Topping-out ceremony for the new Health Service Center (HSC) Lazarettgasse
Vienna, 6th November 2013 – Work has been completed on the shell and core construction of the new Health Service Center of the WPK (HSC Lazarettgasse) with its offices and consultation center. The topping-out ceremony was an opportunity for all project participants to join client representatives for a ceremonial get-together. The traditional speech by the youngest apprentice and breaking of a glass were then followed by festivities marking the completion of the roof which continued long into the evening.
The shell and core construction allows one to already recognize the multiple uses of the building. It will include centers for x-rays and computer and magnetic resonance tomography, a consultation center, seven-day surgeries and an office wing for the WPK administration. Patients, doctors and nurses and the administrative staff of the WPK will be able to enjoy a pleasant working and visiting environment. Generous window openings also offer wonderful views of the city and the adjacent park.
