With the foundation of the office in 1963 Mr Blunck established the emphasis of Civil engineering. Since then Jörss – Blunck – Ordemann offers planning services with emphasis on the planning stages 1 to 7 of the HOAI.

  • Preparation of plans for the state of design statics

Structural and execution planning

The structural planning is one of the core competences in the field of civil engineering. As structural engineer we take over the following tasks:

  • Preparation of structural calculations for the subsections solid, steel, aluminium, glass and timber construction and geotechnics
  • Performance of complex calculations with the help of the FE-method. Therefore we utilize programs like Infograph, RFEM or ANSYS
  • Creation of position and execution plans
  • Creation of formwork drawing and reinforcement plans


Our team uses the accumulated experience and knowledge as structural engineer to operate as examiner for the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and other licensing authorities. We take over the following tasks:
