Based on a law passed specifically for this purpose, the Austrian parliament decided on a comprehensive renovation of the 130-year-old building.
The refurbishment should allow improvements in operation, processes and functions, repair existing damage and bring security, fire safety, hygiene and comfort up to today’s standards.
Jabornegg & Palffy architects from Vienna, together with the engineering company AXIS, won the contract for the restoration with a construction sum of more than 300 million Euros. KBP was able to bring extensive experience to the table and make a contribution to the successful bid.
In the area of higher-level technical infrastructure, renewable energy will be used to supply the building with cold air. A medium-voltage feed from a second substation will also be available to provide uninterrupted service, and in the building itself, there will be a full back-up for the power supply.
