Green & Blue Building Award 2017

Award of the reusable substitute school at Torricelligasse

Green & Blue Building Award

The Green & Blue Building Award pays tribute to real estate projects where, on the one hand, sustainability is of particular importance and, on the other hand, projects that help new technologies to prove themselves. This year, the award was presented for the eighth time in the categories “Products / Services” and “Real Estate Projects” as part of the Green & Blue Building Conference in Vienna.

Modular wood-steel construction

The alternative school Torricelligasse 50, 1140 Vienna stood out as a sustainable flagship project in the category “real estate projects”. This “mobile property” in modular prefabricated timber-and-steel construction, which was developed and realized by WIP Wiener Infrastruktur Projekt GmbH on behalf of the City of Vienna – MA56 – Viennese Schools, can be dismantled up to five times and moved to another location being constructed. The architects  Maurer & Partner and Raumkunst planned the ecologically high-quality and modular alternative accommodation of the New Middle School at Kinkplatz, which was built in a short construction period of about seven months. The general contractor for this project is ÖSTU-STETTIN Hoch- und Tiefbau GmbH..
