Bau-Consulting Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing. (FH) Laurenz Görres


Welcome to my website: Bau-Consulting Laurenz G├Ârres. BCLG is a consulting service to solve problems of construction management. It originated from my passion for construction management. Ever since I was a trainee in a large-scale construction project in India in 1996, I have been fascinated by project management and international construction projects.

My professional career has always been in line with these interests and I have spent several years as a site manager on construction projects in India, Nepal, Saudi Arabia and other countries.

Back in Germany, I have worked for construction companies such as DYWIDAG International GmbH, STRABAG AG, BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH on (large-scale) construction projects overseas: as a project manager, tender engineer, cost estimator or work preparation engineer.

Dissertation Dr.-Ing. Laurenz G├Ârres

My experience in international construction projects and my interest in such enterprises led me to take up doctoral studies at the Institute for Construction Management at the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich in 2009. The subject of my dissertation was "Project management of large-scale projects in the pre-contract phase". It was initially limited to the particular problems of handling overseas construction projects (from a German perspective), but the subject was extended at the beginning of 2013 to "large-scale construction projects in general". This change was necessary in order to cover the problems of projects such as "BER Airport", "Stuttgart 21 Railway Station", "Elbphilharmonie" and other projects that were going wrong at that time in Germany. The dissertation was completed in the summer of 2015.

The dissertation partly lists the points reflected in the "10-Punkte Aktionsplan" ("action plan") of the "Reformkommission Bau von Gro├čprojekten" ("commission to improve construction of large-scale projects") of the BMVI (Bundesministerium f├╝r Verkehr und Digitale Infrastruktur / Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure). This report, published by a panel of experts in the summer of 2015, specifies 10 aspects to be optimized in large-scale construction projects. In my dissertation some of these aspects are described in detail.

F├Ârderurkunde DGA-Bau

In March 2017, DGA-Bau (Deutsche Gesellschaft f├╝r Au├čergerichtliche Streitbeilegung in der Bau- und Immobilienwirtschaft e. V.) named this dissertation the best scientific work of the year 2017 on methods of "alternative dispute resolution in the construction industry".

After completing my doctorate, I worked for Codema International GmbH as a consultant on a large plant project of K+S AG in Germany.

In February 2017, I was appointed a full professor for "Construction Management" at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden. I was also awarded further appointments for professorships for "Construction Management" at other Universities of Applied Sciences.
