The HABAU GROUP companies HABAU, KARL SEIDL and HELD & FRANCKE are working together to deliver the construction project in Vienna’s 21st district: An office building for 60 HELD & FRANCKE employees is being built at Autokaderstrasse 78-80. Right next door is an employee housing facility with 91 beds. To mark the beginning of the construction works, a ground-breaking ceremony was held on 15 March 2021 in compliance with applicable Covid19 restrictions. District Leader Georg Papai, HABAU shareholder Georgine Rumpler-Heindl and HABAU GROUP CEO Hubert Wetschnig were all in attendance. “The project has given us several reasons to celebrate: On the one hand, we’re investing 13 million euros in Floridsdorf and creating long-term jobs. On the other, HELD & FRANCKE is using this location to further expand its regional sales activities in Vienna and northern Lower Austria,” Wetschnig explains delightedly.
For the HABAU GROUP, the project is also of particular importance because it is being delivered entirely ‘in-house’. HABAU GROUP shareholder Georgine Heindl: “As a group of companies that all started with a family business, we are proud that this project is being implemented entirely within our HABAU GROUP family.” Project managers Thomas Schweiger and Jürgen Waidbacher also highlight the positive collaboration: “The companies involved, HABAU, KARL SEIDL and HELD & FRANCKE, have shown that they are able to perfectly harness the synergies within the Group.” The building has a gross floor area of approx. 5,500 square metres and meets high energy efficiency standards. In terms of materials, the team have opted for concrete and glass for a contemporary design. Completion is scheduled for June 2022.
