Belgium-based BAS bvba, primarily known as an `architectural structural engineering` office, was founded by ir. arch. Dirk Jaspaert in 2000. According to Dirk Jaspaert "BAS engineers work very closely with the architects, and start doing so early in the design process. We support them in making the choices that are key to realize buildings that feel right, focusing relentlessly on structural designs that implement the architects’ creative concepts.
