Our passion and drive have been instrumental to the success of numerous projects both domestically and all around the world.
All of those projects have different characteristics, different background stories and different specific requirements.
But each and every one of them embodies our whole experience.
They are all unique.
From industrial hangars to high-bay warehouses, from bold suspension bridges to glass skyscrapers in the world’s largest cities, we have realised more than 2000 projects over the years.
The following selection showcases our various areas of competence.
Cable car station
Construction at dizzying heights
The new summit station of the Zugspitzbahn cable car was built at an altitude of nearly 3,000 metres: Germany’s highest construction site. The project was completed in 2018. During the construction, PICHLER projects demonstrated that Alpine high-altitude structural engineering is among its specialisms. Precise planning, specialist expertise and skilled workmanship visually blended the steel into the mountain, creating the impression of a building floating above a precipice. Despite many challenges, such as extreme weather, an initial lack of infrastructure for transporting materials to the summit and difficult geological conditions, we were able to erect the structure and building envelope of the summit station on schedule.
We also played a key role in the construction of the valley station. Albeit reduced to its essential function as an intermediate station on the way to the architectural highlights – the cable car and the summit station – it was just as complex an endeavour. Sourcing the load-bearing structure and the envelope from the same provider is greatly beneficial for projects on a tight schedule, such as cable cars.
