Profile

BGP stands for forward-looking architecture. Creativity and innovation are as important to us as an integrated approach to the brief in every aspect of sustainability: social, ecological, economic and the energy balance. We aim to take the entire lifecycle into account in producing architecturally outstanding and sustainable buildings.
Our enthusiasm and readiness to tackle diverse briefs enable us to refine certain fundamental principles continually from project to project. Each new brief represents a challenge to find an optimal consensus between functional requirements, efficient cost management, and the particular wishes and needs of our client.

Core competencies

Efficiently planned preliminary studies and outline designs allow us to assist our clients in quick decision-making. Architecture, planning, working drawings, cost and construction management are among our core capabilities. Depending on the client's needs, we provide individual or complete services, from development planning to working drawings, as well as cost and construction management.
With considerable experience as general planners, our services include coordinating engineering consults on the client's behalf, so the client only needs one point of contact. Having worked in close cooperation with many leading specialist consultants in the field of engineering for many years, we are able to avoid long planning processes and to optimise costs during the early stages.

Infrastructure and Knowledge Management

The efficient use of professional management and design tools and the continued professional development of qualified staff form the basis of our knowledge management. We take on trainees and architecture students at the ETH and FH do their practical experience unit with us.
Professional development training provided in-house and externally guarantee a continued growth of know-how.

Our Team

Design, planning and working drawings require team work. We work in clearly structured groups with flat hierarchies, which allow each member to realise his or her full potential. We make sure that each team is advised by construction specialists, beginning with the design stage. Thanks to our highly qualified staff and our dedicated partners, we are able to produce state-of-the-art solutions that stand out from the crowd. Having worked together for many years, the members of our team can draw upon a large reservoir of experience.
