Vienna, mid-19th century. The bastions and ramparts are being buffed up, a new cosmopolitan city is taking shape. In its centre is the Ringstraße, a sumptuous boulevard that will lend its name to an entire epoch. And Allgemeine Österreichische Baugesellschaft is playing a significant part in the structural transformation. Since its foundation and IPO on the Vienna Stock Exchange in 1869, its growth trajectory has been impressive. In 1908 the company A. Porr Betonbau was founded together with the civil engineer and pioneer of concrete construction, whose name the company is proudly bears to this day.

PORR has been shaping the Austrian construction industry for 150 years and has made building history with countless projects from the interwar years, the post-war rebuilding period and modernism through to today. These include the Vienna Museum of Technology, the Großglockner High Alpine Road, the Vienna Ringturm, Stuttgart 21 (DE) and the Greenline metro in Doha (Qatar).
