Intelligent cost management

Clemens-Beck Primary School, Speyer, Germany

The architects Elwert & Stottele planned the extension of the Clemens-Beck Primary School and construction of a new Children's Day Centre in Dudenhofen - Speyer using the Design2Cost method.

Another factor was the poor state of three classrooms located in a separate detached building, which required urgent remedial action.
