Specialist Operations is an independent research and design office. The office was founded in 2006 and is led by Jan Willem Petersen. He is a spatial planner, architect, and researcher based in the Netherlands. He oversees an interdisciplinary team to develop strategies and shape processes that rebuild resilient urban and conflict-affected environments. The office initiates projects, designs interventions, develops (planning)frameworks, and conducts fieldwork and analytical research, and often responds to questions derived from disciplines beyond architecture and urban planning.

Specialist Operations supports governments, international organizations, and local communities by providing spatial analysis, strategic planning, in-depth urban research, and design.
