Astoria a hotel build in CLT

In the past two years we ‘ve worked hard on two hotel projects abroad. While the renovation project in Switzerland was finished end of 2020, the renovation and extension of the +/- 10.000 m2 hotel Astoria in Austria was delivered to our client Intersoc last month.

Together with VandeAlps architecture, local architect, Boydens Engineering for MEP, Ingenieurbüro Wimmer+Partner for structure, main contractor RHZ-Brandl and the interior contractor Glocom Projects we built 76 new hotel rooms, a new multifunctional space and 4 activity rooms, while renovating most of the existing hotel.

Thanks to our sustainable choice for CLT, cross-laminated timber, as the primary structural building material, we could keep the construction time of the new hotel wing and the renovation just under 14 months during Covid-19. By using wood as structural building material and as exterior and interior cladding instead of concrete, brick, metal and plaster, the hotel gains 2.628 tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere! A leading step forward towards a climate-conscious attitude for the hospitality sector.
