We trust in our business relationships

Trust and responsibility instead of assigned tasks

Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), is a collaborative construction project procedure in which the relevant participants are involved in the construction and planning process from the very beginning. They collectively carry both benefits and risks. IPD demands more than people, technology and processes. The term implies a new culture of cooperation.

IPD embodies the project goals and creates consequences for success or failure. It puts all project participants in control and makes them responsible for the overall project outcome – not just their individual performance.

Planner 4.0

In the special edition of the company podcast thermoplan talk, Urs von Arx, CEO of the HHM Group and Adrian Steiner, CEO of Thermoplan AG talk about the special features of IPD. Urs von Arx is not only CEO of HHM, but as a planner of unique, he also integrates digitalisation into the conception phase. Since all parties are involved in the construction (client, planners, entrepreneurs, suppliers, etc.) as early as possible, a large amount of information is available. All (construction) data from the various entrepreneurs are generated, collected and implemented in a digital twin of the new plant 5 building.

In traditional construction projects, the individual phases run sequentially, the trades only come on board when they complete their own tasks. "This is no way to create innovation." Urs von Arx assesses this approach. "If the whole is understood by everyone involved through the digital twin, more thoughts, experiences and heart and soul are brought in – and they influence the result in a positive way. Digitalisation forces us to constantly question processes. Digital building enables me as a builder to make better decisions." Adrian Steiner explains the approach, which requires courage on the part of the builder and planner, but delivers a significantly higher quality in the end result. By avoiding communication breaks and competence wrangling and by tackling the individual levels together, quality, costs and time come to a level for all involved. The jointly achieved success is also shared jointly, which is reflected not least in the salary of the entrepreneurs.


Our partners

Thermoplan relies on long-term and trusting partnerships throughout the entire business process. For the new building, we also opted for existing partnerships and placed orders directly. All contractors are already known and involved in the project.
