DAHLEM celebrated the company's 80th anniversary - how could it be otherwise if not by the water, right across the street? It was a rainy day, but that did not stop the DAHLEM team from going to the raft race on the Ruhr. The day started with a good breakfast. Energized, we went outside to build the rafts. Southwester hats and rubber boots were announced but nevertheless, defying the weather, it was OK also barefoot. The teams’ creativity in the construction was enormous, the raft had to endure and prove itself when crossing the Ruhr. The day ended slowly, with a closing dinner buffet, and the best rafts were rewarded with a prize.

Seit einiger Zeit radeln die Mitarbeiter von DAHLEM zum Auftraggeber. Bauingenieur Heinz-Jörg Militz schätzt das Radeln mit dem E-Bike sehr: „Mit dem Fahrrad geht es zügig durch den dichten Essener Stadtverkehr und zum Abstellen des Rades findet sich immer ein freier Platz. Ich nutze das E-Bike so oft es mir möglich ist – auch als sportliche und gesundheitliche Variante zum Auto.“

DAHLEM established a new branch office in Berlin in June 2018. Thus DAHLEM is also present in the German capital Berlin, in addition to the other German locations Darmstadt, Würzburg and Stuttgart. Dipl.-Ing. Robert Lohrsträter (right) leads the branch office. He is supported by two other employees - Sandra Weidlich, M.Sc. Water Management (right), and Susanne Busche, M.Sc., Technical Environmental Protection (left), in addition to the company owner Dr.-Ing. Jan-Gregor Dahlem (left). Both employees made Berlin their adopted hometown many years ago.

 It is meanwhile the 8th Essen company run that the DAHLEM running community can record. And again it was called: Together - for each other. A highly motivated Dahlem team went back to the start. The Hawaii Marathon participant and employee of DAHLEM in Essen, Birgit Querdel, was there. Even though a day-long Hawaii marathon has other dimensions, the corporate run, with its 6 kilometers, is also always fun for her. "Being here and arriving is our motto, and sharing it with the colleagues, it's twice as much fun." At 7:00 pm the starting line filled up with the runners at the Huyssenallee. It was not the competition between the companies that took place there; everyone came together to celebrate the sporting event with great fun and dedication. The popularity of the corporate run remains intact  - around 8,000 athletes came to the finish line.

"Starting summer 2018, in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Ruhr West in Mülheim a. d. Ruhr, we are offering a dual degree in structural engineering", explains Jörg Müller, among others responsible for all personnel matters at DAHLEM. "We clearly see the benefit for both sides. The great appeal for the student is to combine the studies with the entry into a company and thus into the professional life. On the other hand, as a company, we get to know young engineers at an early stage in order to be able to win them for us, if applicable, after graduation".

"We have already designed similar projects, but it was good to watch this time in real. The dimensions are quite different”, said Monika Onskulyte, a second-year trainee. Construction site inspections belong to the trainee programme. Darvin Mangelmann and Anika Loose, both of whom draftsman trainees, were also there. Before the site inspection, they had been viewing a 3D model of the ozonation of Wastewater Treatment Plant Aachen and were impressed by the realistic image. DAHLEM is a training company approved by the Chamber of Commerce for Essen, Mülheim and Oberhausen. We have been training young people in the professional draftsman programme for more than 50 years. In the bookkeeping department, we have been offering a an office communication clerk training for five years now, and our four trainees are guided by qualified employees who can draw on many years of training experience and fulfill all training requirements.
