Providing the missing link: As pioneers of building information modeling, we close the process chain that links a construction idea to its fabrication.


For years we have enabled projects of high complexity to take flight and have supported clients, architects, planners and fabricators in reaching new heights of efficiency, safety and quality.


Design-to-Production – we master complexity

Digital Planning

Whether for a competition, a design or a realisation: Design-to-Production supports you with parametric planning, bringing your aspirations of form, function, and construction into harmony.

We create detailed 3D models in fabrication quality, enabling the spatial coordination of different trades, and we generate a reliable basis for the tendering and execution of complex architecture.

Digital Fabrication

With the help of parametric CAD modelling, Design-to-Production initiates a safe and efficient route for you, from concept to machine - from design to production.

We provide 3D construction documentation and process the data required for CNC controlled fabrication, and we ensure that, in the end, all the components fit together perfectly.

Consultancy

More than a decade of practical experience in prefabricated timber construction and digital planning enable Design-to-Production to offer high quality consulting in all project phases.

Our services reach from project development (feasibility studies, detail and construction concepts, tender preparation etc.) to automatisation and digitalisation of planning and fabrication processes to the development of systematised and standardised products.

You can profit from our knowledge and experience, too! We will happily support you to create and execute your project within budget and time frame and in outstanding quality.

History

Design-to-Production was founded in 2007 by Fabian Scheurer and Arnold Walz. Together, the IT specialist and the architect soon realised that each of them was active, one at the beginning and one at the end, in the same digital process chain, but that, between these extremes, many links were missing. So they became the first to offer Production-oriented data modelling as an independent service. In 2009 Hanno Stehling joined the team, and then, two years later, Johannes Kuhnen.

The firm, based in a former textile factory in Erlenbach near Zürich as well as in Stuttgart, has enabled over 35 ground-breaking projects to date – cooperating with such renowned architects and architectural offices as SANAA, UN Studio, Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, and Renzo Piano.

Team

A pioneering spirit seems to blow through our lakeside offices. Because, here at Design-to-Production, an interdisciplinary team of highly specialised technical consultants apply just the right amount of curiosity and passion to build quality, efficiency and safety into our digital planning processes.

Fabian Scheurer studied informatics with subsidiary studies in architecture, and began his professional career as an assistant in the CAAD department at the Technical University in Munich. Appointments followed as a software engineer in Munich, as well as a consultant for new media in Zurich. He was a research assistant at the CAAD Chair at the ETH Zurich, where the idea to set up his own company evolved. Fabian Scheurer has been a managing partner at Design-to-Production since 2007, alongside which he has taught as a guest lecturer at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA, London), the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya (IAAC, Barcelona), and at the HTW Chur, amongst others.

Arnold Walz studied architecture and urban planning at the University of Stuttgart, specialising in lightweight construction and planning theory.  Even while still studying, he worked on projects with tricky geometries such as the Olympic Stadium in Montreal or the reconstruction of Gaudi's suspended model for the Colònia Güell Church. He developed scripts to generate and optimise complex building geometries, applying own his approach, namely that these complex geometries should not be drawn but rather be "written", to his work on ambitious designs by notable architects such as Norman Foster or Herzog & de Meuron. Arnold Walz runs Design-to-Production’s Stuttgart office.
