Whether a complex large construction site or a smaller building project: „In our experience, an individually tailored overall package of products and services can make the difference between the cost-effectiveness of a formwork or scaffolding site,“ says Christian Henkel knowingly, Head of Marketing at the Hünnebeck Deutschland GmbH. „With the help of our professional services, the client receives proven added value that translates into time and cost savings.“
Hünnebeck is one of the leading international suppliers of formwork, scaffolding and workplace safety systems and services. In addition to the original core business – development, sale and rental of systems – Hünnebeck now also offers its customers a comprehensive range of product-related services. The spectrum ranges from technical planning to product rental, cleaning and repair, transport, user training, formwork master service, comprehensive project support and construction site controlling.
For Hünnebeck, service for formwork and scaffolding is a key pillar, „which we have expanded particularly intensively in recent years“. For example, Hünnebeck has a large pool of rental equipment at its disposal on an international scale, with which it is able to flexibly cope even with peak loads. „Our many engineers, technicians and skilled workers in all areas of the company are especially valuable. They fill the service area with life – as a direct contact for the customer or as an expert in the background. The expertise and the high level of personal commitment of these people are our particular strength,“ says marketing expert Henkel, who is convinced of this.
In addition to the prioritised topics of safety and cost-effectiveness, Hünnebeck has also increasingly focused on the area of sustainability. „As a modern company, we are committed to conserving resources and minimising our impact on the environment, and we are working hard to achieve this,“ says Henkel.
Traditionally, product-related services from the rental business such as transport, cleaning and repair play a major role. Manufacturers have responded to this with professional rental services. The rental material delivered by Hünnebeck:
• Corresponds at least to the GSV standard (Gueteschutzverband Betonschalungen).
• Is processed or disposed of in the rental stations in a proper, professional and environmentally friendly manner.
• Is delivered and transported back on time in the required quantity and quality.
There is also major customer demand for application planning. Many construction companies have reduced their own work preparation and even abandoned it in some areas. Today, they purchase these necessary services from the supplier. Hünnebeck therefore offers the complete range of professional technical planning: for small and medium-sized formwork and scaffolding projects as well as for complex large-scale projects, for example in infrastructure or high-rise construction. This includes, among other things, the creation of detailed formwork plans (up to and including the representation of joint and anchoring patterns) and their provision via the digital customer portal „myHünnebeck“, the provision of 3D representations, material determination, etc.
On request, Hünnebeck experts can also take care of the complete construction sequence and cycle planning, rough and detailed scheduling, the determination of reserve quantities and rental times, the preparation of bills of quantities, static calculations and the provision of verifiable structural analyses. Looking to the future: The provision of data models in BIM is also one of the services that can be called upon.
Hünnebeck offers site supervision by an experienced Hünnebeck project manager – especially for large and complex construction projects. They provide support on the construction site in recognising deviations from the plan at an early stage and develop suitable measures to counteract them.
If you need an expert for handling, you can make use of site supervision by a formwork master. A master will provide expert instruction to the construction site team in the different systems and provide detailed information on optimal handling and use. The advantage on the construction site: more safety and efficiency through correct product application and utilisation of all product advantages. Special formwork construction In order to be able to professionally meet the growing demand for customised special formwork solutions, Hünnebeck has recently strengthened its special formwork construction division: Regional capacities are now bundled in a competence centre. Here, special formwork made of steel and wood for unusual geometries is planned, built and delivered to the
construction site as ready-to-use modules.
„Our wide range of services gives customers the opportunity to benefit comprehensively from our many years of expertise and thus secure time and cost advantages. These services cannot therefore be provided for free. How far the support should go depends on the specific conditions of the respective project and should always be decided by the client on an object-related basis,“ recommends Christian Henkel.
