“The topics of repositioning, restructuring and redesigning, especially with sustainability in mind, are playing an increasingly important role in the current market phase and will continue to do so in the future. For this, we not only have to know the needs and requirements of different user groups, but also give customers planning security,” says Philipp Hirtler, Managing Director of Planungsgesellschaft Langos mbH.
