Research and Development

We want to actively shape a sustainable future for our industry. We maintain close ties with research institutes and faculties of various disciplines to remain at the state of the art in technology and science and to implement both modern and sustainable buildings. At the same time, we are continuously expanding our in-house expertise and have set up competence centres on topics such as geotechnical and environmental engineering, special ground engineering and digitalisation. 


Focus on Digitalisation

We are committed to a number of  partnerships and cooperations to further the development of digitalisation in civil engineering. As members of buildingSMART and planen-​bauen 4.0 we actively assume our social responsibility. In addition, we are consortium partners in the BIM Deutschland Competence Centre.

Schüßler-​Plan is one of 18 consortium partners under the leadership of planen-​bauen 4.0 GmbH commissioned with the planning and implementation of the "BIM Deutschland” National Centre for Digitalisation in Civil Engineering.

Digital planning and construction are not only on my daily to-do list. Schüßler-​​Plan realised the potential of BIM at an early stage and is involved in many research and pilot projects – in some cases in cooperation with my department. The practical implementation is a major undertaking for me personally. We need companies like Schüßler-​​Plan to test the digital concept in practice, optimise it and take on commitments at a higher level.

Research Initiatives by Young Talents

We also promote specific research into trends and industrial developments by mentoring Bachelor and Master theses. Some of the past and present degree theses mentored by Schüßler-Plan include focal topics such as recycling concrete, steel concrete walls without reinforcement, adding additional stories to wooden buildings, converting an apartment building from solid construction to wooden construction or supporting structure planning based on the cradle-to-cradle principle. In this way, we succeed in supporting young talented students and provide them with some insights in our culture.
