Planning the planning

A host of specialists and only one contractual partner for an optimum result.

Lead Consulting

We take over the complete planning process and the supervision of the realisation of the project. When commissioning HPP as master planner, there is only one contact person for the client, the single contractual partner: HPP International. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of HPP Architekten GmbH, HPP International Planungsgesellschaft mbH carries out architectural and master planning projects both abroad and for foreign clients.

The demands placed on large-scale projects continue to rise.

Many disciplines were in use even in the past. But due to technological, social and structural upheavals, the complexity of construction projects today continues to increase: It is now a matter of economy and sustainability; innovation and identity; individuality and being standard-compliant; long-term value and rapid completion; digital possibilities and material quality.

We solve all these challenges for the client without increasing the number of project managers. We consolidate our architectural services as well as all planning services required for a construction project in the master planning phase.


A single partner for the multitude of challenges

Advantages for the client

  • significantly less administrative effort thanks to a single contractual and contact person

  • the liability risk for interface coordination is eliminated

  • qualified planning team selected using our comprehensive network

  • we take on the original building owner’s tasks in the areas of quality control, costings, deadlines and contracts

  • no need for detailed reconciliations for the client

As master planners, we guarantee a building of outstanding architectural quality that meets deadlines and costs.

"Quality begins when putting the team together."

Alfred Schwab, Managing Director HPP International, Lead Consulting Division

We are convinced that quality starts with the composition of the team. At HPP, this generally consists of our architects, interior designers and master planners. 

When it comes to selecting the right specialists, we can draw on our experience from a large number of completed projects and the legacy of our practice: We have an extensive network of specialist consultants at our disposal, with whom we have already worked successfully in the past.
