General planning

Develop complex building projects with experienced general planners. We provide all architectural and engineering services from a single source.

Complex building projects benefit from lean planning processes, professional know-how and a fixed contact person for all tasks and project phases. This keeps coordination and information channels efficient, and prevents interface problems from arising in the first place. As an experienced general planner, we take on all architectural and engineering services in accordance with HOAI regulations and, if desired, also undertake control and management tasks. An optimum result is our top priority - your budget, deadline and, above all, quality specifications have the highest priority for us.

The cornerstones of our general planning

01  Design planning
Basic evaluation and preliminary planning are at the heart of the inception of every project. On the basis of these, we develop the design planning, discuss concept variants and contribute to your development project. The end result is a solid overall concept with high quality standards and well-founded cost and schedule prognoses.



 Approval Planning         02
We enter into continuous dialogue with the approval authorities at an early stage, thus avoiding a possible crash landing later. Today more than ever, the building permit represents the result and compromise of the various interests of very disparate parties – making the many years of experience as well as sound diplomacy and management skills of the general planner all the more crucial. We are also happy to get involved when questions and specific problems arise during the approval process for works in existing buildings and develop viable economic solutions together with you.


03     Implementation planning
In the run-up to the invitation to tender, we specify all the contents of the approved design with regard to finishing, structural and electrical planning. The key to success is the smooth coordination of the various specialist areas. That is why we attach great importance to well-founded know-how and long-standing cooperations and partnerships in our teams. And we always remain your fixed contact in the pool of people involved.


 Tendering & Awarding         04
The construction industry is busy. This makes good knowledge market knowledge and careful preparation of tenders all the more important. We coordinate the tendering process, draw up specifications and bills of quantities, determine the appropriate cost frameworks and prepare the awarding of contracts.

05     Construction supervision & site management
As general planners, we can take on far-reaching tasks for the client on request. The site supervision is carried out by experienced staff, supported by specialist site managers for individual trades. As general planners, we ensure that the work is carried out on schedule, to the required quality standards and economically efficiently.

Hamburg Residential Market 2021

As a gateway to the world and a city on the water, Hamburg combines an urban lifestyle along with plenty of nature. In times of change, the northern metropolis on the banks of the Elbe is also reinventing itself, but never forgetting its roots as a traditional port and merchant city.
