Building permits and the environment

Naturschutz bei der Hamburg Port Authority

General information

The business unit Building Permits and Environment has a whole range of duties.
But development projects within the Port of Hamburg take centre stage. Alongside consultancy and services that are principally aimed at customers within the HPA, we also play an essential role in ensuring observation of the public law responsibilities of the Hamburg Port Authority relative to our port customers. In this respect we cooperate closely with Hamburg's other authorities.

We are your point of contact in respect of these public law duties:

we are the responsible Civil Engineering Inspection Department for the port's area of activity.
