It Only Works with Partners
To meet the tight timeline, we expanded our team. For example, Markus Kopp, who coordinated all the jobs perfectly in his role as construction manager. And dozens of specialist planners, who collab-orated with us to develop the fire protection, ventilation and joinery solutions.

Von Beginn an war die Kommunikation unkompliziert und professionell. Die Leidenschaft und das Engagement spürte man bei jedem Schritt in Richtung Ziel.
