Our Philosophy

Finding solutions for the future Innovations for your research and development by highly sophisticated test facilities.

We guide and assist our clients from conceptual to detail design, procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning to the perfect final results.

Our vision - what we stand for

As a leading overall planner for R&D facilities, we make an active contribution to a sustainable future.

Our mission - what sets us apart

We combine innovation, sustainability, forward-thinking and high quality in our worldwide projects.

Our strategy - how we develop further

We expand our expertise with new technologies and apply them to new business areas.

With our Business Strategy 2028, we are driving forward ecological issues (CO2, sustainability, resources, recycling, energy, soil, etc.) and linking these with economic aspects: The building with a long service life, built from pure resources, with the lowest possible energy consumption - both during construction and later in operation.

Our engineering philosophy

Derived from our corporate strategy, sustainability together with the tools and processes of Lean Construction and Building Information Modeling form the DNA of our holistic engineering approach.


With our projects, we promote topics of ecology (CO2, resource-efficient material selection, recycling, etc.) and link them with economic and social aspects: long and flexible use, low life-cycle costs, promotion of innovation, creativity and communication. Therefore, we have developed the SBI sustainability concept.

Lean Construction

With the SBI Lean Construction concept, we transfer the principles of lean management to our projects: avoidance of waste – in engineering, designing and realization.

Building Information Modeling

Building Information Modeling (BIM) enables digital, collaborative and efficient project execution. With the intelligent 3D building model as a central tool, engineering, tendering and realization as well as cost and schedule management are model based.
