Organization

Our History

Gibs geologen + ingenieure was established as a BGB company in Nürnberg in 1992 by Wolf Blumenthal and Dr. Heinrich Schoger as equal partners and has been operating as a GmbH & Co. KG company since 2014.

From the beginning, environmental engineering projects (planning and remediation of landfills, surveys, remediation, and monitoring of contaminated sites, surveys pertaining to erosion control and natural resources management) have been the focus of the work.

Over time, Gibs geologen + ingenieure has performed increasingly complex and comprehensive projects for the U.S. Army as well as for a large number of public and private organizations.

Today, the company can look back on numerous successfully completed projects. Expertise, dependability, and the experience gained from over 1,200 projects are the foundation of Gibs’ success. Services adjusted to meet changing needs and requirements resulted in the development of new business sectors, e.g. natural resources management and environmental informatics, GIS, and renewable energy sources to name but a few.

With a staff of approximately 30 highly qualified employees, Gibs geologen + ingenieure has become one of the largest planning and consulting offices for environmental engineering projects in Northern Bavaria.

Our Team

Currently, our team consists of more than 30 highly motivated natural scientists and engineers. We are thus capable of successfully accomplishing a wide range of complex tasks involving various disciplines. Our team is also characterized by extensive language proficiency, being able to provide services in a variety of languages.

Organization

To ensure that the projects entrusted to us are completed in a timely manner and fulfill our clients’ requirements and expectations, our firm follows specified procedures designed to guarantee well-organized and efficient management throughout the project.

The quality of our services can be measured in the large number of successfully completed projects and the long-standing collaboration with our clients. By adhering to our quality management system (QMS), certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008, we are able to ensure the implementation of consistent and, whenever appropriate, improved standards to meet the needs of our clients.

In addition, our firm is a certified investigation body according to Article 18 of the BBodSchG and our team comprises expert consultants (Bavarian Water Management Authority, Bayer. LfWU) accredited according to Article 18 of the BBodSchG for the subject fields 1, 2, 5, and 6.

Project Management

The central guidance mechanism for achieving our product and service goals is an integral component of our internal database. The database system provides tools for the monitoring and evaluation of a project’s progress. This information provides the basis for decisions that lead to deadlines being met on-time or adjusted if required.

The project manager prepares a project plan for the project assigned to him/her based on the scope of services or contract. Important stages of the project, as described in the contract, are documented as milestones. The project-specific plan constitutes the basis for the proper realization of the assignment, ensuring adherence to quality standards, schedule, and specified budget.

The project plan serves as a reference and standard for the continuous internal monitoring and regulation of the work in progress and is repeatedly updated during the course of the project. During the processing of a project, the project manager determines whether the requirements specified in the project plan are being met accordingly. This ensures that possible errors and/or shortfalls can be corrected in a timely manner.

At important milestones, as specified in the project plan, the project manager, in collaboration with the Quality Management Representative, performs a target / performance comparison in regard to specified schedules and costs.

Quality Management

We at Gibs geologen + ingenieure have committed ourselves to providing high-quality services and have designated client satisfaction as our top priority.

To us, quality assurance is a leadership skill. Our quality policy is defined by specific guidelines and provisions and is meant to be embraced by all of our staff as an inherent part of their daily work. The management’s exemplary function ensures that personnel identify themselves with the firm’s quality policy.

The high quality of our services is guaranteed by adherence to a systematic quality plan as specified in our quality management system (QMS), which has been certified according to the DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 standard.

Our professional performance is appraised by TÜV Süd in an annually recurring external auditing and recertification process. The most recent audit was performed in November 2020.
