Special Buildings for Research & Teaching

Training and research guarantee our future care. For this purpose, researchers, teachers and learners need facilities that are precisely coordinated to their needs. For universities and government institutions, we build new laboratories and research institutes or redesign units that are already in use with state-of-the-art knowledge.

We face the diverse demands on the design of the facilities and the technical infrastructure with our expertise and experience. We ensure that the buildings are harmonically integrated into the surrounding building structure. As a result of proactive planning, we facilitate sustainable and flexible use of the research buildings.

In addition to independent laboratory and institute buildings and many administrative buildings, we also realise laboratories within the hospital structures we have designed. This includes laboratories of all security levels, from S1 to S4, research laboratories, radionuclide laboratories as well as physical and chemical laboratories.
