New psychiatry building at Salzburg University Hospital on track

Several new buildings will be constructed on the Christian Doppler Clinic campus of Salzburg University Hospital in the coming years. Among other things, the aim is to improve psychiatric care. Thomas Lorenz is responsible for the new construction of acute psychological care and geriatric psychiatry. Here is an insight into the current status.

In 2022, the competition project by Habeler & Kirchweger Architekten was chosen as the winning project. The new building will house the psychiatric central outpatient clinic with admission ward, the gerontological psychiatric ward and the psychotherapy ward with day clinic in a modern and functional environment. A lot has happened since then. The old existing psychiatric ward has been completely demolished and the official submission for the new building is currently in progress. The tenders for the shell, envelope and technical building services are being finalized.

On behalf of Habeler & Kirchweger Architekten ZT GmbH, Thomas Lorenz is responsible for coordinating the general planning, preparing the tender and structural planning.

The state of Salzburg is investing a total of around 46.5 million euros in the expansion of psychiatric care at the Christian Doppler Clinic.

Construction of the new psychiatry building is scheduled to begin in September 2024, with completion scheduled for early 2026.

Crowned participation in the 2024 Building Congress in Vienna

We look back with pride on our participation in the Construction Congress 2024 at the Austria Center Vienna, where we were not only able to make a valuable contribution to the discussion about the future of the construction industry, but also received a prestigious award.

Once again, our office was among the 2,200 participants to experience the latest developments and trends in the industry and to exchange ideas with colleagues.

We are particularly proud that our “Med Campus Graz Module II” project received the KOOP Award for cooperative construction management in the field of building construction. This success is also largely due to our colleague Manfred Grangl, who made a significant contribution with his team as the project manager for ÖBA. The award underlines our commitment to first-class construction quality.

Among the many interesting specialist presentations on current topics such as sustainability, building information modeling (BIM) and partnership models in the construction industry, our Philipp Premm also contributed to the discussion on digital innovations in the construction industry as a co-presenter on the topic of “Road infrastructure projects in the digital transformation using the example of the general renovation of the A9 Edlach-Gaishorn”.

Of course, our colleagues took part in the evening “Come Together”. In a relaxed atmosphere, participants were able to reflect on the events of the congress and gain new impetus for future projects.

The Construction Congress 2024 was a complete success and showed that our industry is still strong and developing dynamically despite challenges such as political crises and economic uncertainties. We are proud to be part of these pioneering developments and look forward to further exciting projects and collaborations.

Taster day for the 4th grade at HTL Ortwein with Thomas Lorenz

On 19.04.2024, a "taster day" took place for our sponsored class, the 4CHBTT of the HTL Ort-wein for Construction Technology, Art and Design, at our company headquarters in Graz. The students were given an insight into what they can expect in the day-to-day life of a ZT office.

At various stations, there were interesting facts about building materials and materialities in steel, glass and façade construction, challenges, activities and software used in the field of statics and construction, fields of activity and working methods in the field of building construction and architecture as well as the possibility of a “virtual walk” with VR glasses. The prospective engineers were not only taught theoretical knowledge, but were also given practical insights into the day-to-day work of our various departments.

The event was a complete success! We are already looking forward to welcoming the students again in May – then under the motto “the construction site”.

TPV kindergarten topping-out ceremony

The construction of the new kindergarten in the tpv Villach technology park is progressing rapidly. On 21.03. the topping-out ceremony was held.

Thanks to the timber construction method, the work is done in quick succession. Mayor Günther Abel was also visibly pleased: “The best education for the children is just as important to us as sufficient childcare places for the compatibility of work and family life. That’s why we launched a kindergarten offensive years ago and have recently created 200 new childcare places”.

The new 3-storey building will house a 3-group daycare center, a 1-group daycare center, a company kitchen and a research facility for three to six-year-olds – the so-called “mini educational lab”. In addition to progress in the education sector, the focus is also on sustainability. Heating is provided by geothermal probes, and in addition to mechanical room ventilation, a large-scale PV system is also planned.

Completion and commissioning of the EUR 6 million project are planned for fall 2024.

Preliminary planning, submission and functional tendering of the BIM pilot project were carried out by Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH as GP. The architectural planning was carried out by Bramberger Architects, while WRS Energie- und Baumanagement GmbH is responsible for implementation planning and construction.
