Increasingly greater demands are placed on modern buildings. As early as in the planning stage, demands for a high level of safety, flexibility throughout the entire life cycle, a low level of environmental pollution, the integration of renewable energies and low costs must be taken into account in order to exploit the full potential of economic efficiencies and fulfilling technical demands.

A special challenge is the coordination of the individual installations.

Basically, the main installations are: heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration, fire protection, protection against intrusion, building control system and electric power distribution. With innovative planning, the requirements are not simply broken down to the individual installations, but have to be coordinated.
