The new Generali Arena

A win for Austria Wien

Originally it was the České srdce ground, built in 1925 by what was then the first-division Vienna football club SK Slovan, and in 1973 it became home to FK Austria Wien – thus Generali Arena looks back not only on a long football tradition but also on a history of expansion and new buildings. The stadium’s recent renovation, carried out from 2016 to 2018, represents a major step forward, including in terms of sustainability.

Building Information Modeling

Yes to BIM

Ecological print products

Green means go!

When it comes to sustainability, action speaks louder than words. It isn’t enough to vaguely take up an ecologic cause or to meet standards that feel just about “green” enough for the target group. Actual ecological action is deeply rooted in conviction, which is what we are focused on in all areas of our company – even if this means more of an effort.
