igk Krabbe competed against 40 other corporate gardens to win the award for the most beautiful corporate garden in 2014 in Lower Saxony and Bremen.
Osnabrück in first place.
Papenburg. The winners of the corporate garden competition in Lower Saxony and Bremen were selected at the Landesgartenschau, a horticultural exhibition in Papenburg, on Monday. Ingenieurgemeinschaft igk Krabbe from Osnabrück placed first.
Around 30 years ago there was just a single run-down hay barn on the company’s 10,700 m² property. The founder and namesake of the company, Werner Krabbe, who was trained as a carpenter, carefully restored the historical building. Over the years, more and more half-timbered houses from the surrounding Artland were added and became offices for our architects and engineers.
Our headquarters are a green oasis in perfect harmony with the surroundings of Osnabrück-Atter. The local residents see this very special place as an asset to the region. Many residents show the grounds to their guests. Others use the garden for wedding photographs.
By allocating our employees to buildings according to their fields of expertise, the connecting paths, adjacent niches and sitting areas then become places where people can come together and share ideas. In addition to computer networks, these footpaths through the gardens constitute the internal linking system of the company.
»Our headquarters in Osnabrück surprises everyone with its idyllic park lands and carefully restored half-timbered houses that are equipped with the latest technology and supported by highly sophisticated software that we have developed ourselves. This is the ideal environment for creative development, careful attention to detail and complex problem solving for seemingly insurmountable challenges.«
