GENERAL PLANNING

Multifaceted projects need good organisation:
How we coordinate your project

In each project, a large number of different phases, specialisations and expertise needs to be coordinated to ensure that even unexpected tasks can be quickly and expertly completed. We take care of this complex coordination process: on request, a fully responsible contact partner can undertake any or all of the relevant tasks – project development, calls for tenders, construction management, auditing, warranty inspection. As a project manager, the contact partner centrally coordinates and optimises the interaction of all service areas – at both a national and international level. In this way, we ensure that our clients have to deal with fewer partners, benefit from greater transparency and, above all, have time for the things that really matter.

SITE / BUILDING PLANNING

Different countries, the same quality:
National standards, implemented internationally

No matter whether we are working for private or institutional clients, no matter how different the projects may be, no matter where in the world we are managing them: we take an individual approach while meeting the same high standards and being in compliance with local codes and regulations. At all stages, we adhere to HOAI specifications. The HOAI (the German Official Scale of Fees for Services by Architects and Engineers) defines standards for basic evidence-based evaluation, preplanning and cost calculation, draft planning, structural analysis, approval and scheduling planning, awarding of contracts, implementation and documentation.
In short: no matter where we are operating, we adhere to recognised technical regulations and national and international standards – all with a clear focus on German efficiency.

STRUCTURAL PLANNING

A variety of requirements, a single impressive solution:
Combining safety, cost-effectiveness and aesthetics

Challenging functional conditions, exacting technical specifications and, last but not least, aesthetic considerations: in each project, a diverse range of requirements come together. This is especially true when it comes to the highly complex requirements of structural planning. We love the challenge of meeting these often conflicting requirements: we always find it stimulating to develop a solution that is completely satisfactory in every respect – especially for our client.

BUILDING VISUALISATION

A good plan deserves to be visualised properly:
Step inside the building before it’s been built

Even with exact measurements, lots of figures and scale drawings, usually only specialists can tell from plans and architectural drawings on paper what the project will actually look like at a later stage.
That’s why we turn these plans into three-dimensional visualisations and animations that clients can move about in virtually. A tour on the monitor gives clients a perfect impression of what their plan will look like in reality.

BUILDING SERVICES EQUIPMENT

The future is more than just tomorrow:
Planning for years to come

Building services equipment is a key indicator of a building’s future-readiness. In this and in many related areas, we take the entire life cycle of your building into account, drawing on an interdisciplinary approach. Many changes – e.g. rising energy costs, growing awareness of energy issues – can already be predicted at the time of planning.
Good planning today creates a secure foundation to ensure a building is ready for future operating costs and property demand as well. With individual holistic concepts, we ensure that projects are

  • – Resource-conserving,
  • – Environmentally friendly,
  • – Energy-efficient,
  • – Easy to operate and maintain.


This is the only way to make sure that a new building is fit for the long term – and that it enjoys long-term success.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Warning: construction work in progress.
Safety needs to be planned too

Safety is a key factor in construction projects. In this area too, we adhere to strict standards and provide comprehensive health and safety coordination services for our clients in accordance with the German Construction Site Ordinance (Baustellenverordnung) while taking into account both customer and local requirements. We undertake all planning and other tasks: issuing advance notice, carrying out a precise risk analysis, producing a health and safety catalogue, defining guidelines for future maintenance work. When it comes to safety, we believe it’s better to be safe than sorry.
