Environment & Spatial Planning

We guide you through the legal, technical, social and creative requirements of your design task.

The increasing scarcity of natural resources and simultaneous changes in the global climate is increasingly influencing legislation and jurisdiction of the European Union, and of the German national, regional and local governments.

These conditions call for complex planning services and coordination processes, with environmental designers and technical specialists working as equal partners. We are highly familiar with permit application procedures in Austria and Germany thanks to our years of experience. Our expertise in both planning spheres enables us to find targeted solutions, and to communicate and implement them optimally.

The Environment & Spatial Planning division has also performed technical assessment of international infrastructure projects for ten years, and knows the environmental and social standards of international banks (e.g. EBRD, ADB).

We operate in the following areas:

  • Transport and pipeline infrastructure (rail, expressways, pipelines and power cables)
  • Energy systems (e.g. hydropower and wind turbines)
  • Mining and opencast mining
  • Landfill sites
  • Urban development and open space design
  • Retail and wholesale centers
