What is ECE's role in this project and what is yours?
As with many of our major projects, we as ECE have a variety of tasks, which is ultimately what makes it so exciting. On the one hand, we are the developer's representatives for all services such as project management and control and we take over the project management for the property companies. This requires close cooperation between us as developers and our colleagues from other business units, such as Architecture & Construction. After all, given the challenges posed by such a major project, we can only offer innovative solutions if we always work together as a strongly functioning team and benefit from each other's expertise. On the other hand, we also act as a service provider for the property companies: in general planning, the placement process, obtaining financing, approaching tenants and leasing all types of use - office, hotel, retail and gastronomy. In short, we offer an all-round carefree package.
I am personally responsible for the management of the property companies within the joint venture. In the course of this, my tasks here are also very varied; among other things, I also form the coordination interface with our partner STRABAG Real Estate. Being able to take responsibility for such a significant development in my home town is also very motivating personally.
