Our quality of life is closely linked to a functioning infrastructure, comfortable spaces to live in, work and play, all embedded in an intact environment. This is our goal at Basler & Hofmann: we develop pioneering solutions in the areas of construction, mobility, energy, safety and environment. Consulting, planning and engineering.
Expertise at every level
We like complexity. In cases where different disciplines are required, many conditions need to be met or various interests reconciled, this is where we step in: we work across the borders of the specialist areas, keeping our eye on the big picture while also thinking through solutions to the finest detail; we moderate and mediate. Briefly: we bring our expertise to bear at all levels.
A tailor-made team
The client’s project and the requirements involved are the focus of our organisation. for every assignment we put a tailor-made team together with the corresponding competencies. Project management involves coordinating specialists, managing budgets and deadlines and serving as a central point of contact.
Thinking outside the box
Nowadays, only a few questions can be answered by one single specialist. The Basler & Hofmann group has specialists from over 30 disciplines working together. We enjoy approaching a problem from various perspectives and call in our colleagues expertise from other areas as required. This approach enables us to ensure that our solutions are resilient and practical.
All project phases
We work on numerous projects every year. This includes infrastructure projects lasting several years as well as expert evaluations completed in a few days. We supervise projects in all phases, from the first concept ideas through feasibility studies and project planning, to site management. We take on a wide range of mandates, as overall project manager, client supporter or specialist planner within a team.
With head and heart
In our projects, we work with clients, partners and other stakeholders – often very closely and over extended periods. Experience has taught us that good solutions can be found when attention is paid to collaborating on a technical and an interpersonal level. Our obligation is to both the issue at hand and to the people involved – and this is the challenge for our project managers.
