In community building construction the CSA department has demonstrated its ability with projects that were partially very challenging, such as conversion and expansion of a parish church, conversion and renovation of a heritage-protected hospital building or the museum of modern art.

Loft conversion of a Gründerzeit house


General planning for a 3-storey loft conversion at the headquarters of the Pörner Group was a static challenge for the building, which dates back to the 19th century. The three additional floors (about 750 m³) were placed as a steel construction on new load distribution bars made of reinforced concrete. The wall structure was carried out in glass, timber and drywall constructions. In the courtyard, a lift was installed and in its shafts the entire HVAC-system was reinstalled.

References of infrastructural facilities

Infrastructural facilities are also part of the CSA portfolio. Projects for the construction and renovation of petrol stations as well as engineering and construction of transmitter stations were undertaken to the customers’ satisfaction.

Gas stations

Since 1992 gas stations are being designed and built for Shell Austria GmbH by an own team, including erection of new, as well as revamp of existing ones.

The scope of work includes design and authority engineering as well as construction, tendering, bid evaluations, detail engineering, site supervision and commissioning.

Over the last years a systematic archiving of all Shell- gas stations has been taking place. The team is naturally familiarized with the characteristics of gas station construction, wherefore Shell hires the team for several maintenance tasks as well.

As reference for these construction-projects, several border stations will do, such as the one in Nickelsdorf and Suben, as well as Föhrenberg. 

Transmitters and their base station

An own project team planned and realized over 450 transmission stations for “Connect Austria” (ONE) in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland. These stations were not only installed in the open, so called Greenfield Sites, but as Roof Top Sites as well on constructions such as wind power stations, observation points or church towers, strategically situated to be out of sight. During the entire project the team took into account the preservation orders and governmental disposals. A detailed documentation consisting of detailed visualizations and photomontages guaranteed that the authority could evaluate the object objectively.
