Children´s day care center Pötzleinsdorf
Three new buildings for approx. 300 children in prefabricated wood construction
The children´s day care center at Pötzleinsdorfer Straße 230, 18th district Vienna, will be rebuilt in spring 2018 in two phases during ongoing operation with a gross floor area of approx. 3,600m². The special location right on the edge of the Vienna Woods offers about 300 children forest, meadows and a lot of space to let off steam. Commissioned by the City of Vienna – MA10 – Vienna kindergartens, WIP Wiener Infrastruktur Projekt GmbH, a subsidiary of Wien Holding subsidiary WSE Wiener Standortentwicklung, is building three new prefabricated wood houses. The design is from the architectural office DI Michael Schluder and the execution is done by Ing. W.P. Handler Bauges.m.b.H. At the beginning of October 2016, the ground-breaking ceremony for the KIGA Pötzleinsdorf project took place.
Opening houses 1 + 2
The partial opening of the first two houses took place at the beginning of November 2017 by Education Councilor Jürgen Czernohorsky, District Manager Silvia Nossek and Wien Holding Managing Director Sigrid Oblak. By spring 2018, the third house will be replaced by another new building. Furthermore, the children can watch the construction process from a secure platform. The children´s day care center Pötzleinsdorf is ideal because of its location, because it offers the children a lot of space in the green as well as inside the building.
Nature is in the foreground
Particular attention is paid by the WIP to the environment or ecological aspects. The children´s day care center is being built using sustainable low-energy construction methods from wood prefabricated parts. The advantages are low noise pollution and a short construction time. Other aspects are the use of ecological building materials, geothermal probe and heat pump for heating (natural gas supply for peak coverage) and a locally natural greening of the roof and the facade or the use of local woods (such as larch). Landscaping measures are also implemented, whereby the preservation of the diversity and frequency of the animal and plant species as well as their livelihoods and habitats is very important.
“Children are our future.”
“It is all the more important to create good environments for their development in their early years. With this kindergarten, the high-quality offer in Währing will be upgraded once more”, said District Manager Silvia Nossek.
