Th Metroplan procedure optimally aligns factory planning and architectural planning with each other and thus always keeps an eye on implementation.

For the efficient design and realisation of economical production facilities, we keep the essentials in focus:

  • Aligning with core processes and production types
  • Identifying appropriate equipment, infrastructure and building techniques
  • Focused implementation management and controlling

The location strategy forms the foundation for all further developments and planning phases. A systematic location analysis and selection are the starting point for a sustainable development of the market as well as the establishment of an optimal production and logistics network. Strategic issues are clarified (e.g. strategic demand analysis, make-or-buy analyses, technology selection) and thus the entrepreneurial basis for plant development is defined.

The master planning provides a site vision for new sites (green field), but also for plant expansion or restructuring (brown field) and enables targeted growth. Based on the strategic requirements, we develop a sustainable concept for site development in the plant structure planning and define the development stages towards full expansion. The basis for strategic decisions of the management is thus laid. A concept design creates investment security for the realisation decision. In addition to the design of the production processes, the dimensioning of the machinery and production logistics, the factory layout and building design are the focus of attention. If a new building is the planning result, the building planning in the work phases of the HOAI begins at this point.


The production and logistics processes are the central themes of the shop floor. By making use of of lean management methods, we support the optimisation of production planning and control up to shop floor management. At the same time, we design optimal logistics processes and dimension the necessary warehouse technology. The detailed planning of the factory is based on the factory concept and is closely linked to the building planning.

During implementation, we support you in defining the user requirements for the building, in tendering for operating equipment and in planning relocations. As a general planner, Metroplan offers you comprehensive services in the field of planning and implementation across all work phases of the HOAI, from preliminary planning, building design and approval planning, preparation and participation in the tendering of contracts to site supervision during implementation.

All relevant planning and implementation services relating to the installation, expansion and optimisation of production facilities are provided from a single source. One contact person for all phases and levels of detail.
