The general renovation of the two objects Wollzeile 1 and 3, located in the heart of Vienna, was to include the creation of high-quality and generous office units of a minimum size of 250m2. This required a large amount of individual interventions into the building: the strengthening and level compensation of a variety of different ceiling systems, which were partially damaged by bomb hits, the adjustment and straightening of existing walls, the demolition and new construction of walls, the instalment of elevators and new air conditioning systems, brick wall strengthening and instalment of new support structures for earthquake safety.
