HOCHTIEF has a venerable history, as well as extensive experience of the special aspects of building in other cultures—worldwide.Thanks to its mix of engineering competences, experienced project management, and its knowledge of the distinctive features of the respective countries, we are able to successfully complete our projects.
We are represented in Europe’s key markets by our subsidiaries. Our references moreover include a large number of major projects in selected regions outside Europe.
We offer you the entire spectrum of civil, underground and infrastructural engineering: road, tunnel and port-building, marine engineering, lock construction, cavern and gallery building, and power plant construction. Our experience extends from the planning to the construction of demanding projects, through to the implementation of PPP projects—from modernization to new-build. Proximity to our clients is writ large at our local units which have the character of medium-sized companies. Together with our clients we realize projects in the metropolises and, where necessary, also follow them up regionally.
Outside Germany we offer infrastructural services in the segments of transportation, energy and supply infrastructure in Northern, Western and Eastern Europe.
In this way we are able to ensure―together with our clients―that traffic flows better on modern roads and railways within and between conurbations as well as that power plants deliver sustainable energy.
Infrastructure construction in Germany–our units
For our clients, we develop customized, innovative and economically viable solutions while always observing the high standards in connection with work safety, quality and adherence to deadlines.
Essen and Cologne
In North Rhine-Westphalia we process the infrastructure market from the offices of HOCHTIEF Corporate Headquarters in Essen and Cologne. We know the respective local requirements and circumstances. Our partners and clients have been successfully cooperating with us for decades in the Rhine and Ruhr regions and other parts of Germany’s most populous federated state
There is a particularly high demand for modernization and expansion of the transport and energy infrastructure in North Rhine-Westphalia. In many places throughout the world we have repeatedly shown that we have the expertise and know-how to build infrastructure projects of varying size and complexity. For instance, HOCHTIEF experts from Essen also played an important role in the construction of the Channel Tunnel in Great Britain or the Gotthard basic tunnel in Switzerland. Hence, you in North Rhine-Westphalia also benefit from our international experience.
