Waste water disposal and purification


Water is a valuable raw material. So is waste water.

For the prevention of diseases and the resurgence of diseases that have already been overcome, the safe disposal and reprocessing of water must go hand in hand with the supply of clean drinking water. This represents a huge challenge because the global population is continually growing at the same time, thereby generating an increasing amount of waste water. If we want to keep pace with this growth, we need the best technical solutions for the treatment of waste water. For more than 55 years, gauff.com has successfully employed intelligent, environmentally friendly, and economically viable solutions for the disposal and purification of waste water. We make sure that waste water is recycled into drinking water.

  • Relay
  • Transport
  • Purification
  • Reclamation
  • Rehabilitation
  • Sewerage network rehabilitation
  • Hydraulic modelling
  • Planning and GIS
  • Sewer cleaning and inspection
  • Support

Climate and environmental protection affects everyone.

Climate and environmental protection has become one of the most pressing issues of our time and has permeated all aspects of our life and work for a long time. Very exacting requirements must be met: on a global, regional, and local level. These include the fight against increasing desertification as well as the protection of water resources and the reduction of air pollutants and ozone-depleting substances.

Our comprehensive experience and interdisciplinary expertise in all areas of environmental protection, such as energy efficiency and renewable energy, water conservation and renaturation, rain water treatment and waste water separation, soil purification, refuse recycling, and building material recycling, secure a high degree of quality in the planning that we provide to our customers and thus successful solutions for their requirements.

Roads connect people

Roads are lifelines, forge networks, and support cultural and economic development. Without roads, the development and strengthening of a location – along with the improvement of the quality of life in towns, regions, and countries – would be inconceivable. Roads thus form a fundamental aspect of our life, from an economic, social, and personal perspective.

Furthermore, constantly growing traffic flows and the associated traffic jams, delays, and even ecological damage continue to present us with new challenges.

The professionals at gauff.com have the knowledge and expertise to solve these issues in a forward-looking manner with comprehensive planning and consulting.

Our range of services includes:

  • Moving and stationary traffic
  • Motorways
  • Trunk and urban roads

  • Road safety/traffic protection
  • Planning/dimensioning of parking facilities
  • Telematics/convoy parking
  • Truck/car parking
  • Traffic management during construction phase
  • Bus terminals (main bus stations)
  • Local public transport (local public transport plan, regional bus services, shared taxi services, section 45a of the German National Passenger Transport Act, PBefG)
  • Airfields and airports
  • Bridge construction

Mobility consulting


Mobility – driving the quality of life

The current transformation of social and economic conditions, characterised by globalisation, fundamental demographic changes, and developments in the energy and commodity markets, is having a profound impact on urban, regional, and national transport policies. A skilled team of traffic planners, transport economists, geographers, sociologists, economists, and political scientists creates solutions to align the economic efficiency, quality, and financial viability of transport systems with the demands of economic, demographic, social, and ecological challenges. Our team’s consulting services include solutions that address increasingly complex transport issues, greater passenger and goods traffic mobility requirements, and the development of competition in transport markets, as well as the growing responsibility of public transport service stakeholders. Business opportunities and risks for transport companies, financing solutions for complex transport systems, as well as increasing requirements for environmental sustainability are important benchmarks for consulting within these interlinked and multifaceted fields.
