Max Aicher Bau GmbH & Co. KG
A construction company with tradition and has been combining traditional quality standards with state-of-the-art working methods since 1924.
Ralph Hößle and Thomas Rössler, Managing Directors of Max Aicher Bau GmbH & Co. KG: “In order to have long-term success today, digitization is an essential factor. With the iTWO enterprise solution, we can ideally map our processes. The major added value of the RIB iTWO end-to-end solution is to centrally manage all data and to create transparency and more efficiency in all areas.”
DEGES Deutsche Einheit Fernstraßenplanungs- und -bau GmbH
The project management company of several federal states and the federal government with the realization of significant transport infrastructure projects since 1991.
Andreas Irngartinger, Head of Digital Planning and Construction at DEGES: “The more intensive cooperation with RIB is a consistent step in our digitization strategy: with the new software, we are even better able to connect our BIM models with the planning and construction processes. Model-based cost calculation, digital model-based invoice workflows and model-based service recording are just a few key points in this context. Especially the possibilities of iTWO 4.0 will help us in the future to connect our construction sites with mobile devices, to create dashboards and to integrate external partners into the processes of DEGES.”

A family-operated construction company that has been planning and implementing demanding infrastructure and construction projects for 129 years.
Michael Voigt, IT Manager of HEITKAMP Group: “Here in the Ruhr region, a handshake still counts more than any promise. Even if that may sound a bit nostalgic: We know very well what needs to be sealed. HEITKAMP is committed to results so that our customers receive individualized, smooth processes as well as high-quality and on-time construction. As we have aligned our entire company organization to this end, we consequently also decided to switch to more modern technology in our long-standing cooperation with RIB. We are convinced that iTWO 4.0, as a holistic solution, will provide us with targeted support in the complete workflow. Among other things, it will enable us to implement our projects even more effectively, to evaluate them in greater detail and to manage our resources even better.

Founded in 1919 and one of the leading structural and civil engineering companies in Bavaria, Germany.
Georg Gerhäuser, Managing Director of Georg Gerhäuser Hoch & Tiefbau GmbH: “Sustainability not only plays a decisive role for us in the implementation of our buildings – this was just as important in the choice of suitable software. To improve our technical and commercial processes in project handling – for construction as well as in the property development sector – we have decided in favor of the completely integrated RIB solution. In addition to the consistency of the system, we were also convinced by the mobile construction site management, which enables more effective work directly on site.”
Alfred Döpker Construction Company
A leading general contractor founded in 1965 and a reliable partner in existing buildings/renovation/modernization or shell construction.
Christian Schaefer, Managing Director of Alfred Döpker: “Two things are invaluable in our construction industry: many years of experience and continuous development. We combine both – tradition and innovation – under our roof and remain true to these values when choosing our partners and software. A few years ago, we already made the change to a more modern RIB solution in the calculation department – now we are following suit in other areas. We are looking forward to being able to plan, control, manage and evaluate our projects with the assistance of the iTWO platform. We were also convinced by the consistency of the system and the use of modern technologies in the ERP area.”

Cornelia Czenkusch, authorized signatory, quality management representative and head of department at POLYGONVATRO GmbH: “To consolidate our system landscape and thus improve the entire claims handling processes, we opted for the RIB ERP solution. In addition to seamlessly covering our planning and execution processes, our focus was on digital collaboration with our partners and customers using a holistic and fully integrated end-to-end solution. The possibility of flexibly and efficiently mapping the diverse requirements of our service areas with this system ultimately convinced us. In addition, in RIB we have found a partner who, just like us, is strongly committed to the topic of sustainability.”

To meet this requirement, we at Kutter work with state-of-the-art technology. Thus, we also rely on professional solutions when choosing our software and with the iTWO platform, we have opted for a modern technology that will considerably simplify our core processes in planning, calculation and implementation. In addition, with RIB we have found a strong pioneering partner who shares our passion for construction and supports us in driving forward digitalization within the Kutter company.”

We are looking forward to a further successful cooperation”.
A leading construction and property development company in South Africa. Roelof van den Berg, Founder & CEO of the Barzani Group: “Our vision as a business is to become the first construction company to automise its processes and completely change the landscape of the field. To achieve our goals and be successful, the choice of technology and the right technology partner is essential. As an existing RIB CCS client, we have come to know and trust the technology solutions that they provide, and it was a natural progression making the move to RIB’s flagship MTWO solution. We consider ourselves a forward-thinking, technology-driven industry leader and MTWO will further empower us in our mission to convert traditional construction processes into digitally automated workflows.”
One of the world’s leading energy technology companies.
Stephan Streck, Program Manager at Siemens Energy: “For our projects in plant construction, we need special software that supports us and our project partners from quotation calculation to construction inspection. We have been able to gain experience with RIB’s iTWO 4.0 platform in recent years, which helps us in this regard. We are therefore expanding our existing iTWO 4.0 contingent in order to support even more projects in the solutions business with it in the future.”

It will enable us to implement our projects more effectively and to analyze them in greater detail, as well as to manage our resources even better.”
An Austria-based company specializing in the operation of gravel and ballast plants.
Kurt Bernegger, Managing Director of the Bernegger Group: “For more than 3 years, we have been working on expanding our business area to include the production of precast concrete parts, as the trend towards industrialised construction is unmistakeable and we can hardly meet the demand after the acquisition of Ratzinger GmbH 2 years ago. In addition, we want to expand our delivery programme to include precast wall parts and other customer-specific solutions to be able to supply our customers completely. With RIB as a digitisation specialist in the construction industry, we want to process and implement our projects in an even more optimised way.”

We are starting to optimize these processes in the Rental strategic business unit – it is possible that other companies in the Zeppelin Group will work with iTWO 4.0 later. In addition to the comprehensive functionalities of the resource management modules, we were convinced by the permanent availability and accessibility of the software. So, we will use the managed services in the RIB MTWO Cloud under Microsoft Azure. Furthermore, we want to benefit from RIB’s many years of expertise in the optimization and digitalization of construction processes. RIB supports us in integrating the highly flexible iTWO 4.0 technology into our existing system landscape in order to take full advantage of the possibilities of the RIB platform for us.”

Rainer Kolthoff, Commercial Manager at JOHANN BUNTE: “The joint venture of JOHANN BUNTE and STRABAG will completely document the whole construction cycle of the joint A1 freeway project with iTWO. In addition, the portal function of the RIB platform enables a more optimal collaboration between the joint venture and its subcontractors. We are looking forward to implementing this major infrastructure project even more effectively with the help of iTWO technology.”
Gerald Malits, Function Lead of BIM integration / technical ERP STRABAG BRVZ: “STRABAG has successfully relied on the innovative iTWO technology for the planning and calculation of its projects for several years. The decision was therefore an obvious one to also work together with RIB on two other large construction sites. On the one hand, we will use the iTWO enterprise solution to plan and implement our construction measures for the “HS2″ rail project – the UK’s new high-speed rail network. On the other hand, we will benefit immensely from the iTWO technology and RIB’s experience in the expansion of the A1 freeway”.
