Neubau Psychiatrie Uniklinik Salzburg

New building psychiatry university hospital Salzburg

The new building on the campus of the Christian Doppler Hospital in Salzburg is intended to improve acute psychiatric care and gerontological psychiatry. Thomas Lorenz's team is involved in this project.

Habeler & Kirchweger Architekten ZT GmbH convinced in the EU-wide general planning competition, their competition work was chosen as the winning project. The goal of a sophisticated design concept, which on the one hand should do justice to the planned units and on the other hand take into account the existing pavilion system in its surroundings, was implemented in the best possible way.

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.

Thomas Lorenz was commissioned by Habeler & Kirchweger to handle general planning coordination, tender preparation and structural design. The construction costs amount to around 13 million euros, with completion scheduled for early 2026.

We are looking forward to an exciting new project!

Lecture series at TU-Graz – the MedCampus introduces itself

The Thursday lecture series at the TU-Graz is a popular event - also for the employees of Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH. There was a big rush especially on 24.11.2022, where our head of department Construction Management | ÖBA Mr. DI (FH) Manfred Grangl together with project manager DI Philipp Jereb from the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft.m.b.H gave a lecture about the many facets of the 500 Mio.

Euro building construction project in the Stiftingtal – the MedCampus Graz. The overall project is composed of the subprojects Module I & Module II East & West, the ZWT II and the IKM. For all of them, our office provided the services of the local construction supervision and the test statics.

Here are a few facts: Around 80,000 m3 of concrete were used in total, over 11,000 architectural plans were drawn, approx. Held 1,000 construction meetings and sent more than 90,000 emails.

Not only the professional approach of our ÖBA team but also the cooperative project management among the project participants made this large-scale project with a remarkable 120 executing trades a success!

We congratulate Manfred on this successful presentation!

An insight into AT&S’s construction projects

On 19.10.2022 the team of Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH and our partner office Bramberger Architects had the opportunity to visit the AT&S New Working World and the AT&S R&D Center in Leoben-Hinterberg. Both construction projects represent milestones in the expansion of Styria as a business location.

The growing need for production space and offices led to the development of the New Working World, a 4-story office building for approx. 300 employees with a gross floor area of approx. 9.000m2. The team around Thomas Lorenz is responsible for the complete general planning incl. He was responsible for the local construction supervision and was pleased to have the opportunity to inspect the project so shortly before it was handed over to the client – AT&S.

While the NWW was still under construction, AT&S CEO Andreas Gerstenmayer announced the start of construction of a new research and development center, the R&D Center. In addition to an office wing, a prototype line and small series production are being built on an area of around 44,000 m². AT&S is investing around €500 million in this project by 2025 and creating up to 800 jobs for the region.

The high degree of prefabrication with approx. 3,500 pcs. solid and semi-prefabricated parts drove the erection of the shell intensively and the TLo team was able to get an idea of the impressive dimensions of the now almost completed shell during the tour. Due to high vibration requirements, a two-dimensional soil improvement in the form of DSV columns was carried out. The FT columns of the 3 to 6-story skeleton building have dimensions of 0.80 x 0.80 m to 1.00 x 1.00 m, and the ceilings are in the form of 1.0 m high FT ribbed or FT waffle ceiling elements. Reinforcing bar diameters below 20 mm are rarely found on this construction site.

Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH is responsible for the structural design in the submission and execution phase of this project and is working on the construction project together with the team of Architects Collective which is entrusted with the submission and foreman planning.

For the teams of Thomas Lorenz and Alfred Bramberger, the exciting and insightful tour of the construction site was followed by a visit to the pub “Zum Lustigen Schmied”, where the excursion ended in a relaxed atmosphere.

Ceramics in gold

At the TU Graz 2 buildings are in the home stretch, Thomas Lorenz was live at the facade. At the Innfeldgasse campus, two new building complexes with a total investment volume of approx. 55 million was realized by the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft. These are "Data House" and "SAL Building", 2 new research centers in the field of Data driven Business and Artificial Intelligence.

Both buildings are designed according to the same principle and convey a campus-like character with their arrangement of squares, green spaces and avenues. The building envelope consists of passive house components and, together with the high storage mass of the concrete structure, is designed to reduce heating or cooling requirements.

On about 10,000m2 of facade area are housed different types of facades. In the foreground is the curtain wall ceramic facade with its tubular elements, also known as a “baguette” in technical jargon. Other elements are window band facades, mullion-transom as well as aluminum cobond facades.

Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH was commissioned by Metallica Stahl- und Fassadentechnik GmbH with the facade statics for this project.

Anatomy of Med Uni Graz successfully handed over!

Another milestone of Med Uni Graz in connection with the Med Campus was reached. The former pathology department at Auenbruggerplatz 25 was renovated and expanded for the Department of Macroscopic and Clinical Anatomy. Now it has been handed over.

The existing building, which dates back to 1912 and is a listed building, was renovated, extended to include a lecture hall for 500 students in the inner courtyard and a 5-story annex. There is room for about 70 tables in 2 dissecting rooms. In addition, a new two-story entrance area with a spacious foyer was created.

The new building houses an additional lecture hall as well as a library, medical laboratories and a pathology incl. corresponding bearing and cooling surfaces.

On September 30, 2022, the addition and conversion of the new anatomy was successfully handed over to the client – the Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft – and the user – the Medical University. Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH was responsible for the ÖBA-Bau incl. the coordination of all specialist ÖBA’s and responsible for the test statics. Once again, a precision landing was achieved with all participants! BIG invested a total of around EUR 32 million in the 8,200 m² construction project.

Congratulations to our ÖBA team for their tireless efforts on this unique project!

Site trip, hiking day and office party!

Last week the sunny Friday was used extensively by the TLo team. A construction site excursion to Trieben, a hike and an office party were on the daily schedule!

Our ÖBAler Philipp Premm and Martin Lichtenegger informed in a great lecture about the currently used ongoing general rehabilitation of the approximately 10 km long section Edlach – Trieben- Gaishorn on the A9 Pyhrn freeway. Over a period of 3 years, 9 bridge support structures, the open land areas, the Trieben junction itself and the existing water protection facilities will be renewed on both directional carriageways. The project is a pilot project of ASFINAG and will be handled fully digitally. What many did not know: the section of the route runs through the Trieben Moor. Many supporting structures run only just above the ground, and conventional construction methods were not possible due to the soft subsoil.

This was followed by an exciting round of construction. Among other things, it was possible to view a 60-ton, 30-meter-long prestressed reinforced concrete girder that had to be produced on site at the construction site. This girder was transported to the site on a low-loader in the course of a night closure on Saturday night, even before the originally planned lifting date, and then lifted into place with two cranes.

While the ÖBA staff continued to work diligently, the rest of the TLo team went on a hiking tour from Kaiserau to the Oberst Klinke Hütte, where the day was enjoyed with feast, drink and beautiful weather. While many were enjoying the end of the day, Thomas Lorenz, Roland Reichl, Manfred Grangl and Martin Pramhas had another event in their schedule.

Peter Mandl ZT GmbH, our “neighbor” in the House of Engineers celebrated its 20th anniversary. A successful celebration and a wonderful reason to celebrate! Congratulations to Peter Mandl and his team on this beautiful milestone!
