Building Construction Management

In ensuring the smooth progression of design and construction, we adopt a variety of roles: as general planner / lead designer on new-build, refurbishment and alteration projects, we eliminate all interface problems in the design and production processes. At the design stage, we reconcile the demands of clients and architects. At the construction stage, we keep a tight grip on costs, deadlines and on-site workmanship.

Building Services Design and Building Environmental Control

We develop intelligent integral concepts for buildings throughout their entire life cycle. We simulate light, shade, and climate, and bring statics, architecture, and technical inner workings together coherently in concept, implementation, and realisation. As experts in cooling, heating, and electricity from renewable energies, we are contributing to the implementation of the Energy Strategy 2050.

Digital Engineering Solutions

Our focus is on three key pillars: Building Information Modeling (BIM) / Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Project Life Cycle Solutions, and Expert Consultancy.

At the heart of our commitment to engineering and construction excellence is the utilization of cutting-edge technology, particularly Building Information Modeling (BIM). Through BIM, we create precise digital workflows for your projects, enhancing visualization and enabling data-driven decision-making. This innovative approach shifts further into Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), seamlessly integrates multidisciplinary performance models for your design-construction projects. We cover not only the delivery of state-of-the-art facilities but also the optimization of work processes and the synergy within your and our design-construction-operation teams. By embracing BIM and VDC, we don't just meet business objectives; we exceed them, paving the way for the projects continued success.

Project Life Cycle Services ensure that your projects receive comprehensive support from inception to completion, optimizing every stage for maximum efficiency and quality. Our Expert Consultancy offers strategic guidance and insights, empowering your team to make informed decisions and stay at the forefront of industry advancements.
