Network rather than patchwork

The clients who come to us as one of Europe’s leading food industry consultants also enjoy another decisive advantage: We are embedded in an integrated design office with over 1,500 architects and engineers.

With the backing of a strong partner – our parent company ATP architects engineers – we at foodfab can offer a specialist integrated process and building design service to the food industry that is unique in Europe. This distinguishes us significantly from our competitors.

Integral design

With over 1,500 employees in its current total of 13 offices, ATP architects engineers is Europe’s leading integrated design office. However, the special feature of ATP is not (only) its size, but also the way in which we design the buildings of tomorrow. Because at ATP we work digitally and across disciplinary borders – as a team of young and experienced process technology consultants, together with experts in the fields of architecture and structural and building services engineering.
How does this help you? If all branches of engineering are working together under one roof, the interfaces between these individual disciplines become highly integrated intersections.
The result is a seamless design produced from a single source, which will make a huge contribution to improving the outcome of your project. We can say this with complete conviction.

Take responsibility

It is especially important to us that production facilities for the food industry are designed and built in a sustainable and environmentally-friendly way. Our planning process takes a lifecycle-oriented approach to the processes and the building, in order to minimize waste and save resources. In doing this, we promote the use of environmentally-friendly materials and focus on renewable energies, because these not only reduce CO2 emissions, but also ensure the long-term efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your entire operation.

Why is this important to us? The objective of the European Green Deal is to ensure that Europe is the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. This is a huge challenge, but also presents the entire food industry with a unique opportunity to improve our built environment. Such changes require commitment, dedication, and solid expertise. We at foodfab and ATP architects and engineers have already anchored all these requirements in our own ATP Green Deal. This is how we – together with all our clients – are accepting our responsibility for the future.
