Design & Engineering

Integrated planning at the highest level.

With the Design & Engineering area, we support all steps from planning to implementation. As an independent subsidiary of the ϲ Group, pde Integrale Planung GmbH combines planning expertise with experience from the operational construction sector. For years, we have been using innovative methods such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) and LEAN Management in planning, calculation and coordination. This is how we create the best conditions for the efficient realisation and sustainable use of your building.

Our services focus on combining attractive design and structural requirements within our customers’ defined quality, time and cost framework. On the one hand, it is necessary to observe the requirements for load-bearing capacity as well as the applicable construction and protection regulations – on the other hand, construction projects should be visually appealing and blend harmoniously into their surroundings. To combine both aspects, ϲ relies on innovative methods in the planning and construction process and always approaches projects holistically from planning to completion.

The use and ongoing development of modern technologies such as BIM and LEAN management are the basis for sustainable project success, efficient work, and maximum transparency. From bid management to construction preparation and supervision, to general planning and building certification: We maintain the design idea, plan economically and manage the necessary processes efficiently. We do not just consider a project during its implementation phase, but throughout its entire life cycle.

Architecture – the (preliminary) draft for your visions

Preliminary architectural drafts as well as approval and general planning are the foundation of safe and cost-effective execution of construction projects.

To implement designs as faithfully as possible, the experts from our sister company pde Integrale Planung work in close cooperation with our experienced construction teams and all the trades involved throughout all planning phases.

Ongoing project optimisation, interdisciplinary planning teams, and use of the model-oriented 5D working method within the BIM framework enable a holistic view of each project. The classic 3D building model is supplemented by adding the dimensions of time and cost. The result is sustainable and cost-effective solutions that focus on individual customer requirements. We support you from the initial idea through to the turnkey structure.

Construction preparation – good preparation for an optimal process
 

Smooth processes on the construction site are an important factor for the successful realisation of a project within the defined quality, time and cost framework.

They require efficient construction preparation – including the calculation and planning of auxiliary construction measures, as well as coordination of resources such as equipment, materials and personnel with regard to safety, and technical and legal feasibility.

In this context, construction preparation forms the link between specialist planning and the construction site, and ensures that the transition runs smoothly. The integrated planning approach enables constant exchange between the departments and leads to constant optimisation of the work processes. We support you safely and economically in all phases of your construction project.

BIM – a holistic, digital process for creating and managing information.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a digital and integrative approach to the planning and execution of projects in the construction industry.

Using BIM optimises the entire process chain within planning and construction, and ensures greater transparency, reliability and efficiency. It significantly improves cooperation between all those involved in the construction process, from planning to construction acceptance.

As a pioneer in the field of BIM, we set standards and offer our customers innovative and effective solutions for their construction projects. The building data model is the core of digitalisation. All building data is combined and visualised in a digital model creating a digital twin. This data foundation brings together experts from all disciplines in a team in order to be able to precisely map the entire life cycle of a building.

BIM is therefore used in more than just planning and calculation, it also provides benefits in construction, interior fitting, property marketing, and subsequent facility management. This means that almost all phases in the project life cycle can be approached holistically.

Fire protection – a comprehensive and effective concept

During the planning phase of a construction project, many regulations and requirements must be taken into account, especially regarding the planned use of the building, and the current fire protection regulations.

Effective fire protection is a decisive factor in any structural planning and therefore requires a comprehensive fire protection concept. Early fire protection planning is therefore a priority.

Direct cooperation between the client and the pde Integrale Planning team ensures that relevant fire protection aspects are identified and taken into account early during building planning. As part of the planning process, the fire protection concept is coordinated with the responsible approval authorities and the fire service. This significantly simplifies the approval processes. We support you from the start of the project and take care of all fire protection documents required for the planning permission.

Building certification – a seal of quality for sustainable construction

The construction industry has a significant role to play in ensuring sustainable construction practices. We look at the sustainability of construction projects right from the start. Our common goal is to structure the planning, construction and operation of buildings in such a way that their entire life cycle is environmentally and economically sustainable.

Building certification systems, which are considered seals of quality for sustainable construction, are an important element of this.

Our services are wide-ranging and diverse: We optimize projects by reviewing existing concepts in terms of sustainability and suggest alternative approaches to our customers. We also perform the relevant building physics calculations and handle the process for the desired certifications. Our range of services is rounded off by carbon management, life cycle assessments and sustainability assessments according to the EU taxonomy.

At ϲ, we plan according to recognized construction guidelines and are proactively involved in the further development of leading building certification systems such as LEED or BREEAM. We work in close cooperation to plan and build according to the requirements and wishes of our customers and support you throughout the process until construction of the certified structure.

General planning – maximum transparency for all planning services

General planning means taking an interdisciplinary approach where all planning steps are interdependent and considered over the entire life cycle of a building.

The specialist areas of architecture, building physics, structural planning, technical building equipment (TBE), construction preparation and fire protection are seamlessly integrated and work together on a cost-effective, sustainable, and permanently transparent solution for our clients.

A digital building model is at the core of this work. Working with Building Information Modeling (BIM) is standard for all parties involved in general planning. BIM has been used at ϲ for some years now, and is constantly being further developed. Its integrative method helps to avoid planning errors and to calculate costs precisely. It also improves transparency for our clients, as their involvement in all of the planning steps allows them to follow the three-dimensional creation of the structure in the digital model. This ensures that every construction phase is conducted safely and cost effectively.

LEAN management – efficient and cost effective thanks to LEAN methods

Lean processes from planning to completion – we ensure continuous improvement by applying LEAN management methods to every construction phase. All the steps in the construction project are clearly defined and analysed in advance.

This enables us to optimally organise the necessary resources and time requirements. Communication is promoted between the respective planning and construction teams, processes are mapped transparently, and delays in the flow of information are significantly reduced.

Thanks to the LEAN working method, it is possible to implement custom construction services with integrated processes – on schedule and within our customers’ budget. This enables quick decisions, on-time delivery and cost transparency.

Building services planning - technical building equipment for our customers’ individual requirements

Requirements in the areas of sustainability, energy efficiency and smart building are constantly increasing.

The costs of building services planning are taking up an ever-increasing proportion of total construction costs. At the same time, requirements for building security in compliance with the prescribed standards are becoming increasingly complex, and specific requirements for user comfort are also growing.

As a full-service provider with a holistic planning approach, we approach your project from the start as a collaboration between different specialist areas in order to achieve the best possible result.

The early inclusion of all trades relevant to technical building equipment – heating, air conditioning, ventilation, sanitation (HVAC), electrical engineering and building automation – saves costs and resources in the long term. We identify optimisation potential and the best possible implementation, use Building Information Modeling (BIM), and prepare the data for subsequent building operation.
