Shell works running in parallel with organisational restructuring on the client side
The new Vienna Networks corporate headquarters is a major office project. With construction costs amounting to 200 million euros, the project is one of the most impressive of current office buildings. The project is currently one of the largest construction sites in Austria.
Major projects always require good project control skills, particularly when the organisational development is still ongoing while construction is in progress. That was the case here, with the shell works for the new corporate headquarters taking place in parallel with the fusion of the two companies Vienna Energy Power Network and Vienna Energy Gas Network into Vienna Networks.

A smart campus with smart project development
From the client’s point of view, if the teamwork is functioning properly, the battle is already half won. The joint venture carried out a team-building workshop, in which the client, consultants and the main contractor took part – an investment that definitely paid off. All members of the project team pull together, working towards a common goal, to produce a high quality property for the client.
