Drees & Sommer: your innovative partner for consulting, planning, construction and operation
We deliver our services on the understanding that economy, functionality and process quality are just as important as ecology, architecture and wellbeing. At Drees & Sommer, this holistic and sustainable approach is called ‘the blue way’. With approximately 2.400 employees at 41 offices worldwide committed to our clients’ success, we achieved sales of EUR 334,8 million in 2016.
Drees & Sommer and EPEA Internationale Umweltforschung Hamburg are jointly committed to Cradle to Cradle®, bringing principals, investors, architects and manufacturers together to promote the approach.
The company is also involved in the trendsetting field of “Blue Buildings” – the buildings of the future – because the foundations for tomorrow’s world must be laid today. The demands made by both investors and users – as well challenges of the social and political environment – continue to increase. Buildings of the future are to be healthy and eco-friendly, while at the same time esthetically sophisticated and superbly integrated into the infrastructure. Raw materials have to be used sparingly and users expect buildings to offer features of the networked world – and all this at reasonable cost.
Drees & Sommer has outlined the requirements for the building of the future: Healthy, flexible, smart, economical, emissions-neutral, integrated and energy self-sufficient are the seven attributes of the ideal property. Drees & Sommer delivers solutions to achieve these properties economically over coming years. Because Blue Buildings combine outcomes that appear – at first glance – to be incompatible: Properties that not only give the property owner a good return in the future, but also ensure that the property remains marketable in the long term. This requires the property to be, amongst other things, sustainable, innovative and above all economical. And this has its price. But precisely because they are sustainable and future-proof, Blue Buildings will continue to generate the returns the investor desires for years to come. Solutions offered by Drees & Sommer include Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Lean Construction Management (LCM®), allowing more economical planning, construction and operation of the buildings of the future.
