The core competencies of the GuD Group of companies comprise the applied geosciences, geotechnics, dynamics and environmental engineering. Our range of services includes assessment, consultation, planning, surveying and construction supervision. In addition, we offer checking and expert opinion services. The engineers at GuD have been contributing their know-how to a wide range of projects in Berlin, Germany and at many other locations around the world since 1980. We welcome challenges as an opportunity for finding new, innovative solutions. Current scientific developments flow into our work through our close contact with universities, colleges and research institutes. Furthermore, we support the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge with our broad participation in many associations and expert committees.
We are happy to share our expertise with our clients and project partners. If you are looking for an expert in the field with many years of experience, don’t hesitate to contact us. We look forward to finding the perfect solution for you.
It is a pleasure to announce, that our colleague Sigrid Wilhelm received the best MSc-thesis award 2022 from the Berlin Chambers of Civil Engineers and Construction for her work on: “Investigation on the influence of model uncertainty in the transformation of geotechnical data for monopile foundations”. This distinguished award recognizes Sigrid’s outstanding work, which combined geotechnics with the complex topics of reliability-based design methods and geostatistics and provided besides the scientific findings well needed results of high practical relevance. Results of her work Sigrid will present on this years Fachsektionstagen Geotechnik 2023 Fachsektionstagen Geotechnik 2023.
As foundation surveyors and specialist planners for geotechnical engineering with a focus on inner-city areas, we are confronted with historical building foundations in many projects. At this year's Christian Veder Colloquium in Graz, our colleagues Josef Patron, Bert Schädlich and Fabian Remspecher presented the Pergamon Museum in Berlin as an example of the challenges that arise from the conflicting priorities of careful treatment of the historic building fabric, the high demands of contemporary building use and the imponderables of the building ground.
We would like to thank the organisers from Graz University of Technology for the opportunity to present our work, our colleagues for the exciting discussions and look forward to next year's colloquium!
The topic of sustainability in relation to energy requirements and ecological interventions is increasingly determining our work as geotechnical planners.
At the 18th Earthworks Conference on "Sustainability in Earthworks, Foundation Engineering and Hydraulic Engineering" in Leipzig Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Römer presented our status on the planning consideration of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in earthworks and road construction.
The Frankfurt GuD team went on an excursion to the Merkers mine. After a quick descent by lift (8m/second), we arrived at a depth of 500m. Underground, the temperatures ranged from 20 degrees to 28 degrees, depending on the depth. With open vehicles and humorous narrations by the drivers, we visited spectacular places such as the salt cave at a depth of 800 m, the concert hall with an impressive laser show, the museum and the gold room. After the three-hour tour, we drove to Fulda and ended this beautiful day with delicious pasta at the Italian restaurant "Basta e Pasta".
