Opening of Traisenpark
Integrated design with BIM facilitated the creation of a “dynamic” structure
St. Pölten, 17th March 2016 – With its spectacular sweeping canopy supported on “dancing columns”, the entrance to the refurbished and extended Traisenpark shopping center is more attractive than ever. The new building has now been now officially celebrated during an opening evening in the presence of the Mayor Matthias Stadler, the Provincial Minister Petra Bohuslav and many customers.
“Our objective was to use integrated design to preserve as much of the existing building as possible and refurbish this to the highest standard as a means of creating a flagship project for shopping center refurbishment,” explained the ATP architect Birgit Reiterer. She went on to describe another special aspect of the concept: “The new Traisenpark simply couldn’t have been realized in this way if ATP hadn’t used its design tool BIM (Building Information Modeling).”
The center manager Anita Bräunlich was also delighted that every phase of the mega-refurbishment and expansion project had gone so smoothly. “The rebuilding and extension of the center over the course of the past three years was a truly mammoth task for all those involved but the result speaks for itself.”
