When implementing projects like reconstruction, deconstruction or new construction of buildings, dealing with contaminated construction elements or contaminated ground is often inevitable. Therefore, investigations regarding the building fabric, ground and groundwater will be necessary. Thus, the property's price, the risks regarding remediation requirements and the remediation costs can be calculated (Environmental Due Diligence).

For deconstruction measures BfU offers consulting services including construction management of the entire project. We survey remediation works, the gutting of buildings and deconstructions and also handle waste management. In our role as the waste generator’s representative, we are experienced in the electronic documentation procedures in compliance with German law (NachwV).
