Why do we believe in future-oriented engineering?

Working with conventional technologies and following well-known standards can provide us with a sense of security. Equally, it is sometimes argued that out-of-the-box solutions are, what the client and the people prefer. Maybe some of this is true...

Unfortunately, in the past this has often led to a mere duplication of project content, instead of reacting to the real project context in an appropriate manner.

We call this engineering of the last century. Why?

Still every third human being on this planet does not have access to adequate sanitation, our groundwater gets contaminated and is depleted, our rivers flush waste to the oceans, our climate changes rapidly. There is some room for improvement, right?

We respect and value established approaches and technologies, but we also want to contribute to the change that is already happening, and think different.

Our engineering approach

  1. We combine technical solutions, economy and societal background and create an holistic approach for your project. 
  2. We think outside of the box and demonstrate potentials for your own improvement. 
  3. We support the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of your projects.

We offer expertise in

  • construction planning and supervision
  • water supply and wastewater treatment
  • solid waste management concepts (SWM)
  • biological waste treatment (aerobic, anaerobic processes)
  • industrial wastewater treatment
  • integrated sanitation and new alternative sanitation systems (NASS)
  • environmental impact assessement (soil, water, wastewater)
  • infrastructure planning for emergencies and reconstruction
  • technical advise for decentral photovoltaic systems

Further on

  • international cooperation projects
  • capacity development
  • scientific evaluation of infrastructure and development projects
  • content management in community participation processes
  • moderation and mediation processes
