Education partners

We are dedicated to cooperation with research facilities for transferring the research results of universities and higher education institutes into innovations for the construction industry. As visiting lecturers, we give lectures and seminars at higher education institutes.

We cooperate with the vocational academy Berufsakademie Sachsen in Glauchau and are a training company associated with the Leipzig Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Something we are particularly proud of are our cooperation agreements with Leipzig University and the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HWTK).

Expert appraisal & standardisation activities

Our experience from experimental testing is particularly valuable for assessing materials, building products, components and methods, as well as for applying standards and guidelines. We are happy to contribute this expertise to committees of experts, consulting committees and standardisation work. Please find below a selection of the institutions we are involved with.

Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt)

The German Structural Engineering Institute (DIBt) is a technical authority in the area of construction. The Institute performs its work based on an agreement between the federal government and the federal states. Its most important duty is to approve non-regulated building products and methods.

The association of material testing bodies “Verband der Materialprüfungsanstalten e. V.” (VMPA) was established in 1948 as a professional association. Since 1997, the VMPA e.V. has been keeping a directory of competent testing bodies for concrete and noise abatement.

European Committee for Standardization (CEN)

The European Committee for Standardization is a non-profit organisation to support the European economy in global trading and to promote environmental protection. CEN is one of Europe’s three biggest standardisation organisations.

Deutscher Ausschuss für Stahlbeton (DAfStb)
