Trial operation phase clinic Oberwart starts!

At the end of August 2023, the Oberwart Clinic was structurally completed, and now the gradual commissioning of the new focus hospital will begin. On 15.9. the project was presented to media representatives.

The construction time for the largest building construction project in Burgenland to date was around 3.5 years. Completion of the outdoor facilities is progressing on schedule, with finalization scheduled for mid-November 2023.

Test operations are currently underway, during which large-scale equipment and the complex building technology of the new 26,500 m² building are being tested and calibrated.

The handover to the operator, Gesundheit Burgenland, is scheduled for February 2024. According to Governor Doskozil, the new hospital will be opened to the public just 1-2 months later. Visitors should be able to form their own impression of the architecturally particularly successful modern clinic. The pursued goal of creating the most pleasant environment possible for patients was visibly achieved.

The relocation from the neighboring old building and the commissioning phase are then scheduled for final completion at the end of May 2024 – around 1 month ahead of the originally planned date.

Together with Moser Architects ZT GmbH, Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH as general ÖBA succeeded in keeping not only the construction time but also the budget despite the adverse circumstances of the last years.

Connecting bridge for Google in Dublin is assembled

In 2018, tech giant Google bought the "Bolands Quay" property in Dublin. Even before the two 14- and 13-story office towers were completed, it was decided to build two connecting bridges. These are located on the 4th and 11th floors. The steel structure of the upper bridge was lifted into place and installed at the end of July.

Thomas Lorenz ‘s team was entrusted by GIG Fassaden GmbH with the structural analysis of the steel structure and the facades of the two connecting bridges and the adjacent building facades in the area where the bridges connect. The architecture was penned by Henry J Lyons, with Arup providing the preliminary structural design.

The centrally placed truss leads to a floating impression. The structural analysis was prepared in close cooperation with the Irish auditor from the Arup office. In addition to the usual verifications, the load-bearing structures also had to be verified for impact sound-induced vibrations. Due to the limited space available on site, the installation concept was a challenge for the company. GIG from Attnang-Puchheim a special challenge. In the end, it was decided to lift the steel structure in individual parts using a 300-ton mobile crane and to assemble the bridge facades later using suspended scaffolding.

A total of almost 110 tons of steel will be used for both bridges. The total weight of both fully extended bridge structures is around 200 tons. Overall completion is scheduled for April 2024.
