PhilosophieOur leaseholders are at the centre of everything we do

With more than 90 employees, our business relies on flat hierarchies, as short decision-making processes are an integral part of our corporate culture. Work is done in interdisciplinary teams who can closely focus on our clients’ requirements, from development to marketing. We are also independent thanks to our own architects, draftsmen and engineers and their high level of expertise and experience.

We look after our properties throughout their entire life cycle

As builders, we predominantly develop projects for our own stock. This means that we look after our properties throughout the whole life cycle, starting with plot acquisition and project development, through planning and construction, all the way to leasing and property management. Our way of working ensures the highest degree of effectiveness during implementation and thus a great deal of cost and planning security for our leaseholders. 

Flexibility and financial strength

We develop properties that are not only user-friendly but also designed to meet the individual needs and requirements of our leaseholders. We always award construction works by trade, which gives us a high degree of flexibility and allows us to adapt plans to leaseholder-specific designs during the implementation phase if required.

Another crucial advantage in the market is our financial strength. It allows us to fund our projects entirely from our own resources - an essential prerequisite for fast and smooth project implementation.

Expansion

We accurately analyse a region’s potential and then specifically invest in sites that can be flexibly adapted for the future. We founded EUROPA-CENTER International GmbH in order to expand our real estate portfolio beyond Germany’s borders to emerging sites in the European Union. Our international team has been conducting various portfolio analyses throughout Europe since 2013. As a result, we have acquired a hotel property in the greater Barcelona area, which is being developed as a 4-Star Holiday Inn. Further plots for offices are in the acquisition phase.

The beginnings of the foreign activities of the company’s founder, Uwe Heinrich Suhr, date back to the 1980s. At the time, he acquired a number of properties in England and carried out a number of purchases and sales. Comprehensive market analyses have also been conducted in Poland, Denmark and Switzerland.

Sustainability

We develop projects for the future that are ecologically sound. When constructing our buildings, we use long-lasting building materials that are acceptable from an environmental perspective, and rely on environmentally friendly technologies such as solar or geothermal energy. For our new-build projects, we have this sustainable way of working certified by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen (DGNB e.V. – German Sustainable Building Council), or pursuant to BREEAM for green construction.
