The GEZE BIM objects contain information that can be evaluated to provide you with easy-to-plan maintenance processes with transparent costs.
The right documents for your tender
GEZE can assist you with creating project and product-specific invitations for tenders, drawings and cable plans. The associated boilerplate texts and tools are available for download on our website and in the GEZE catalogue.
You can also rely on our GEZE Project Consultants. They provide you with free support for developing all the required technical solutions, interdisciplinary planning and the creation of doors lists.
GEZE receives honours from architects
Architects are regularly surveyed to find out which building product manufacturers they prefer to work with as well as who delivers the best products and solutions.
Architects love GEZE
Double award: At the 2017 Architects’ Darling Award, GEZE took gold in the ‘Automatic Doors' category. The company also won the bronze award in the 'Safety & Access Control category'.
The Golden Phoenix honours the most sought-after solutions in the building industry. Around 2,000 architects and planners took part in the large-scale survey to evaluate who offered the best products and solutions.

Training courses and dates for architect events
Our training courses cover the most common questions that architects and designers have concerning door automation, technology and safety. We are also happy to address individual questions about current projects. We work together with you to develop solutions for the complex and often contradictory requirements for doors in diverse installation situations. As a system manufacturer, we understand the interdependencies between the respective requirements and we can apply our knowledge to help you make the optimal choice for the components you need. Our seminars and professional training measures are a recognised element within the framework of advanced training for architects. You can benefit from our experience and take advantage of this event to swap ideas with other coworkers.
Building data are digitally recorded, processed and networked digitally using BIM (Building Information Modelling). This means that buildings can be designed, modelled, optimised and simulated, from the planning phase and implementation through to commissioning and possible removal. And all that in just one 3D model which all the participants work on jointly.
Diverse information, such as maintenance cycles or instructions for recycling specific elements, can be linked together for every component and element. With this approach, precise predictions about a building's construction and life cycle costs can be made at the planning stage.

Doors with complex or even contradictory requirements pose great challenges for everyone involved in a project. If the compatibility of all components is not completely harmonised, this can lead to complications and unnecessary costly additions down the road. This seminar covers the interdependencies between various technical components and works together with the participants to find solutions.
Register now for the next door planning seminar:
These training courses include stand-alone topic modules that provide basic information tailored to the needs of the planners. We cover the most common questions posed by architects about securing escape and rescue routes, door automation, hold-open systems, smoke removal from buildings, building automation and networking. We are also happy to address individual questions.
We work together to develop solutions for the complex and often contradictory requirements for doors in diverse installation situations. You can benefit from our experience and take advantage of this event to swap ideas with other experts. The essence of Wissen KOMPAKT is that the experience we have acquired through countless events over the past years has demonstrated that discussing current issue areas adds value to the topics covered in the presentations.
You can acquire valuable planning know-how for complex buildings, and technology, through three information modules: From natural smoke and heat extraction systems to accessibility features for doors in line with DIN 18040-1 and ASR V3A.2 requirements as well as the securing of doors in escape and rescue routes.
Register now for the next Wissen KOMPAKT event:
In close cooperation with various partner companies, we offer training events for architects and interior designers. Specialist lectures and a professional exchange with experts highlight many topics, such as complex requirements for technology, function, accessibility and design. The events are recognized with continuing education credits at the Architects and City Planners Chamber of Hesse (AKH) and the Chamber of Architects Baden-Württemberg (AKBW).
The demands that are made of every single door make the process of compiling door lists highly complex. They form the basis for all tenders and must be updated throughout the entire construction period. If any changes are made, the entire door technology system has to be reviewed for functionality and compatibility. This avoids the need for additions and extra costs that often result from a lack of basic information or changes, the effects of which are not taken into consideration enough, if at all.
The certification course ‘Specialist Planner in Safety Technology for Doors’ enables architects and planners to create comprehensive requirement profiles for all of the demands placed on doors and to select the optimal technical components. The specialised door list management from GEZE greatly reduces the time required for compiling and updating door lists.

Useful planning tools for your project
Along with personal consultations, our GEZE planning tools can also support you directly at the workplace. GEZE planning tools help you design your projects more efficiently. For example, doors and windows can be planned online. Thanks to our app, you can have the variety of GEZE products with you, even when you are on the go.
GEZE door list management
Door lists generally serve as a basis for drafting the text for a tender as they allow for all door requirements to be gathered together as comprehensively as possible. Clear menu navigation, comment fields and comfort functions greatly assist users when filling out the GEZE door lists. At the same time, the many explanations offer you help with decision making. GEZE provides users with an easy-to-use solution. Login to the GEZE client portal

Assistance with expert planning
Planning assistance for door systems

Depending on the installation context, doors have to satisfy multiple guidelines for fire safety, burglary, thermal insulation, sound proofing and accessibility. The resulting requirements often prove to be highly complex. In larger construction projects, doors are recorded in doors lists that contain specifications for each door.
The participation of diverse building trades in the planning and construction process or the lack of an overall review of the door technology can hamper the implementation of highly complex door systems. GEZE provides consultation with door planning and assists you with selecting components.
Guidelines and requirements for accessibility planning
© Martin Jakob für GEZE GmbH
Self-determination is particularly important for people with disabilities and for the elderly. They want to experience their surroundings independently and without restrictions. Fortunately, society has started to pay much more attention to the topic of ‘accessibility’. While originally associated with bodily limitations, old age and illness, the focus these day is much more on the true benefits of accessibility, namely independence, comfort and safety. Barrier-free building has already been incorporated in numerous standards and regulations.
As with overall construction legislation in Germany, the legal basis for barrier-free building is essentially left to the individual federal states. This makes planning highly complex. GEZE is familiar with the associated norms and guidelines and is happy to assist you in the planning phase.
