We build rooms for people – no detail remains without purpose

The main focus of KFA Bauplanung GmbH is not to base the art of building on its own individual expression, but rather on the practical design that results from the use of the building. With such a functional architecture, the later demands of use can be optimally taken into account – no detail remains without purpose. In addition to the purely construction planning activity, it is becoming more and more important for all projects for cost-reducing reasons that the architectural work is provided completely from the planning to the completion of construction.

Our services include:

  • Planning and management tasks for new buildings and conversions (privat and commercial)
  • General planing
  • Oversizes and area determination
  • Renovations
  • Energy consulting and investigations
  • Expert advice and assessments

Once a project has been completed and handed over, the construction data stored in our computer system can be used to a large extent for the project management of the client in the areas of technical, infra-structural and commercial management.

In order to implement this operating cost-reducing facility management, the architect only has to ensure continuity in the systems. Cost-Conscious and target-oriented action as well as reliability with regard to deadlines are therefore the trading riders of our company

The architectural office was founded in 1968 by Dipl. Ing. Architect Bernd- J. Knüppel and registered in the list of architects of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. In 1999 Dipl.-Ing. Architect Christian Faber was accepted as a partner. From then on, both partners led the architectural office together. In 2005 the office moved from the old location Hofweg 66 to the current location Stormsweg 3 in 22085 Hamburg. The architectural office was then transformed in 2007 from a GbR into a GmbH and renamed into the KFA Bauplanung GmbH.

KFA Bauplanung GmbH, with its two shareholders Bernd-J. Knüppel and Christian Faber, has since been managed by Christian Faber as a Managing Director. On 03.01.2015 the founder of the company, Bernd-J. Knüppel, passed away unexpectedly. His legacy and tradition in business policy is now being continued by Christian Faber and his employees. Currently (2020), this employee structure consists of 8 permanent architects, 4 technical draughtsmen, 3 office assistants and a dual student. Since the beginning of 2014, a consortium with a friendly architectural office in Stuttgart, the „Planungsgruppe Micheal Steinwachs“ (Relenbergerstraße 8, 70174 Stuttgart, Tel: 0711-6155380, www. steinwachs.de) has also been run.

This ARGE Hamburg – Stuttgart general planning company acts jointly in supra-regional projects and thus forms an additional field of application. At present, construction projects for various clients are being carried out nationwide as part of this consortium.
