Architectural and engineering planning services are an important pillar in the range of services offered by the Öko-Zentrum NRW. Our clients benefit from the many years of professional experience provided by our architects, civil engineers, building physicists and experts.

In addition to schedule and cost reliability, we attach particular importance to close cooperation with our customers and the companies carrying out the work on site. As planners, we provide our customers with all services from a single source – from the development of concepts to monitoring.

Our range of services covers all areas from public buildings, administrative and commercial buildings, commercial and industrial buildings to residential buildings. We implement energy standards according to the EnEV (a regulation in Germany describing minimum requirements regarding energy use of new and renovated buildings), as a KfW-efficient house or building (the KfW is a German state-owned development bank) or as a passive house.

New Construction

In the planning and realization of new buildings, we feel particularly committed to sustainability in addition to economy and functionality. We implement economic, ecological and socio-cultural quality in architecture in a concrete and verifiable manner. For public and private clients we work out targets, concepts and construction projects for defined building qualities.

Energy-Efficient Renovation

Without losing sight of the big picture, our energy efficiency department investigates the efficient use of energy and the optimisation of the thermal building envelope. We develop energy concepts, submit applications for subsidies for our customers and carry out subsidised consulting services. Based on the results of these consultations, we can also prepare feasibility studies or expert opinions for project preparation, in which the proposed measures are carefully examined (LP 0).

Damage Remediation

The Öko-Zentrum NRW stands for comprehensive and efficient redevelopment planning and looks back on many years of experience and high competence in the ecological redevelopment of old buildings. From the very first site visit, we focus on holistic refurbishment concepts to create highly efficient, modern buildings and a comfortable indoor climate. We prepare feasibility studies and renovation plans, undertake building physics calculations and implement them. In the context of the elimination of construction defects, the focus of any redevelopment planning is to permanently eliminate not only the symptoms but also the causes of the damage.
