About us

Above and beyond general planning

Founded in 2012 in Vienna as a general planning company, our scope has steadily expanded over the years. Nowadays, we consider ourselves an incubator for new, innovative ideas, with a focus on sustainable planning. We believe in building for the future. We use the latest methods and tools – building information modelling (BIM) and LEAN Management – to work at the cutting edge and set new standards for planning and design. With these groundbreaking techniques, we can confidently implement technically and architecturally complex or time-critical intricate construction schemes, while staying true to the original design vision. With this approach, we are pioneers for the complete building cycle. We will work hand in hand with you from planning to completion.
