The consultancy is growing - Inauguration of the new office premises

Vienna, December 04, 2017


Extensive construction works to enlarge the consultancy have been successfully completed as scheduled. After a construction period of only four months, the new office premises have been inaugurated at the beginning of December 2017.

A highly increased number of clients entailed a doubling of workforce at the payroll accounting department so that more office space was needed. Due to the acquisition of an adjacent private flat additional office space could be added to the existing building complex. The consultancy now consists of more than 1000 square meters.


The new offices are equipped with ergonomic work desks, air condition, a cafeteria as well as wash rooms. Planning and execution responsibility were again in the hands of architect Claus Radler who was in charge of the renovation of the consultancy premises some years ago. The construction works also include the refurbishment of the outer facade and are still in progress.
