What actually is building construction?

The term building construction denotes a sector of the construction industry. Building construction projects are divided into different categories based on the requirements regarding design, construction, technical specifications and economic efficiency. The common denominator in building construction projects is the ongoing use of the building by people and the related demands in terms of optics, comfort and sustainability. Offices, residential buildings, schools and hospitals are at the heart of our daily lives. Aspects such as noise pollution, interior design and room layout are considered right from the planning stage. This includes the whole range of Infrastructure.

 

 

 

Residential construction – quality living through innovation & sustainability

The future of homes is flexible, multifaceted and personal. And that’s why we erect feel-good buildings in which everything is simply just right. The motivation to achieve this mission leads to innovative projects that offer optimal quality of life. Our painstaking execution, high-end fittings and cost efficiency enable us to realise holistic and carefully thought-through living concepts. They bring together the worlds of life and work and are simultaneously modern, functional and environmentally sound. For sustainable living spaces that hold their value.

Whether it’s new-build housing or renovations, our contemporary residential construction projects showcase our knowhow and cutting-edge knowledge of energy efficiency, indoor climate and finishes. Other priorities include our love of detail and sense of responsibility towards developers and residents. With integrated, modern residential concepts, PORR creates the living spaces of the future.

Healthcare facilities – focus on functionality & wellbeing

Healthcare facilities are multifunctional places that need to do justice to many different needs: medical, economic, structural and – above all – human. Functionality is the decisive factor here: processes must run as efficiently as possible, while the set-up needs to strengthen people’s sense of wellbeing and provide emotional support.

PORR can point to multiple projects that underline its leading competency in this field and that additionally make a sustainable contribution to economic prosperity and increasing living standards in the respective region. Projects in the healthcare sector are realised in close collaboration with our subsidiary hospitals, which has far-ranging expertise in the design, development and operation of healthcare facilities. From care homes and hospitals to centres for nuclear medicine: as a design and build contractor, we are a strong and reliable partner from the planning phase right through to ongoing operations.

Revitalisation – preserving the old & shaping the new

As a construction company with a history going back more than 150 years, we recognise the value in buildings from the past; after all, they form part of our culture and the way we see ourselves. Preserving these values for the future while simultaneously using the space in an economically feasible way presents a huge challenge. One that calls for precision, quality awareness, creativity and craftsmanship. Our love of detail and passion for creating something new and innovative from something old and precious is what makes us stand out in this field. We not only renovate heritage-protected properties, but also revitalise cultural treasures and carry out concrete repairs.

Intelligent revitalisation can lead places to rediscover their identity. Respect for history and for every phase of a building’s lifecycle is the priority here. PORR approaches these projects with the view that there is something worth preserving. But that they are also a chance to create something new. When renovating heritage-protected properties or revitalising cultural treasures, there is a wide range of approaches and designs – from barely visible to a completely new image, from energy-efficient facades through to revitalising existing building complexes. It is projects like this that prove that an optimised environmental footprint and maintaining a building’s substance can actually go hand in hand. In line with our motto: Building for a climate-neutral future.

Industrial and miscellaneous construction – meeting the sector’s highest requirements

Industrial construction is a question of trust. Here precise knowledge of all of the industry’s requirements is just as essential as specialist insight into complex work processes or specific business fields. Projects often take on mammoth dimensions, demanding the maximum in terms of concept, execution and logistics. Our range of services includes the construction of highly sensitive and technically demanding clean and ultra-clean rooms for the semiconductor industry through to mobile communications facilities and special

The fact that multiple industrial construction clients have been coming back to us for years is a sign of trust: our clients appreciate the knowhow of our team and the quality of our personal support – in planning, building technology and services as well as turnkey constructi

Educational institutions – the right backdrop for education and training

Whether it’s a school, kindergarten or university: buildings for training and education rightly demand more than just a functional space. They not only leave a mark on their environment, they also have a huge impact on the development of the youngsters that are studying here for their futures.

That’s why we see it as a huge responsibility – and a nice challenge – to create buildings that have an equally positive influence on the cityscape and on people, whether the facilities are educational or administrative.

Every investment in education is an investment in a future worth living in. This also holds true for our projects in educational construction. With both new builds and renovations, the focus is on optimising the lifecycle and developing sustainable standards. Here the shift facilitated by digitalisation is a constant companion. As a trailblazer in digital infrastructure, we apply integrated planning to every project phase with the highest possible quality.

Retail centres – economic viability, logistics & customer experience as key aspects

Whether it’s a shopping centre or department store: these projects are characterised by their high demands in terms of economic viability, design, space planning and logistics. Every one of these points requires a solution that can only be provided by a specialist with vast experience, like PORR.

Shopping has become a pleasurable pastime and this means that goods must be presented to appeal to all of our senses. Today’s customers have ever greater expectations of the range and set-up of the retail space.

Shopping centres oftentimes succeed with additional recreational facilities and culinary hotspots, which have to be considered already in the initial planning phase. Shops in inner-city locations have to blend in with the existing ensemble and often need to reconcile the fabric of a historic building with contemporary logistics.

Stadiums – breathtaking backdrops for sporting excellence

Football has been captivating people for more than 150 years. And we give it the space to do so. For EURO 2008, PORR was responsible for extensive new construction and upgrades at the stadiums in Klagenfurt, Wals-Siezenheim and Innsbruck. Special requirements for dismantling meant that the decisive factors were flexible planning and precisely calculated time-plans. For the World Cup in Qatar 2022, we are the design-build contractor for the Al-Janoub stadium in Al-Wakrah, which we are building in an international consortium.

Infrastructure measures related to the stadium such as parking, eateries or TV studios can also be handled by PORR as a full-service provider.

Project management in building construction – building is a question of trust

BIM and LEAN open up new opportunities

At PORR we understand the importance of trustworthiness in our dealings with developers and subcontractors. The use of digital tools provides the opportunity to monitor the evolution of a building constantly and in real time. The use of LEAN Management and BIM (Building Information Modeling) right from the planning and design phase opens up new possibilities for cooperation between clients and contractors. Seamless documentation, avoiding planning errors and defects, and securing a better cost overview are just a few of the many benefits that come with digital project management. Consideration of property certification right from the design and build phases comes as standard at PORR. Our dedicated department for building certification has more than a decade’s experience in this field.

Safer together with “Vision Zero”

The health and safety of our workforce is the top priority. Highly trained specialists, internal knowledge transfer and cutting-edge processes support the goals of “Vision Zero”. From their very first day, every PORRian is trained in every protective measure and promises to uphold our quality and safety guidelines. This will enable us to reach our long-term goal of zero accidents together.

Sustainable building for generations

Not just in the construction phase, the issue of sustainability is also prioritised when designing spaces to live and work. Proximity to nature and access to recreational areas are key factors for end clients when making their choice. This is why, roofs, facades and mezzanines are increasingly being greened on new builds in order to improve the building’s climate and quality of life. A clear trend has also emerged in the popularity of public transport or electric vehicles, which means that part of the areas normally used as driveways etc. can be repurposed completely and help to satisfy the desire for outdoor spaces.
