Who we are:

MANAGING DIRECTOR

jgh@advancebau.com

Johann Gathmann

 

He is a mechanical engineer and his entire professional life has been in construction and energy.

He sees every day the opportunities there are in using energy in an advanced, efficient and intelligent way and how easy it is in most cases and yet it is not done.

We all have a responsibility to reduce our emissions. It is urgent.

He sees resilient and sustainable construction as an opportunity for growth, change and purpose, and also as a clear and profitable business strategy.

He is your independent, expert and neutral support. He understands your case and your circumstances and lays out the options you have.
And you decide.

And once we manage to transform it, he leaves it in your hands. Or accompanies you as long as you need.
