Always that one step ahead: Our R&D.

Anyone who, like WTM Engineers, wants to bear to shape the future with daring ideas, needs to already know what will be technically feasible tomorrow. For this reason, we have always been curious to find out all about technological innovations and are passionately interested in research findings. By collaborating with almost all the leading German universities and research institutes, we remain abreast of the latest scientific insights.

We are involved with various research committees and standards boards and concern ourselves closely with new construction methods and innovative building materials. By lecturing at universities, we make certain this knowledge is passed on to the next generation of engineers.

Our R&D activities.
