What is ECE’s role in this project, and what is yours?
As with many of our major projects, we at ECE have a wide variety of tasks, which is what in the end makes it so exciting. On the one hand, we are the client’s representative for all services such as project management and control, and we take over the project management for property companies. This calls for close cooperation between us as developers and our colleagues from other business units such as Architecture & Construction. That is because we can offer innovative solutions to the challenges posed by such a major project only 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: in the general planning, the placement process, in obtaining financing, approaching tenants and in the leasing for all types of use – office, hotel, retail and catering – for the property companies. In short, we offer the all-round carefree package.
I, personally, am responsible for managing the property companies within the joint venture. In the course of this, my tasks here are also very versatile. For example, I also form the coordination interface with our partner STRABAG Real Estate.
