Wisdom comes from experience

Project success is no coincidence; instead, it is the result of putting the right skills and expertise to the right use at the right time.

The architecture firm Architekturbüro Rüdiger Franke was founded back in 1989 and offered services covering all aspects of classic architectural work. By the end of the 1990s, its main area of activity had increasingly shifted to focusing on contract and construction management, and it also added client representation and project management to its range of services. In this new role, the firm took on mandates both directly from clients and building owners and as a sub-contractor and partner of renowned architecture firms that tended to focus more on planning and design.
