You have already frequently encountered HOCHTIEF: in the soccer stadium, in a prestigious office building or when you visit a modern shopping center. We have teamed up with our clients to realize many impressive building designs, using steel, glass and concrete.
Even on your way to work when you drive on a modern, well-developed road; at airport check-in or going on your vacation, when our bridges and tunnels make sure that you have a smooth trip. Often HOCHTIEF has planned, built or modernized it.
With HOCHTIEF you will always find the services you are looking for: whether you order a shell construction or a turnkey project. We have bundled our competencies regionally in highly qualified units. To fulfill your wishes, we put teams together who deliver precisely what you require, and will go with you wherever you need us.
Our clients appreciate our professional approach and the special technical solutions we offer which may often speed up construction, or make projects more sustainable or more efficient.
Now we have regionally bundled our infrastructural expertise in highly qualified units.
The best planning is worthless if the work itself is poorly executed. For decades our experience of the construction phase has always flowed into the planning and logistics of new projects. Moreover the quality and services of our partner companies must meet HOCHTIEF’s stringent demands. In addition, our Risk Management sets standards that far exceed the statutory requirements. We are continuously improving our service. These are just a few features that give you security for your construction.
HOCHTIEF’s construction projects are sustainable—they are both technically and economically compelling. We enjoy an outstanding international reputation when it comes to complex building construction as well as tunnel or bridge construction.
To ensure that traffic can flow smoothly, HOCHTIEF undertakes transportation projects using state-of-the-art control technology. This means uninterrupted traffic flow and lower carbon dioxide emissions.
As a specialist for developing port logistics, we enable the fast and affordable transshipment of goods, and create the basis for growth. Furthermore we expand and upgrade railway networks. Our globally recognized planning and implementation expertise is the basis for your success.
HOCHTIEF is also a leading player in the energy sector. We plan, build and modernize power plants of every kind. The construction of climate-friendly power plants is as much part of our core competencies as is the building, modernization and dismantling of conventional power plants.
We permanently changed the construction market when we introduced our partnership-based business models in 2005. We offer you a wide range of different contract alternatives. Thus we share, for example, project risks just as fairly with our clients as the economic advantages generated by shorter construction times. Transparency and openness give rise to further, alternative contract models.
The earlier you start working with us, the more you benefit because the best time to influence costs is right at the start of planning—during the pre-design or deisgn phase, in other words. During this phase, 80 to 90 percent of the costs are still variable. Once construction work starts, that figure falls to a mere 10 to 20 percent. This is what makes the pre-design and design phase so crucial. If you miss opportunities to make savings at this point, they are lost forever.
Our value engineering provides you with added value. From early on, we give you budget, deadline and quality security. The risk profile we compile for the project will give you a firm basis on which to make your decisions. On the one hand, we reduce your construction costs where savings potential is identified. On the other hand, we work with you to reduce the follow-on risk. Our integrated approach often leads to lower operating costs as well. It’s a win-win situation for client and contractor alike.
For decades our special technical suggestions have been proving to our clients that they can realize technical high-end projects, yet still remain within budget. In fact, we are often able to identify where savings can be made through the use of alternative construction methods.
The experts from HOCHTIEF provide you with complex solutions from a single source. This begins with cross-border project preparation, takes in cost estimating and scheduling, and extends to designing the construction site and on-site support during implementation. Our planning and handling expertise—acquired from many major infrastructural projects—flows straight into our technical planning and construction services.
These special suggestions, which are much appreciated by our clients, also set us apart from the competition. Thus we are constantly able to present innovative processes that save time and costs—during both construction and later operation.
