Training and leisure in one

What could be on the agenda for a successful office trip? Fun, definitely. But why not also educate ourselves? For example, by combining our trip with a visit to a general contractor, where we can take a look at the holistic processes and take away one or two things for ourselves.

Visit of the general contractor

On September 09, 2022, we went to the beautiful Münsterland region, to the general contractor Tenbrink in Stadtlohn to be precise. The management with Mr. Wessels, Mrs. Tenbrink and Mr. Peters welcomed us there and introduced us to the company and its processes. We listened carefully and got some inspiration.

Because like us, Tenbrink sees itself as a generalist to master complex construction projects at the highest level. It was therefore particularly exciting for us to see how other companies are also optimizing their processes in order to be able to comply with fixed schedules and budgets by running smoothly.

Quality work in their own carpentry

In their own carpentry shop, they explained the internal processes and working methods to us. Particularly exciting: Agile work is already being done in production and the transition of the rest of the company to agile working methods is to take place gradually. This not only ensures great flexibility, but also that furniture pieces for contract partners can be produced in just five 5 days.

Architecture tour in Münster

But our excursion was not to end in Stadtlohn. So we went on to the university city of Münster for dinner and an overnight stay. Münster has a lot more to offer in terms of architecture besides its old town. An architectural tour on 10.09. therefore rounded off our weekend.

All in all, it was a successful trip, during which we learned a lot and also enjoyed our time.
