The global engineering and design consultancy Ramboll has relocated its Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl office in Beijing to new location in the district of Tongzhou.

After a period of stable organic growth, the Beijing office of Copenhagen-headquartered global engineering and design consultancy Ramboll’s Studio Dreiseitl enterprise has set up shop in a new and contemporary office in the urban district of Tongzhou, with the Danish Ambassador to China on hand to help cut the ribbon.

With the tagline ‘catalyst for liveable public spaces that integrates natural systems’, Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl is an urban design and architecture practice focused on sustainable cities with a specialisation in hydrology and water management infrastructure for blue-green spaces.

Formed out of Ramboll’s acquisition of Atelier Dreiseitl in 2013, the consulting firm currently has offices in its home base of Germany (Hamburg, and Überlingen in the country’s far south) along with Singapore and China – the latter of which has relocated to a fresh new base.

Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl in Beijing relocates to district of Tongzhou“Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl Beijing have done a tremendous job creating a solid and profitable business in a competitive environment. I congratulate them with the new facilities, where they’ll be even closer to our clients,” said Hanne Christensen, Managing Director, Ramboll Water.

Located around 20 kilometers from the centre of Beijing, the city’s Tongzhou district is quickly developing into a new hub for both residential buildings and businesses, including being slated by the government as the capital’s primary future subcentre to help ease congestion and pollution. The subcentre has been described as a ‘water city with an emphasis on the environment’.

The Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl move has been on the cards for some time, with its local headcount swelling to 27 employees (of 80-plus globally), and the requirement of a more modern space to accommodate the firm’s growing success in China – including a previous project on the Tianjin Cultural Park southeast of Beijing.
