Press Release  (4489 character)

After a transition phase lasting three years ATP architects engineers has assumed control of 100 % of the shares of the former Haid+Partner GmbH in Nuremberg. The move enables ATP to expand its expertise in the fields of health, care, and rehabilitation even further.

With a team of over 700 architects and engineers ATP is one of Europe’s leading integrated design offices. The company is currently paying special attention to the health sector.

ATP’s fourth office in Germany (after Munich, Frankfurt, and Berlin) is known as ATP HAID architects engineers and enjoys a typical ATP two-person leadership  in the shapes of the architect and town planner Urs Klipfel and construction engineer Dr. Andreas Rieser. “It is with great respect for the successful work carried out by Haid+Partner over the past four decades that we are taking over this 25-strong team of employees with its unique expertise, especially in the health sector,” confirmed the Managing Directors. Projects currently on the drawing board include the new Central Medical Functions building (ZMF) of the University Medical Center Rostock and the 6th phase of Klinikum Passau, with its facilities for diagnosis, therapy, and care as well as its rehabilitation and out-patients clinic.

By appointing the German architect and town planner Urs Klipfel as a managing director, ATP’s Nuremberg office will benefit from his unparalleled experience and know-how gained during more than 20 years as a planner in the research, industrial, and automotive fields as well as his specialist knowledge of sustainable design with BIM.

Urs Klipfel: “Our aim is to develop a planner of specialist objects into an integrated designer in the health, research, and industrial sectors. Our architects and engineers in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Croatia, and Russia are looking forward to the opportunity to work with their new colleagues as they support their clients in creating outstanding buildings.”

This merger between two successful companies has even more potential. Both offices are experienced integrated designers with ISO 9001 certification. Most particularly, under the leadership of Professor Haid, Haid+Partner established new standards in the field of health buildings.

“The technique of designing within central data models perfectly supports our cultural approach with its interdisciplinary cooperation between architects, structural and building services engineers, and site supervisors”, explained Andreas Rieser. “Both our employees and, especially, our clients benefit from this enormously.” During his 20 years with ATP the Austrian engineer has made a major contribution to drawing up standards and methods. His international experience and the know-how in the ATP network are the best prerequisites for the further development of ATP HAID architects engineers.

With ten offices across Europe and specific design-related consulting offices, ATP is regarded as a pioneer in the field of integrated design. Since 2011 ATP has been designing with the support of BIM (building information modeling), a forward-looking planning method.

In view of the highly-complex tasks in the health sector our ATP health experts in the areas of medical, laboratory, and kitchen technology represent an invaluable connection between the client and the design team. Together with the know-how from lifeline©, an ATP consulting company for organizational planning in the health sector based in Offenbach am Main, ATP has comprehensive expert knowledge in the health sector. “Together with our team at ATP HAID architects engineers Nuremberg we are looking forward to many exciting projects”, said Klipfel.
