Innovative structural solutions for sophisticated architecture

We regard the innovative realization of sophisticated architectural concepts as the engineer’s key task in structural design. Creative, pioneering compositions frequently require unconventional structural solutions that combine cost-efficiency with aesthetic appeal.

On structural, civil or bridge engineering projects, we design low-maintenance structures that blend harmoniously with their surroundings. Structural members are subject to maintenance and renewal cycles. Our specialists have the necessary knowledge and skills to assist you in identifying and implementing measures to maintain and improve your facilities.

Supporting structures are more than well-engineered constructions. Structural engineering combines design, aesthetic, form, construction, material and profitability. High quality structures unite form and function, ecology and economy. We realize architectural demanding ideas with well-thought-out structural solutions; we develop maintenance friendly and sustainable structures, which emphasize creative and trailblazing architecture. Our holistic planning process is supported by our interdisciplinary work and future oriented planning tools like Building Information Modeling (BIM), visualizations and digital models.
