You have already frequently encountered HOCHTIEF Building: in the soccer stadium, at the airport, in a prestigious office building or when you visit a modern shopping center. We have teamed up with our clients to realize many impressive building designs, using steel, glass and concrete.
Our experience as a construction service provider allows us to keep coming up with solutions that illustrate how innovative designs and efficiency can go hand in hand. Our engineers already develop special proposals at an early stage to increase your yields and cut costs.
With HOCHTIEF Building you will always find the services you are looking for: whether you order a shell construction, industrial plant or a turnkey building.
We permanently changed the construction market when we introduced our partnership-based business models in 2005. We offer you a wide range of different contract alternatives. Thus we share project risks, say, just as fairly with our clients as the economic advantages generated by shorter construction times. Transparency and openness give rise to further, alternative contract models.
The earlier you start working with us, the more you benefit because the best time to influence costs is right at the start of planning—during the pre-planning or planning phase, in other words. During this phase, 80 to 90 percent of the costs are still variable. Once construction work starts, that figure falls to a mere 10 to 20 percent. This is what makes the pre-planning and planning phase so crucial. If you miss opportunities to make savings at this point, they are lost forever.
Our value engineering provides you with added value. From early on, we give you budget, deadline and quality security. The risk profile we compile for the project will give you a firm basis on which to make your decisions. On the one hand, we reduce your construction costs where savings potential is identified. On the other hand, we work with you to reduce the follow-on risk. Our integrated approach often leads to lower operating costs as well. It’s a win-win situation for developer and client alike.
For decades our special technical suggestions have been proving to our clients that they can realize technical high-end projects, yet still remain within budget. In fact, we are often able to identify where savings can be made through the use of alternative construction methods.
The experts from HOCHTIEF provide you with complex solutions from a single source. This begins with project preparation, takes in cost estimating and scheduling, and extends to designing the construction site and on-site support during implementation. Our planning and handling expertise flows straight into our technical planning and construction services.
These special suggestions, which are much appreciated by our clients, also set us apart from the competition. Thus we are constantly able to present innovative processes that save time and costs—during both construction and later operation.
