Inside Drees & Sommer’s Stuttgart innovation centre

PlaceTech visited Drees & Sommer’s innovation centre in Stuttgart, which opened in January and hosts external startups, to find out about the tech in the building, the startups the company is working with, and why it’s important for the firm to innovate.

Drees & Sommer is a European consulting, planning and project management enterprise, with over 3,200 employees in 40 locations around the world. The company describes its approach to services as ‘the blue way’. This takes into consideration both economic and ecological concerns, to reduce investment and operating costs while enhancing functionality and process quality.
