HOCHTIEF successfully delivers complex schemes through the application of innovation.

In the last year HOCHTIEF has invested over €1bn in innovation and we apply our technical excellence to create intelligent engineering solutions that add value for our clients and benefit society. From smart demolition sequences and innovative bridge slide mechanisms to our patented ‘flying’ launch method for tunnel boring machines, HOCHTIEF is continually driving forward-thinking sustainable solutions that improve buildability and drive progress in the wider construction industry.

A key factor in our success is our collaborative approach to working with client teams, designers, subcontractors and key stakeholders. Early engagement with our supply chain means that we identify opportunities for innovation at the start and we continually look for ways in which we can improve on current practices to provide our clients with optimised solutions. Our award-winning approach and inventive solutions led to ICE Innovation awards for on East Kent Access in 2013 and Pont Briwet Bridge Replacement in 2016.

With access to specialists across the wider HOCHTIEF Group, we offer our clients a wealth of expertise and experience that can be called upon to interrogate existing standards and methods and develop innovations that increase efficiency and generate value for money.
