Concrete construction to your specs

Planning and Design

success is in the detail

PLANNING AND DESIGN

With more than 100 staff, the Planning and Design Division covers every discipline in the field of building design. Projects can thus be developed, optimised and finalised for implementation in conjunction with the client. At the same time, early consideration is given to architectural requirements, structural design and technical building systems.

The result is an optimal, sustainable combination of design, functionality and quality.

Focus on the client

Project development

  • Needs assessment
  • Site analysis
  • Location/site selection support on construction issues such as:

     –  soil properties / foundations
     –  drainage
     –  earthmoving
     –  site requirements
 

  • Development of client-defined building concepts taking account of:

     – local boundary conditions
     – business processes
     – cost-effectiveness
     – budget guidelines
     – timetabling
 

  • Participation in talks with authorities
