Lösungen für Städte und Kommunen
  • Local public transport is obliged to create accessibility throughout Germany by 2022

WSM experts in conversation

Christian Mortsiefer, Sales Manager for Canopy and Bicycle Parking Systems

Mr. Mortsiefer, bus stops everywhere are being extensively rebuilt or reconstructed. What's behind it?

Public transport is obliged to create barrier-free access throughout Germany by 2022, thus implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This will require considerable construction work in some cases. Outdated roofing is also replaced or modernized at the same time.

Why should decision makers choose WSM for this?

We have about 60 years of experience in the construction of street furniture, especially bus shelters for public transport. In addition, we are familiar with the requirements and latest standards for stopping points and can therefore provide our partners with comprehensive support and security. In this way, we ensure that projects succeed and save clients from unplanned and unnecessary follow-up investments.

What other advantages are there?

Our modular systems come from a single source. This means that all components of a street furniture harmonize with each other. They can be flexibly adapted and expanded at any time. But the main advantage is certainly the outstanding quality of our products and the longevity that results from it.

Lösungen für Landschaftsarchitekten

For landscape architects

Inspirations and design freedom

The special honor at the Red Dot Design Awards 2017 for the elegant design of a roofing system is representative of the timeless design language of all WSM products. This is because they offer landscape architects excellent opportunities to implement their project according to their individual ideas. To this end, WSM works closely with landscape design experts from the idea generation and planning stages. In this way, solutions are created that integrate perfectly into the respective environment or consciously stand out from it.

  • WSM offers efficiently customizable modular solutions or also economical custom-made products
  • Development of transparent and elegant solutions through consistent focus on form and function
  • WSM takes over the entire planning work and thus ensures processing from a single source right through to installation

WSM experts in conversation

Heinrich Wink, Technical Manager for Mobile Space Systems, Canopy and Bicycle Parking Systems

Mr. Wink, why is individuality so important for landscape architects?

Each project is different: the natural features of the landscape, the environment, the goals and much more. For landscape architects, off-the-shelf solutions don't fit the bill. We therefore offer, on the one hand, effi ciently customizable modular solutions or, on the other hand, special designs that can be manufactured economically thanks to our modern organization and production.

How do you win an "honorable mention" at the Red Dot Design Award for a roofing system?

By consistently focusing on form and function while developing elegant, transparent solutions. For landscape architects, this type of design is particularly appealing. This is because glass and the color of the structural components are the defining elements for them and offer maximum design freedom.

How do you specifically relieve landscape architects of their work?

We can take over the entire planning work for our systems and thus ensure processing from a single source. For landscape architects, this means significantly fewer administrative tasks, security in complying with laws and standards on wind and snow loads or anchoring in the ground. We also take care of the assembly.

Are you a landscape architect?

For general construction companies

Planning security and international support

For general construction contractors, WSM is exactly the right partner thanks to its size, resources and internationality.

WSM covers the entire spectrum: serial production through metal system construction for major international projects, but also intelligent support through tender databases or 3D visualizations as planning aids. Added to this are punctual delivery with the help of our own logistics and professional assembly by our own fitters.

Lösungen für Generalbau-Unternehmen
  • WSM ensures planning reliability for clients through comprehensive know-how
  • Modern supply chain management combined with a strong staff of qualified specialists
  • Scheduled, efficient and optimal processes

WSM experts in conversation

Sonja Weßler, Operations Manager

Ms. Weßler, why is planning security so important today?

Laws, regulations and standards are constantly updated. For the individual customer, this is hardly manageable. We, on the other hand, are represented in numerous bodies such as DIN committees that affect metal system construction. All of this is incorporated into the design and construction of our products at a very early stage. In this way, we use our know-how to ensure planning security for our clients.

Why does your size matter in addition to quality?

For example, if a general construction company is planning a roll-out with new shelters for shopping carts for thousands of stores, it needs a strong partner who has this capacity. We can do all that.

How do you manage that?

Through modern supply chain management combined with a strong staff of qualified professionals. This is because numerous processes cannot be automated, but require specialist expertise in metal system construction. With us, every move is perfect and we receive the right support at every point thanks to digitization in the company, so that everything runs according to plan, efficiently and optimally.

Are you a general construction company?

We will be happy to assist you with your planning.

Lösungen für Galabau-Betriebe

For landscaping companies

Tender support and cooperation

Today, a landscaper must be a true multi-tasker to meet all the demands between the bureaucracy and the job site.

WSM provides noticeable relief and sustainable success. This starts with support in tenders and extends to partnership-based cooperation in project implementation. In addition, common values such as quality and environmental protection connect gardeners and landscapers with WSM.

  • WSM provides concrete support through experience and modern software to win tenders
  • Projects can be realized faster and also more securely with products from WSM
  • WSM implements projects for outdoor facilities of large retail chains with GaLaBau companies on site

WSM experts in conversation

Nadja Hansmann, Sales Manager Information Systems

Ms. Hansmann, how do you relieve the burden on gardeners and landscapers?

With our experience and modern software, we provide concrete help in winning tenders, are involved in planning and offer not only well thought-out system solutions, but also clear documentation and assembly instructions. This is often neglected by the competition, but saves GaLaBau companies numerous time-consuming queries. Therefore, projects can be realized faster and also more securely with our products.

GaLaBau companies can be both customer and contractor with you. How does it work?

We implement projects for outdoor facilities of large retail chains with GaLaBau companies on site - when we build information systems or shopping cart canopies, bicycle parking systems and charging stations, for example. For this purpose, we commission local GaLaBau companies, because proximity and local knowledge are important. We then work together hand in hand. This creates trust beyond the order, so that we later also receive orders directly from the landscaping companies: a win-win situation, in other words.

Are you a GaLaBau company?

We will be happy to assist you with your planning.

Autumn dreams with WSM

By Redaktion | 30. July 2018

As romantic as autumn is: the autumn weather often demands a lot from man and material. A roof that still offered protection from the sun and heat storms in the summer must now keep stormy, often wet and cold winds or days of rain away from people and materials. Everything built outside must withstand wind, […]
