A young company with a long tradition
BUSINESS SUCCESS THROUGH TEAMWORK
We shape the future
Experience meets innovation. Construction services have been our bread and butter since 1983, and we approach them with passion and enthusiasm. A year ago, we decided to bring real General Contracting GmbH into existence as part of a rebranding initiative. In this young company, we are combining our experience from previous years with the innovative vision that a new beginning provides.
Our construction and property service projects speak one clear language. They are modern, complex, and functional, and they fulfil your vision down to the smallest detail. Together, your requirements and our ideas create a strong design that guarantees optimal workflows. Following the “design & build” principle, we provide everything from planning and costing to the final wrapping-up, all from a single source.
Expert teams for every field
We rely on a team of highly qualified experts who accompany you through every phase of your project. You will have a single point of contact, who will handle everything for you. This allows us to guarantee the efficient flow of information, avoiding the potential for miscommunication.
Our employees are our key to success. We are keenly aware of this fact and offer them regular opportunities for continuing professional development. By keeping their skills sharp, we are able to meet the high standards of quality that we set for ourselves. As a leading company in the fields of tenant’s fit-out, hotel and restaurant, retail, office and business, and public buildings, we always work under an approach that keeps one eye on the future, setting new standards for our sector.
With a powerful team, we are able to develop innovative designs for you and implement them with skill, on schedule, and consistently within budget. Above all, it is our cross-functional work that allows us to hit the mark. We are a main contractor and furniture manufacturer in one, allowing us to offer the ideal solution for your project all from a single source.
We have already brought exciting designs to life, all around the world. But as the saying goes: The best is yet to come! Challenge us.
OUR Success has three factors
SUCCESS FACTOR: IDEA
Property owners and project developers want to keep construction costs calculable for new leases. That’s why we have been a kind of ‘construction cost risk outsourcing partner’ for our customers since 2007. Since then, we have constantly been improving the performance we promise our customers. As a Design & Build partner, we are often already involved in the initial phases of the leasing agreement as an engineering advisor. Speed is a competitive advantage. When a leasing agreement is at stake, we are part of our customers’ success.
SUCCESS FACTOR: CUSTOMERS
The success of our company is based on the trust of our customers. We started out in 2007 with four completed projects. We now work on around 1,400 projects per year, and we also provide the construction services for over 400 of those projects. In 2019, we are expecting sales of over 220 million euros. We want to inspire our customers. On the rare occasions that we disappoint, we are often met with a great deal of forgiveness, because our customers appreciate the passion we bring to our work.
SUCCESS FACTOR: PEOPLE
Employees are the core success factor for any company. We are fortunate that from day one of our company, we have never had to settle for the second-best applicant for any role. Today we have around 400 highly specialised employees, who get a great deal of latitude for their ideas. Most of them have become real converts to our company vision, and many have been on this exciting journey with us for many years now.
