Service packages

  • Shell construction

    Good shell construction is the basis for success

    In building construction projects, shell construction accounts for the smaller part of the costs, but almost always for half of the construction time. Defects and delays in this key trade can therefore have negative consequences for the entire project. A neatly planned and performed shell construction phase forms the basis for deadline and cost security in all subsequent construction phases.

    During delivery of the shell structure, HOCHTIEF Building stands for a high level of in-house execution competence and absolute reliability. Of course, you can also commission us exclusively with your shell structure and thus secure HOCHTIEF’s execution quality in this area.

  • Turnkey construction

    The competent general contractor

    Since construction of Giessen University in 1879, we have delivered turnkey projects. Times have changed rapidly since then—but competence, economic viability and transparent cooperation continue to be the keys for success.

    As general contractor, we realize your project with absolute reliability. Our experienced project teams see themselves as your temporary construction department. And one thing you can always be sure of: We will complete your project with a high level of quality and at the agreed costs in time. Upon request, we also check your planning in advance in the bid phase with regard to functionality and economic viability, and develop alternative solution proposals.

    The high demands we place on ourselves also include fair partnership with subcontractors and material suppliers, as well as committing them to the HOCHTIEF Code of Conduct.

  • Turnkey construction with execution planning

    Simple interfaces—less risk

    Why should you entrust us with your execution planning? One good reason is the greater security provided by simplified interfaces and a significantly reduced risk of change orders. Drawing on our wealth of experience, we deliver or check your execution planning upon request. You can thus rely on a high level of planning quality, including a clear definition of all construction targets. In this process, we take over responsibility for timely completion of the planning in sync with construction progress.

    Active reporting on the planning status and timely procurement of all required approvals and permits is standard business practice for us. This makes for increased time schedule reliability during project execution. We also take into account logistics and construction sequences as early as in the planning phase.

  • Turnkey construction with optimization of construction targets

    The construction teams secures cost and time schedule targets

    You want to focus on your core competencies and are looking for a construction partner who supports you in this in a competent and solutions-oriented way? Then turnkey construction with optimization of construction targets is the right solution for you. Because it gives you a high level of planning reliability while at the same time reducing costs.

    You just have to let us know your draft-based specifications regarding performance and functions. We analyze your project and make sure the budget and time schedule side early on. In this process, our team develops partnership-based solution proposals and alternatives together with your conceptual design partners—always in an open dialog and with transparent costs.

    A key component of HOCHTIEF’s performance in this connection is the end-to-end approach to your project. We consult you on the effects of alternatives not only from a technical view, but also include in our analysis aspects of relevance for user and asset management, life-cycle costs and operational aspects.

    In line with the project situation, this model can be combined contractually with numerous forms of remuneration.
