Cooperation

Joining forces for success!

Due to previous as well as current activities, memberships and offices of the managers, we have a broad network and outstanding contacts.

Thus we can fall back on the support and expertise of large experts and specialist companies even at different fields of activity, if necessary.

Partner

Due to the function of Prof. Ziegler as chair holder and the long lasting activity of Dr. Aulbach at RWTH Aachen University, we have best private contacts to the several chairs and institutes of civil engineering as well as to related faculties.

In particular because of the contact to the Chair of Geotechnical Engineering (www.geotechnik.rwth-aachen.de) and the Institute of Foundation Engineering, Soil Mechanics, Rock Mechanics and Waterways Construction at RWTH University, we are able to plan, coordinate and control laboratory and technical tests, this includes the monitoring of testing anchors and sophisticated numerical investigations as well.

Furthermore we dispose of a broad network outside of RWTH Aachen University. Thus we can come back quickly and straightforwardly on the support of experts in their own subject area, e.g. reinforced concrete construction or building legislation, if issues go beyond the scope of the geotechnical engineering.
