The company headquarters in Planegg / Munich

The Müller-BBM GmbH is an internationally active since 1962, engineering firm based in Planegg near Munich. The company is represented with over 400 employees at thirteen locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The expertise covers the following areas: construction ( building acoustics , room acoustics , sound engineering and media technology , building physics , building climatology , sustainability , structural dynamics and fire protection ), environmental ( air pollution , noise control , Electromagnetic environmental compatibility , safety technology , Legally compliant business organization and management systems , lighting technology , environmental impact assessments (UVU) FFH compatibility tests , species protection , aquatic ecology ) and technology ( vehicle acoustics , machine and system acoustics , psychoacoustics as well as mobile communication and product testing in construction and in the areas of entertainment electronics (audio, video / television technology, loudspeakers), digital image processing and IT electronics (telecommunications , Information electronics and computer technology)).


As early as 1946, Lothar Cremer received approval to operate a business as a consulting engineer for sound technology in Munich. When he became full professor and director of the Institute for Technical Acoustics at the Technical University in Berlin in 1954, his student Helmut A. Müller took over the Cremer Acoustics Laboratory . From 1958 he continued to run the office under his own name and expanded the range of activities to include industrial noise abatement, noise protection in urban development and noise protection in shipbuilding.

In 1962 Müller-BBN GmbH was founded with five shareholders, including Lothar Cremer, Manfred Heckl , Ludwig Schreiber and Helmut A. Müller. The company Bolt Beranek and Newman ( BBN ), represented by Leo Beranek , became a partner. In 1972 BBN sold its shares to Leo Beranek and to Müller-BBN employees at the time . The company name was changed to Müller-BBM .

Standard works of acoustics such as the “Taschenbuch der Technischen Akustik ”, “ Structure - borne sound ” (both Springer-Verlag ) and DIN 18005 “Soundproofing in urban development” were and are largely developed and updated by employees of the company.
