In the footsteps of wooden architecture in Vienna and the Styria region

Architects, civil engineers, building owners and property developers as well as university representatives from Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway toured the region of Vienna and Styria to take advantage of the latest technology within wood construction and energy-efficient building. Austria has a proud tradition of timber construction and techniques, which have been modernized and adapted to our times.

This year´s study trip offered a well-balanced mix of site visits as well as close-up looks into high-quality production. Among the latter were makers like Hasslacher Norica Timber, CLT-wizard Mayr-Melnhof, windows and doors by Gaulhofer and urban developer Obenauf. In bright and beautiful mid-March spring weather the group visited numerous interesting wooden buildings such as HoHo – a 24 floor wooden building in Vienna, nursery Kinderkrippe Schönbrunngasse, hall of residence Studentenwohnheim Leoben, pleasant housing comlex Wohnanlage Seefeld, nursing home Pflegewohnheim Peter Rosegger and social housing Hummelkaserne. The visits were interspersed with various events, networking dinners and presentations where the Nordics and Austrians had the opportunity to discuss and exchange experiences.
