Focused on flawless facilities Why inner qualities count Architecture is often a contentious topic. Shapes, colors, and materials have different effects on different peo­ ple. Questions such as how functional a building is and whether people feel comfortable in it are much simpler to answer. There are unambiguous criteria for this. And these criteria have a lot to do with building services en­ gineering. Only a sound technological infrastructure can provide a building with the kinds of characteristics people expect: functionality, comfort, security. Technical facilities are the lifeblood of a building - they provide it with its elec­ tricity, its water, its air, its heating, and its capacity to cool. These same building services transport people and goods, as well as moving data and information around; and they protect people and their tangible assets against possible dangers by warning against fire and continuous­ ly monitoring the entrances. Careful planning cuts costs - it's a fact. The planning stage will decide whether people will be satisfied or frustrated with their building's energy costs. An efficient, maintenance­friendly infrastructure saves on operating and servicing costs for the entire lifespan of the building, and thereby protecting the long­term value of the real property. Why we prefer to go the whole way Make no mistake about it: the technological engineer­ ing of a 21st century building is a complex undertaking. Countless individual components are locked together like cogs in a giant machine. We like to view this "clockwork" as an integral whole - particularly when we're the gen­ eral technical planner in charge of engineering all of the building's services and facilities. The end result: a com­ plete integrated solution. The big advantage of this approach is a lean, logical infrastructure that comes with an individual contact per­ son for each and every section, whether it be electrical engineering, ventilation or climate control. That translates into lower administrative costs for you, fewer interfaces and clear communication channels. Our motto: efficient design, efficient operation.

Partners plan together We're convinced that the best way of reconciling form, func­ tion and profitability is through an integrative design. That's why we seek out talks with architects, project managers, specialist engineers and public authorities. And the earlier we're brought into the designing process, the better we can coordinate our ideas with the planning partners. The end result is a clean technological design that complements the creative, constructive, and functional features of the building. A dozen reasons why you should work with us We advise you on competitions and with the estimation of technical floor space and standard costs. We keep in focus the overall concept of the building. We ensure that the technological engineering runs seamlessly behind the scenes without encroaching on the building's design. We show off the architecture in the right light with the appropriate luminance concept. We have already worked with many prominent architects, civil engineers and project managers who are both rigorous and precise. We know the ins and outs of public building projects. We have experience with large projects and with technically complex building structures, such as concert halls and laboratory facilities. We're the German engineering firm with the most experience in the electronic engineering of road tunnels. We clarify the interfaces for other technical planners in good time so that frictional losses are reduced to a minimum. We implement energy­saving technologies and in so doing protect the long­term economic viability of the structure. We manage safety issues and health protection at your building site. We consistently plan our solutions within the framework of your budget and we adhere to agreed­upon deadlines.

The strength of our structural engineering What do a beer garden pavilion, a spa complex and a Catholic community center have in common? They form part of the 600 projects appearing on our reference list for structural engineering. The uses of these buildings vary as much as the demands placed on their amenities. We therefore always de­ velop a technological infrastructure customized to the exact contours and purposes of that particular building, and which functions unobtrusively in the background. At the center of our area of expertise are buildings with complex technological infrastructures such as schools, administrative departments, hospitals and sports halls. The benchmark is particularly high when it comes to public works. Here, the building services engineer has to successfully combine a multiplicity of demands: maximum comfort in the workspace and customer zones, failsafe perfor­ mance, high standards of hygiene, as well as innovative energy configurations. In essence, the engi­ neer has to strike a balance between optimal quality and optimized cost­efficiency while complying with all standards and regulations. Fortunately, the experience and expertise we have built up over the decades allows us to address all of these challenges with complete confidence.

Light not just at the end of the tunnel We may not be able to move mountains, but we can certainly get people through them. Our systems feature in more than 300 tunnels, helping traffic to flow freely and safely. Our reference list boasts several large projects, including the Thuringia Forest Crossing, the Dusseldorf Kö­Bogen tunnel and the Cologne­Lövenich noise control enclosure. In fact, these tunnels are three of the most challenging engineering projects to be under­ taken in recent years in Germany. We actively seek out large, complex projects because such challenges help us to grow and bring us into contact with new technologies. And this helps us to keep one step ahead of the competition. With new technologies and innovative cabling and safety systems we are able to attain maxi­ mum safety in line with the official German guidelines for equipping and operating road tun­ nels (RABT). Various analyses, including lighting engineering inspections, acoustic tests and radio frequen­ cy measurements, help us to develop optimal strategies both technically and economically. Through our work for and with various committees we are able to keep abreast of the latest engineering developments and any new regulations in the pipeline.

Engelberg Basis Tunnel The new construction was carried out under difficult geological conditions 60 meters below the old tunnel at Leonberger Dreieck. Traffic had to be maintained during the entire period of construction. This challenging project required flexibility, imagination and constant adjustment of provisional electrical measures to cope with changing traffic conditions. Thuringia Forest Crossing A mammoth project requiring four tunnels and several bridges to be put through the Thuringia Forest without adversely affecting the environment. The project included the Rennsteig Tunnel, the longest road tunnel in Germany. In some instances the structures had to be erected paral­ lel to one another and this presented substantial challeng­ es for the technical engineering and project management. Rostock Subaqueous Warnow Crossing This first privately financed road tunnel in Germany con­ nects the east and west banks of the Warnow River in the Hanseatic city of Rostock. A toll is required to use it. The unusual construction method (immersion technology) presented some equally unusual challenges for the tech­ nological engineering. Diversity in underground engineering Technical engineering for: Freeway tunnels Highway tunnels Inner city tunnels Other tunnels Tunnel and traffic control centers Traffic control systems Environment data acquisition systems Engineering for special installations: Hydropower plants Flood retention basins Pumping stations
