We provide next to all planning activities – from the preliminary layout to the development of technical details. This will range from a first layout and cost estimate through all planning and permission phases, site supervision, cost control and, if desired, after-service to the client. We offer complete planning services and site supervision for your project, both to Central European standards (e.g. the German HOAI) or to International and English standards
We offer design services for new projects, redesigns and renovation of golf courses.
