Holding | 22.08.2019


  • THOST Holding GmbH takes over the majority of shares in SCHOLZE-LAVA
  • The new SCHOLZE-THOST GmbH Planen und Beraten offers an extensive service and consulting portfolio for the planning of technical equipment
  • Competences in all aspects of technical equipment are groundbreaking for the construction of the future

Pforzheim/Stuttgart, 22 August 2019 - Since 26 July 2019, SCHOLZE-THOST GmbH Planen und Beraten (formerly SCHOLZE-LAVA Consulting GmbH) with its consulting and engineering services for technical equipment (TA) has been majority-owned by the THOST Group. With this majority holding, the project management specialist THOST offers additional added value for customers of sophisticated real estate investment projects.

For more than 20 years SCHOLZE has been an innovative partner for the planning and operation of TA and for integrated facility management. With more than 20 employees at its headquarters in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, the company offers a comprehensive portfolio of TA planning for hotels, administration, trade, logistics and industry, including innovative energy systems, simulations and digital planning and information systems (BIM).

Consulting, planning and management of sophisticated investment projects

"With the takeover, we are consistently continuing our growth strategy as a successful group of companies in project management. We are now able to offer our customers even better, convincing expertise in consulting, planning and controlling demanding investment projects - from a single source and across the entire life cycle of real estate," says Florian Thost, managing partner of THOST Holding GmbH.

At SCHOLZE-THOST, the “tried and tested is retained” - not only in the range of services, but also in the management. With Dr. Bernd Essig and Andreas Lindner, experienced specialists continue to represent the company as managing partners. The new managing director Oliver Badde from THOST supports the company's development, the use of synergies and the development of new performance models. In addition to the joint further development of the service portfolio, both companies will continue their existing core services at all locations independently.

Great added value in times of increasing technologization and digitization

THOST acquires all shares from long-time shareholder LAVA ENERGY based in Stuttgart. "After the -divestiture, LAVA, along with its associated companies and partners, will focus fully on the sustainable supply of residential properties and districts using renewable energies," says managing partner Marcus Lehmann.

With its majority shareholding, THOST is creating great added value for existing and potential customers, especially in the face of rising requirements due to increasing technologization and digitization. Today, complex technology forms the neural system of buildings and real estate. "With resource-saving, sustainable systems, comprehensive networking and control on a digital basis, technical equipment is a decisive factor for future-oriented construction and energy-efficient and sustainable operation," says Oliver Thost, managing partner of THOST Holding GmbH.
