About us

A question of balance

We believe that the basis for successful planning work is a perfect balance between creative energy, discipline, and diligence.

We attribute our success in ambitious construction projects to material spanning knowledge and conceptual thinking. Our active participation with the themes and ideas of our planning partners plays a pivotal role in the development of a structural solution, which is integrated into the overall work.

Our commitment, creativity and enjoyment of our work have consistently produced many innovative ideas that are being used repeatedly in our construction projects. Our work, however, is ultimately measured by the quality of planning services rendered. Viable and proper planning documents, as well as the awareness of costs and deadlines, are viewed as a foundation for our successful planning.

The end result is a structure where our client’s objectives are realized in the most qualitative and cost effective manner.

Profile

Weischede, Herrmann und Partner stand for structural engineering in an architecturally sophisticated environment. Three patents and numerous new developments prove our innovative style of working and material spanning structural developments. Due to the varied interests and competencies of our employees, we are in a position to cover the entire spectrum of structural engineering.

We deal with all types of structure work, from new buildings to pedestrian bridges and even sky-scrapers. We have experience with all conventional building materials, e.g. reinforced concrete, steel, timber, glass, ETFE, prestressed concrete, and various composites. Furthermore, we have been actively advancing BIM projects for several years and we are deeply committed to interdisciplinary collaboration with other planning partners using the BIM method.

In 2012, Karsten Held was appointed licenced checking engineer for structural analysis of concrete structures. His professional competence and the know-how gained through exchanges with other checking engineers benefits the entire office and thus all of our projects also.

With our own energy consultant, as well as our commitment to sustainable building, we can ensure the energy efficiency quality of our projects and implement the decisive aspects of sustainability in the planning process. We also have employees in the fields of reconstruction and listed buildings who, due to their experience and additional qualifications, can plan and conduct difficult building measures for existing buildings. Our many years of multifaceted experience with various types of facade enables us to offer competent advice in this sector as well.

Weischede, Herrmann und Partner is an owner-managed company with the following partners: Andreas Herrmann, Martin Stumpf, Karsten Held, Bernhard Rummel

Our quality management is certified according to DIN ISO 9001:2008.
