KBP

For over 35 years

KBP has been developing and planning innovative, top-notch solutions for highly efficient building services.

We advise our customers on the implementation of sophisticated real estate projects, from development to completion – from concept to commissioning and beyond.

Building services design

Mechanical and electrical engineering

The integration of all technical systems in buildings is becoming increasingly important. Comfort, costs and the growing demand for sustainability are essential factors to consider.

The consistent pursuit of integrated planning is the basis of our work. In project teams of engineers and experts from all disciplines, we develop efficient and valuable solutions in an interdisciplinary planning process, optimally adapted to the type and size of a project. We offer a holistic set of planning services to our clients – across all trades and planning stages, and customized according to the needs of our customers.

From the first planning stage, we rely on a consistent, BIM-capable 3-D design. Together with continuously improved planning tools for design, dimensioning and cost calculation, we can offer our customers a maximum of time and cost security. At the same time this detailed planning is essential for the successful floating of tenders, commissioning and site management.

General technical planning

Complete building services design from a single source

KBP serves as the general building services planner for the comprehensive technical design of a project.

In addition to the building services design, KBP offers the full range of technical engineering, such as building physics, fire engineering or lighting design in collaboration with highly professional specialists. A well-established team – 100% performance from the beginning of a project.

KBP also provides complete general planning including the building design for technically oriented projects.

In close collaboration with our customers, we develop the best solution for the respective project.

Examples of our work in general planning:

In addition to building services design and general planning, KBP offers further services:

Systems Engineering

Planning and building in a digital world

Our extensive experience in combination with state-of-the-art planning methods allows us to go a step further: approaching building design by dividing it up into modules.

The purpose of Systems Engineering is to describe buildings with all their uses and geometric aspects as a holistic data model, starting with design, leading to realization and ending with facility management (life cycle model). Through rigorously systemic thinking and implementation from the very beginning of the building design, we significantly improve the efficiency of the planning process while at the same time achieving better results in a shorter time.

Technical Infrastructure

Comprehensive supply systems

KBP accompanies your building project beyond the connection of the building to the public supply. We design infrastructure networks for supply, disposal and communication with the same diligence and competence we use to implement the systems within buildings.

The main focus is on planning public supply within large projects, whose objective is to utilize infrastructure for connecting various properties. Whether it be the creation of completely new, superior service structures or the connection and extension of existing networks – KBP will design a future-oriented and efficient solution for you.

From extensive understanding of the user specifications for the individual buildings, we create supply systems that meet all requirements for safety, comfort and sustainability.

Technical Due Diligence

Stable, independent and competent

The result of all technical due diligence carried out by KBP is a reliable, independent and competent assessment of the technical installations in buildings. It supports the owners, buyers and sellers of a property comprehensively and individually in their decision-making processes by analysing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT).

Detailed tests of the properties regarding technology, environment and law are carried out with the highest professional expertiese in all trades.

We provide an evaluation of the state of technology and systems and a well-founded assessment of the required financial investment and the future cost scenario.

Technical and economic controlling

Ensure quality, optimize results

In the area of quality assurance, we support our clients throughout the entire duration of a project or particular stages. The offered services are available for either some or the whole of the trades – always depending on the needs of the project.

As an independent entity, we closely monitor the consistency of planning and execution with the specifications of quality and performance in the project.

With state-of-the-art tools, outstanding professional know-how and intelligent methodology, we support our clients to avoid long-term design flaws, recognize deviations and secure the investment framework. For us, quality is the result of cost-benefit analysis, target-to-target comparisons and the creation of efficiency and transparency.
