Building Information Modeling is a digital method for the planning, construction project management and operation of buildings. Planning efficiency, quality and certainty are all enhanced, as all players work on the same model – the so-called digital twin – from the outset. As data is continuously processed throughout the entire lifecycle of the building, principals always have all relevant information at their fingertips.
Our building services engineering (BSE) service develops and plans energy-saving, economical concepts for your building. Our teams of experienced BSE experts are accustomed to working across all disciplines. Collaborating with you, the principal, and the architect, we develop and realize sustainable technical solutions that work from the outset.
Construction logistics makes an important contribution to smooth processes on building sites because their locations in inner cities, works complexes – or even in tourist settings – can create complex and diverse infrastructures and environments. Moreover, a variety of different requirements and approaches can arise which sometimes place extreme demands on the logistics.
With our Construction Management (CM), we provide project management and integral construction management from a single source. We control the planning, awarding and execution of the project according to the client's specifications, taking particular account of the factors of cost, time, quality and good cooperation. The special feature of Construction Management is an all-embracing consulting approach. This approach also includes the expertise of the executing team. With our Lean Management, we coordinate planning and construction processes in the best possible way to optimize building production.
Our General Construction Management (GCM) team takes over complete responsibility for the execution of your project. We combine project management, planning services and construction management into a complete package, thus ensuring smooth planning and execution processes. In combination with our BIM management service, GCM allows extremely economical planning and execution processes to be realized in a short time.
Ideally, specialist planning competency in building construction disciplines and building services engineering (BSE) must come together to ensure that a building site operates smoothly and that the construction project remains cost-efficient. Integral Construction Management achieves this. Using Lean methodology, we consolidate all construction management services for cost groups 300 (construction works), 400 (BSE) and 500 (external works) into a single service for the entire construction phase – from invitation to tender through to building operation.
By acting as a professional ‘temporary project department’, Drees & Sommer supports you by undertaking all delegable tasks for the duration of the project. A project organization that is tailored to your requirements and our tried and tested schedule and cost control services combined with quality surveillance ensure cost-efficiency and adherence to the binding overall budget and quality standards within agreed realistic timeframes.
In service phase 8, generally known as site management, we manage execution planning for cost groups 300 to 500. We create a schedule, document construction progress, and take responsibility for site supervision. We also coordinate cooperation between the contractors involved, inspect and approve building work, and take responsibility for auditing of accounts and cost control. In this way, we ensure the cost-efficient completion of work on schedule and in top quality.
Whether purchasing or selling properties, accurate and reliable information is the basis for a successful transaction. Our Technical Due Diligence service provides you with concrete data on the key data and quality of properties, as well as their value enhancement potential, risks and possible deal-breakers. A detailed on-site inspection provides a sound basis for decision-making.
Our project team advises the client and supports planners by providing technical & economic construction consulting. We check planning content for compliance with the functional, qualitative and economic requirements of the project and, if necessary, arrange for revision of the plans, thus ensuring that everything continues to work smoothly after handover.
