take on projects such as the design of parking areas and transport planning, and began to work internationally (for example, in Athens, Greece, and in the Aegean Sea).
