The expert for industrial buildings


Philosophy and mission statement

We plan, design and execute industrial building projects. Our aim is the greatest possible efficiency for your production – with the aid of industrial buildings perfectly matched to your production processes. Factors such as the production process, goods and personnel fluxes, hygiene and clean room requirements, and the expansion potential are therefore at the centre of our planning process right from the outset.

You thus get operations and construction planning from a single cast, regardless of whether it is a new build or the expansion of an existing system.

At the end of the line are sustainable industrial buildings:

We work in small, and therefore hard-hitting, teams of industry experts. IE Graphic, IE Food, IE Plast, IE Life Science and IE Technology are embedded in the IE Group, which has been a market player since 1966 and provides the necessary financial backbone – even for large construction projects.

This is what we’re made of

We specialise in industrial buildings in five different industries. Our extensive experience in these fields mean that we speak exactly your language and understand your production processes. Our industrial buildings are therefore uncompromisingly planned, from the inside out.

Our IE industry-specific engineers, architects, planners and logistics specialists all work for a common cause, allowing us to create industrial buildings that convince from any angle. Production processes, technical building services and architecture are thus optimally coordinated.

Here at IE Engineering, all employees are stakeholders in the company, meaning you can rely on our teams’ motivation and initiative. Experience a new kind of partnership in cooperation.

Our planning and implementation guarantees give you complete security in terms of costs, deadlines, quality and function. From the initial design idea, through the choice of production technology, operational and logistics planning, to general planning and implementation, we execute all project stages – including in work contract format.



We have a clear methodology, you have complete control

When you choose IE, you’re not signing a blank cheque. We work in clearly delineated project stages. This allows you to examine the results of our collaboration from phase to phase and to correct where necessary – from the initial idea through to implementation.

At the same time, your cost security is enhanced from project stage to project stage. You can rely 100 per cent on adherence to costs during project implementation. We give you our word on that – and contractual guarantees.



Trust and transparency characterise the customer–IE relationship

With our transparent procedures and guarantees, we primarily follow one objective: a robust partnership with our customers characterised by mutual trust. This is the most fundamental requirement for close cooperation and is decisive to the success of our projects.
