Form and function in concert

Our jobs


Our approach

We offer comprehensive lead consulting services and planning trades from a single source. In this sense, our "Integrated Building Design" approach encompasses all technical, organizational and also economic services required for implementation.

In our project work, we also focus on a clear concept and our own architectural and sustainable philosophy in the field of Architecture for Industry.

View of architectural plans and hands

Architects and engineers develop these together in interdisciplinary teams, creating individual concepts to suit our clients’ precise needs – across all service phases.

Let us for a moment, compare a building or production facility to the human form. We have a skeleton (the framework/ structure) which gives us our rigidity and stability whilst allowing us to flex, move, grow and adapt to our needs and environment. We have organs (processes, building services, support functions) which animate us, power us take in life-giving energy, remove waste, allow us to think, process, produce things and alter our future. We have our skin (roof/ façade) which protects us from our environment as well as aiding in keeping us warm, cool, waterproofed and allows us to breath to keep us fit.

Insight story

I like alternating between my desk and the construction site. It’s great to see the buildings we designed using Building Information Modeling (BIM) come to life on the construction site.
