London, 21st January 2022 – With its annual ranking of the world’s largest architectural offices, “Building Design’s annual survey of the top global practices” is one of the sector’s most respected publications. This year, ATP was able to successfully defend 1st Place in Western Europe in terms of contract volume. In achieving this, ATP’s greatest successes came in the Science and Technology sector, thanks to projects including the integrated design of Europe’s most state-of-the-art grain mill for GoodMills (Germany), the energy-efficient headquarters of the cosmetics company Ringana (Austria) and the Seminar and Sales Center of Viega (Austria), an ecological flagship project that generates more energy than it consumes and has been awarded platinum certification by the German Sustainable Building Council.
“We want to do justice to the responsibility of the building sector to future generations and have committed ourselves to climate-neutral and sustainable designing and building in the shape of our own ATP Green Deal” says ATP CEO Christoph M. Achammer. He sees the good ranking as confirmation of the role of integrated design as the only logical form of future-friendly building planning. “Only through close, interdisciplinary cooperation will we be able to achieve the EU’s zero-emission targets and make the world a better place with our buildings.”
By occupying 16th Place on Building Design’s “Big List” of the 100 Biggest Players in the Architecture Scene, ATP is not only a global leader but also Europe’s second largest design office.
