Together, both partners want to invigorate the architecture scene in northern Germany.

.bieker reinvigorates! With this slogan, the .bieker Nord GmbH starts its journey as a  financially autonomous firm. The .bieker AG had already opened a branch office in Hanover in 2015, in order to give clients in the region a local contact partner. In November 2018, the transformation to .bieker Nord GmbH as an independent company took place. A high-performing team of 10 employees under the leadership of managing director Frank-Florian Liebe carry out architecture services from the planning through to building site management. 

Mr. Liebe grew up in Helmstedt and studied architecture in Magdeburg. After several positions in architecture companies in Braunschweig, where he worked as planner and site manager, he moved to a local utility company BS Energy in 2010. Here, as project manager, he supervised various new building and renovation projects over a period of five years. Finally, in 2016, he founded his own architecture firm in Hanover. Already at that time, there were contacts with .bieker AG. Therefore, as in 2017 the position of office manager at the Hanover branch became vacant, a mutual arrangement was almost a matter of course. In the new foundation of .bieker Nord, Liebe sees an important opportunity: „Here in Hanover we are a compact agile unit, which is also pleased to take on smaller tasks. Together with the established .bieker AG, we are also in a position to deal with large projects .“

Peter Bieker, CEO of the .bieker AG: „Frank-Florian Liebe has great professional competence and distinguishes himself with a strong entrepreneurial approach to his work. He leads his team with vim and vigour and works with great commitment to increase awareness for the .bieker Nord company. Naturally he gets all the necessary support here from me and from the .bieker AG.“

Bieker and Liebe are also united in their enthusiasm for innovative planning tools. It goes without saying that the BIM methodology is employed in work at both locations. Here, long before construction starts, a detailed digital building model is developed which enables the simulation of costs, deadlines and qualities. Currently, in both Frankfurt and Hanover, there are vacancies for new employees for this work.  

At .bieker, we have always placed great importance on well trained staff, structured working processes and an atmosphere of community. „That is the basis which guarantees the quality of our work and, at the same time, allows for creative freedom“  explained Inke Neundorf, who, as COO of the .bieker AG, is responsible for employee development and quality management. She closely accompanied the foundation of the Hanover office and made sure that, here too, the special corporate culture of .bieker AG was part of everyday working life.
