A special feature of the project was that the buildings built in Phase 1 produced the timber elements used in the buildings built in Phase 2. This creates a true sense of identity for the employees working in the office building, because they are surrounded every day by the materials that they produce in-house.

ATP Innsbruck designed a new operating facility with production in Pians, from which Markus Handl Beteiligungs GmbH will supply upscale restaurants and hotels across Tyrol and Vorarlberg. One highlight of the project is the innovative use of the material wood, which the design team has interpreted in both a traditional (façade) and a modern (timber slab) manner.

This design office is delighted by the awards and prizes received by two outstanding buildings that they were able to successfully complete despite the difficulties caused by the lockdown:

The district and shopping center ALEJA in Ljubljana, which was completed in spring 2020, has won the ICONIC AWARD 2021 in the category “Innovative Architecture” and is also one of four projects worldwide nominated for the Global RLI Award in the category “International Shopping Center – New Build”.

The innovative Viega seminar and distribution center in Attersee, which opened this summer, generates more energy than it consumes. The ecological flagship project has been recognized by the award of platinum certification by the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council) and Gold certification by the Austrian government’s “klimaaktiv” initiative.

Both projects were exclusively integrally and digitally designed with BIM (Building Information Modeling) by ATP architects engineers. BIM2FIM – which was used at Viega – is currently a major talking point in the sector.

Learning with BIM: High school graduation project for Africa

Lisa Kogler and Hanna Draxl, pupils of HTL Imst, chose a graduation project that combines references to traditional African building culture with all the requirements of climate-friendly construction. The design for a ward at the “Jordan Medical Center” (JMC) in Ghana, which is funded by donations, has received a number of awards and was created as a “digital twin” using Building Information Modeling in cooperation with ATP’s BIM manager Philipp Zimmermann.

BIM-QM: Learning from Mistakes

On this year’s – virtual – Heinze ArchitekTOUR, Lars Oberwinter, Managing Director of the ATP subsidiary Plandata, is lecturing on “BIM Quality Management 2.0”. As part of his lecture the BIM expert is presenting two tools developed by Plandata that will soon be available on the market and explained how one really can learn from mistakes (in BIM models).

Summer, Sun, ALEJA!

District center brings its own charm to the fore.

The skin of the Slovenian “dragon”, which reacts to rising temperatures, is shimmering and the green activity roof is luring visitors. In the warmer seasons, the “urban” forecourt and the shady terraces of ALEJA Sky are powerful attractions. The new SES shopping and entertainment center in Ljubljana, which was integrally designed by ATP, has been open since May.

• Lehre:
ATP CEO Christoph M. Achammer was Professor for Integrated Construction Planning and Industrial Building at Vienna University of Technology between 2002 and 2022.

The interdisciplinary cooperation between architecture and engineering and modern knowledge management have enabled ATP to became Europe’s leading integrated design office.

1,500+ employees in twelve offices across the DACH+CEE Regions, supported by in-house research, specialist design, and consulting companies, plan buildings for clients from the research & industrial, retail, real estate, and health sectors. Pioneer of integrated design with BIM (Building Information Modeling)

Today, integrated design is a prerequisite for high quality modeling and reducing waste. It is the key to sustainable, resource-friendly, and energy-saving buildings. ATP has been designing integrally for 45 years and BIM has been employed in all building projects since 2012. ATP‘s cooperative integrated design culture is the result of many years of interdisciplinary practice. In contrast with conventional, consecutive design processes, integrated design enables all the advantages of BIM to be exploited in the interests of sustainable design quality.

To this end, ATP makes full use of the „corporate structure“ of the group by acting as a learning organization that is permanently developing through the sharing of knowledge between offices and specialist areas.

The future is green

Thanks to its in-house expertise, ATP is able to offer its clients the verticalization of its range of services: In the spirit of the European Green Deal and in line with the need for a CO2-neutral existence, expertise is pooled and employed both before and during the construction process. As a result, the current considerable potential for waste in the building industry can be minimized through lean processes and the careful use of resources.

Consulting offices specializing in such areas as sustainability, process engineering, and project development help clients to decide whether and which building measures are necessary, well before the start of the design process. By focusing on the core process that is due to take place within a building, the order quality is defined with the help of a project strategy based on a feasibility study. This is followed by the first phase of the integrated design process, which is oriented in line with a sustainable use period. Throughout the entire design and construction process and right up to the point at which the building is handed over to the facility management, an interdisciplinary team of architects, structural and building services engineers, and site supervisors is headed by a Lead Project Manager. Due to ATP‘s standardization of key design processes, responsibility can be delegated within this team without any loss of quality.

Career and partnership

A wide range of career paths and opportunities are open to ATP‘s architects and engineers. Expertise is developed and passed on in both the offices and the ATP Academy. The ATP partnership (since 1990) of 8 partners, 45 associate partners, and 104 associates enables employees to demonstrate their share of corporate responsibility and enjoy their share of corporate success.

Research and teaching

Due to its close cooperation with Vienna University of Technology and other universities and universities of applied sciences, ATP permanently plays a leading role in scientific research into integrated design and BIM. ATP is a founding member of the DGNB, the ÖGNI, and IG Lebenszyklus Hochbau.
