What we are like

We find solutions, bring people together and shape tomorrow’s world.


As a company, we are entirely to our customers, our employees and our purpose. KREBS+KIEFER rigorously tackles complex architectural engineering tasks to successfully complete building projects. In doing so, we always aim to find the best of all possible solutions. With our roots in science and research, we use the latest knowledge and technology to bridge gaps, bring people together and make life better with the structures we build. 

We have been creating buildings for generations.

70 years ago, the engineering office in Darmstadt was founded out of the chair of solid construction at the Technical University of Darmstadt (TU). Prof. Dr.-Ing. Albert Krebs, a former employee, became a partner in the 1960s. Their work was committed to the ethos of creating buildings that would benefit many generations to come. One of their principles was: “Consistent quality in structural and civil engineering”. Today we offer a range of work that goes far beyond the usual engineering services.

We treat our partners and employees as equals.

Partnership, loyalty and integrity are our principles, which we live by both internally and externally. Close cooperation with the client – and within our own company across locations, departments and teams – enables us to work with a focus on our goals. We treat our partners and clients in our network as equals, so that everyone benefits from the shared knowledge. Our presence on site always guarantees the connection to the customer and the project. This is how we create ideal solutions, even for individual wishes.

Structured, professional and optimally equipped.

Stringent project management and a structured and professional approach to tasks – in planning, inspection and during construction – form the solid basis for the success of our projects. Integrating state-of-the-art technology and methods creates a stable framework for all demanding activities and also enables us to meet our economic responsibilities. 

With experienced and highly trained specialists, a broad range of services and our modern equipment, we can optimally master any challenge. The expertise we have accumulated, updated and expanded over the years enables us to turn all our projects into reality.

Encouraging the next generation

The many different tasks in construction require highly qualified specialists and excellent soft skills. It is important to inspire young people and provide them with expert support as they embark on their careers. Many of our senior managers are actively involved in training, apprenticeships and motivating young people.
