Lifecycle as a matter of the heart
IG Lebenszyklus Hochbau has named Christoph M. Achammer as Honorary Director while also expanding its field of activity.
Vienna, 16th February 2016 – The sustainability and the market-relevant and long-term value creation of buildings are key issues for IG Lebenszyklus Hochbau. In order to address these issues, the organization devotes itself to the promotion of networking between all sectors of the construction and real estate industries. The result is that clients are supported in the design, construction, financing and operation of holistically optimized and lifecycle-oriented buildings. This work is aligned with the three pillars of successful building: organization, culture and processes. Activities in all these three areas are covered by guidelines, models and specifications drawn up by interdisciplinary and cross functional groups of experts.
These plans and objectives are also embodied by Professor Christoph M. Achammer, founding partner and CEO of ATP architects engineers. Since the establishment of IG Lebenszyklus Hochbau in 2012 he has worked painstakingly to support the organization’s concerns and has made a huge contribution to pushing this agenda forward. In recognition of this commitment he was named Honorary Director of the organization during this year’s first event for members and interested parties. And an end to his hard work is also not in sight. Achammer will continue to energetically support the organization and, on November 8th, he will also take his place on the jury of the first Lifecycle Awards.
Alongside the announcement of the award there were a number of other exciting issues on the agenda of the event which was marked by a spirit of change. The focal point was the expansion of the IG Lebenszyklus Hochbau in the direction of infrastructural projects which also led to renaming of the organization as IG Lebenszyklus Bau from the beginning of March. Austria’s largest quality offensive in the lifecycle-oriented design, construction and operation of buildings was also presented following a period of intensive preparation: Entitled “CHANGE THE BUSINESS,” the countrywide campaign is designed to contribute to the implementation of all the guidelines developed by the organization to date as standards for future-oriented building.
