Industrial Planning

The challenge for manufacturing companies

Industrial companies have to deal with a large number of simultaneous requirements in order to make their locations worldwide sustainable. These include:

  • Digitization under the umbrella term Industry 4.0
  • the repatriation of production in order to ensure the supply of the continental market – keyword nearshoring instead of offshoring
  • ensuring the availability of materials under the umbrella term resilient supply chain
  • the phasing out of fossil fuels for energy production to decarbonise and achieve the European Union’s Green Deal
  • the achievement of the European Union’s goal with regard to the recycling of products – keyword Zero Waste
  • the recruitment, training and further training of appropriately qualified personnel
  • the creation of framework conditions to meet the requirements from the health sector – keyword COVID-19

Our solutions for this

Within the framework of industrial construction planning, we work on integrative approaches to solutions to meet the above-mentioned requirements. We are happy to take on the integrated planning and implementation of small and large projects. But we can also take over the performance of proportional planning tasks in projects, such as steel construction planning alone. Due to the interdisciplinarity within our company, we can put together project teams to suit any task. Digitalisation, keyword Digital Factory and Industry 4.0, is our constant companion. The digital twin is developed and set up from the beginning of the project.

Our core markets are the DACH region (Germany-Austria-Switzerland) and the Alps-Adriatic region (southern Austria-Slovenia-Northern Italy). On behalf of industrial companies we are also represented in the rest of the world with our industrial construction planning.

Our services range from the initial project idea to participation in the selection of land and property, classical engineering, the purchasing process, execution supervision, commissioning and participation in the warranty phase. Together with our partners, we are also happy to provide support for applications for subsidies within the framework of project financing.

Your added value

  • Minimization of the cost and deadline risk:
    • the digitization of the existing situation by means of 3D scan and implementation of this into the industrial and steel construction planning project
    • the award as overall planning contract – from feasibility study to basic design, from tendering to supervision of the construction and commissioning phase.
  • The project will increase the security of your investment:
  • Ongoing cost and schedule control
