Comment: Once again this firm recommended in construction has expanded its client relationships: for the city of Cologne, CBH is advising on the Neue Mitte project – the architectural linking of three city museums. But the activity of this Cologne-based firm extends beyond its home city. For an insurance company, it advised on the new construction of its corporate headquarters and a Swiss architectural syndicate. However, expansion of the client portfolio is proceeding slowly. Inroads into the health sector have been sluggish as well.
Strengths: Infrastructure projects, specialist real estate (e.g. clinics).
Development potential: The expansion of the firm as a whole and the expansion into four new locations (Stuttgart, Hamburg, Munich and Berlin) also has potential for the construction practice. If CBH succeeds in establishing construction competence at some locations, it will be easier to get a foothold in other new local markets.
Recommended: Markus Vogelheim (“very experienced, esp. in large projects”, competitor), Dr. Joachim Strieder, Manfred Haesemann (public law), Arnd Holzapfel, Prof. Dr. Stefan Hertwig (also public procurement).
