Infrastruktur und Umwelt

Transportation and spatial development

Fast, safe and comfortable transportation links are indispensable for internationally integrated societies. With Europe opening up more and more, a forward-looking and intelligently planned, environment-friendly transport infrastructure is required.

The development of such infrastructures as the construction and extension of airports involves a high conflict potential. On the one hand, a region benefits from the airport as an important employer and location factor. On the other, the residents are negatively affected by aircraft noise. INFRASTRUKTUR & UMWELT offers support in transportation-related projects, from the initial concept via strategy formulation and preliminary design right down to the analysis of noise harassment.

We are supporting communities and regions in sustainable development, which entails the balancing of economic, social and environmental targets. Goals and measures to achieve them are determined cooperatively, with the different stakeholders contributing their knowledge and ideas, accepting the results, and independently implementing the measures. Spatial development nowadays cannot ignore the implications of climate change and must develop local and regional adaptation strategies accordingly. We assist our clients in making the appropriate decisions.
