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.

Althan Quartier conversion
Althan Quartier will be a brand-new, wholly unique district centre consisting of flats, offices, co-working spaces, restaurants, local suppliers, shops, service providers and hotels. Located in Vienna’s ninth district, it will occupy the 2.4-hectare area right above the Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof railway station.
An office building named ‘Francis’ will be the centrepiece of the Althan Quartier development. The façades provided by PICHLER projects will reduce the environmental footprint of the building and give it an aesthetic, sustainable and functional upgrade. The new design of the façade, which spans an area of 25,315 square metres, is based on plans by architects from DMAA and JWA and inspired by the architect Karl Schwanzer’s original concept.
For the complete exterior of the building, PICHLER projects is planning, producing and installing coupled windows, mullion-transom façades and ventilated metal façades with mounted cassettes made from embossed stainless steel. This gives the building a new, modern, light, welcoming and timeless appearance. The octagonal shape of the inner courtyard will be retained.
Rather than tearing down and replacing the existing building, it will be deconstructed and redeveloped to create ‘Francis’. By making use of the existing structure, PICHLER projects saves 122,480 tonnes of concrete and 10,944 tonnes of reinforced steel, making around 10,000 lorry journeys unnecessary. This, in turn, saves 18,625 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, 67% of the total quantities needed for a new building. Less demolition debris needs to be removed, which reduces dust pollution, construction noise and site traffic.
