General planning & client representation for logistics and production centres

Production and logistics processes are crucial for the success of a company! We know this from 35 years of experience in project and construction management. We not only design and plan a suitable logistics center or production building for you, but also realize your project including all planning and monitoring services.

At the beginning of our cooperation we discuss the project together with you, identify your wishes and requirements as well as the resulting processes. In addition, our consulting services take into account any necessary adjustments that need to be considered for future company developments. Finally, the solution concept incorporates further framework conditions, restrictions and potentials of the entire planning process – with one clear goal: to be able to present you with the optimal project solution in the end. Sustainability and optimization of energy use have top priority here.

In addition to the planning and implementation of the building project, we also develop comprehensive, technical solutions, organizational and IT concepts. In particular, we keep an eye on the interfaces between the individual trades.

Thanks to their many years of experience, our experts identify potential risk factors as early as the planning stage, thereby avoiding cost-intensive supplements and changes during the construction phase. At the same time, this ensures agreed deadlines and costs, so that nothing stands in the way of an optimal and smooth realization of your project.

As project managers, we are responsible for the successful completion of your logistics project. This means that you do not need to worry about procedures and processes, nor about any obligations or engineering services. Our project management ensures compliance with all planned phases as well as transparent communication with all contractual partners and project participants.

What are the advantages of using a general planner or client representation?

The advantages of external project and construction management for the overall planning of your construction project are obvious: Quality increases and costs as well as deadlines are under constant control. All specialist planners and project managers are united at a central point and ensure that the checklist of individual planning steps is continuously worked through and the scope of services is fully met.

This not only saves the client a lot of time, but also energy and nerves, since the effort required for handling and coordinating construction work, construction supervision, and even the entire execution plan, is eliminated for him.

IWL stands for a reliable cooperation between all project and planning participants as well as for a correct realization of your goals and interests.

Project organization without or with general planner – An example

Without support

In projects without a general planner or owner’s representative, the owner himself is responsible and obligated as the contact person for his construction company, including planning, project development and implementation. And this in addition to his actual day-to-day business.

In this case, execution is often uncoordinated and unnecessary financial or time expenditures are incurred. Construction contracts or contracts with individual architects and specialist planners are concluded by the client himself. Gaps in the contract or vague formulations often turn into expensive supplements.

With support

On the other hand, you can concentrate on your core business and trust us as the partner at your side. As general planner and owner’s representative, we ensure a smooth process from general planning, adherence to schedules and budgets to quality in the implementation and realization of your project.

Our specialist engineers and architects take over all essential planning steps around your building project.

What is the difference between general planner and general contractor?

General planner

  • Planning, client representation and project control are in his hands
  • Acts in the best interest of the client
  • Works with partners selected/approved by the client
  • Strives for high quality in connection with specified costs
  • Watches for faulty and technical defects and has them professionally reworked
  • Demands the rights of the client and enforces them

General contractor

  • Is commissioned for the planning and production of all trades
  • Optimizes its own economic efficiency in the context of the assignment
  • Works with own partners (usually non-transparent for the client), uses cheaper subcontractors if necessary
  • Has faults and defects eliminated cheaply and inconspicuously
  • Claims additional expenses and supplements on his own responsibility
  • Is motivated to enforce his own rights

IWL works as an independent and neutral general planning office and building consultant – not as a general contractor. It is important to us that the interests of our clients do not conflict with our interests.

Leading companies trust in our services

What does client representation mean?

Increasing diversity of regulations, laws and standards, complex project structures, non-transparent tender catalogs, constantly new technical developments, a market that is overheated in places and, on top of that, day-to-day business: these and many other challenges are what companies have to face today when planning new buildings, retrofits or expansions.

IWL supports you fully:

  • through a transparent way of working and a project management that easily communicates logistical and construction details and coordinates interfaces
  • through an optimal performance description and all necessary as well as advancing planning services
  • through a clear overall concept from the planning process through individual task areas to the final building.

Furthermore, we support your decision-making processes and manage a speedy project progress. Thanks to the many years of experience and competence of our project managers, we guide you safely through the intensive realization phase. We always act in your best interest. Practice shows that – as soon as a general planner takes over – this pays off after a very short time.

In short: You as the client do not have to worry about details or problems – IWL, as an expert, takes over all the tasks of the client and takes care of your workload as well as ensuring the success of the project. Our principle is to always be the central contact for our client.
