Business Segments - Planning

Performance Phases

We take over the planning of your project. Whether as a general planner or as a planner for individual sub-areas - we support you actively in all work phases of the HOAI (Fee Structure for Architects and Engineers) from planning, construction supervision, and project management. Our services are described below using the example of the engineering structures:

Project Management and Site Management

Through us you get a strong team, which you need for a successful construction project. We serve the four pillars of every construction project management, regardless of whether it is a small or large project, a pure construction project or the realisation of a complex process engineering plant.

Schedule management

Within the scope of schedule management, we prepare a superordinate project schedule for you, which is kept up-to-date throughout the entire project, so that proper control and monitoring of the construction project is possible. We evaluate scenarios, prepare analyses and carry out target/actual comparisons. We coordinate time schedules so that the targets can be met as far as possible.

Interface Management

When carrying out construction measures with (many) different trades, there are always problems between the parties involved. We are not afraid to take up these problems and to solve them in the interest of the client, taking all interests into account. With our many years of experience in small and large projects, we have gained experience that helps us to identify and solve interface problems in advance, before they arise.

Cost Management

Good cost management may cost you money, but it saves you stress and spares your nerves. Through our cost-conscious project management and our striving for an optimal cost-benefit ratio, you can also create financial security for yourself. Through meaningful cost forecasts and prompt cost monitoring, we create solutions together with the client to ensure that costs do not get out of hand.

Approval Management

We help you not only during the design and approval planning, but also with the planning and implementation of your approval procedure during the construction phase. We support you in obtaining official permits, in coordinating and monitoring compliance with official requirements.

  • Updating of benefit-cost studies
  • Participation in administrative arrangements
  • Demonstration of overriding reasons of overriding public interest justifying the need for the measure (e.g. site and species protection under Council Directive 92/43/EEC of 21 May 1992 on the conservation of natural habitats and of wild fauna and flora (OJ L 206, 22.7.1992, p. 7)
  • Fiktivkostenberechnungen (Kostenteilung).

Approval Planning

Our experienced approval planning team takes over the approval management for our client. This includes the following services:
