About ATP History

History

It is 70 years since we began learning from our clients – learning about their needs and their modern ways of working. Since then, our work has been process-oriented. 45 years ago, we took the pioneering decision to focus on interdisciplinary collaboration and developed our culture of integrated design. Our broad partnership of architects and engineers has now embodied this culture for 30 years.

Established as a one-man architecture office in post-war Europe, ATP architects engineers swiftly developed into a successful planner of production and logistics buildings. In the 1970s, this knowledge of modern integrated production methods led to the integrated cooperation between architecture and engineering within the growing company. The objective of ATP’s in-house core competence – the integrated design of complex construction projects – is to realize sustainable, resource-friendly, and energy-saving buildings with maximum design quality and planning security. Since 2012, integrated design at ATP has also received data-based support from BIM. An in-house BIM standard developed over many years is now available to all market users. Due to its close relationship with Vienna University of Technology, ATP is closely involved in academic research into integrated design and BIM.

With 900 employees, ATP is one of Europe’s leading integrated design companies. It designs for clients from the production, real estate, retail, and health sectors at its Head Office in Innsbruck (AT) and ten other offices across the DACH and CEE Regions, supported by in-house research, specialist planning, and consultancy companies. Partners, associate partners, and associates embody ATP’s corporate culture. Through their interdisciplinary commitment to the ATP Academy, knowledge management, gender equality, and a family-friendly working environment. The ATP partnership enables employees to assume corporate responsibility and share in corporate success.
