The BKW Group is an internationally active energy and infrastructure company based in Berne. It employs some 10,000 people. Thanks to its network of companies and competencies, it offers its customers comprehensive end-to-end solutions. It plans, builds and operates energy production and supply infrastructures for companies, the private and public sectors, and offers digital business models for renewable energies. Today the BKW Group’s portfolio ranges from planning and consulting engineering for energy, infrastructure and environmental projects, through integrated offerings in the field of building technology, to the construction, service and maintenance of energy, telecommunications, transport and water networks.
One of the five areas of competence of BKW AG is BKW Engineering, to whose network emutec GmbH has belonged since October 2018.
BKW Engineering unites over 30 successful engineering companies from Germany, Austria and Switzerland under one roof. Whether consulting, planning, surveying or project management – together they cover all engineering needs in the fields of building construction, transport and civil engineering, water and environment, and energy in the DACH region. In addition, they offer expert opinions and inspections for all major construction and infrastructure projects as well as special services such as risk and safety analyses.
Regionally anchored and appreciated by long-standing customers, each company has full corporate responsibility for its projects. At the same time, the network bundles many resources, competencies and extensive knowledge in order to offer customers added value.
All companies are successful in the market and are characterized by proximity to customers and regional roots. All companies appear with their own brands and bear full responsibility for their projects and customers.
For customers and employees, BKW Engineering should be more than the sum of its parts. To promote networking and the exploitation of synergies, a lean, centralised organisation has been established in which the companies are also prominently represented. BKW Engineering is an independent competence area within BKW.
The history of BKW Engineering is young and the network is developing dynamically. However, engineering services are an integral part of the over 120-year history of the parent company, BKW, headquartered in Berne (Switzerland). The planning and construction of power plants and electricity grids are among the most demanding engineering services ever. Since the early days of BKW Engineering, new markets and competencies have been opened up through the addition of new companies.
