Move to Brückenstrasse, Chemnitz

After almost 25 years of “Am Flughafen 2” and a constant growth of the team, it once again became too small. That’s why we moved to new, larger offices at Brückenstraße 13 in the center of Chemnitz.

Planning

We are happy to support you in the realization of a project in the course of planning. Our focus is particularly on the solution-oriented approach and on the interactions of the planned plant with the environment as the sum of its protected assets. Approval procedures can only be accelerated with a cross-interface concept. We are also happy to support international investors with approval procedures in Germany.
