The Future of Construction

The Austrian VST BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES AG is a leading provider of innovative technology solutions for building construction. Together with the Swedish Construction Group Skanska VST implemented the Clarion Hotel Sign in Stockholm. This object was designed by the internationally renowned architect Gert Wingårdh from Gothenburg.

The variety of VST performances ranges from project planning and erection to passive house standard. VST produces all supporting elements of a building such as walls and ceilings in its own factory, the largest and most modern of its kind in Europe. The patented VST technology has significant economic and environmental benefits compared to conventional construction methods.

In Sweden, VST has reached a leading market position in the housing sector in Stockholm. Through their Swedish joint venture VST Nordic, which is owned by the VST Group and local investors, VST has so far implemented 35 projects in Sweden. Other projects are under construction. While the VST components are manufactured in Nitra, Slovakia, VST Nordic takes over continuous construction work such as the installation and concreting in Sweden.

The Clarion Hotel Sign in Stockholm was built near the Central Railway Station and is with 558 rooms the largest hotel in Stockholm. It has 11 floors and is composed of four contiguous buildings. The outer shape captivates by its complex forms which reflect the surrounding buildings on the glassed facade. The elaborate supporting structure has been implemented with the Austrian VST composite formwork system in conjunction with steel composite beams and ceilings. This made it possible to realize this project together with the client Skanska in a very short time.
