BPI - Competence in Planning and Design

  • Microclimatic analysis and simulations within construction projects (planning and existing conditions)
  • GIS based urban climate analysis (Urban climate function map [acc. to VDI guideline 3787]/Roughness calculations/Aerial satellite image analysis)
  • Local climate analysis (Thermal comfort [PET] / 3D-wind field simulation)
  • Solar potential calculations for facades and roofs in build-up areas
  • Support in the development of (climate-related) funding applications for cities and local authorities
  • Climatic survey reports (outdoor thermal comfort, wind situation) on planned construction projects


  •  Development of customized databases and GIS applications / extensions
  • GIS related works like mapping, analysing, planning (map creation, digitalisation of historical data etc.)
  • Drone flights - UAV analysis (aerial images, vertical temperature profiles, thermal mapping)


  • Ecological construction supervision / monitoring [acc. to HOAI – service phase 8 & 9]
  • Faunistic studies (small mammals, reptiles, amphibians)
  • Habitat classification / biotope mapping
