Our customers value us as a reliable partner for processing and executing energy-efficient projects in and on their buildings. Regardless of whether the assignment involves fitting out a new cold store or installing an intelligent automation system for lighting control in a family home: taken as a whole, these measures make a vital contribution to energy efficiency.

Thanks to our comprehensive expertise across all our trades (electricity, heating, ventilation, climate control, cooling, sanitation systems, security and automation, IT and telcom, technical facility management), we can offer competent individual solutions within an overall approach. Our portfolio is supplemented by reliable maintenance and call-out services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.

The area of energy efficiency is constantly evolving in terms of both know-how and technology. This is why the ongoing training and education of our workforce is essential, particularly in the context of new energy-efficient technologies such as LED, photovoltaics, geothermal heat pumps and modern control systems.
