The St. Pölten Technology Center will accommodate two functions: the training workshops of WIFI Lower Austria and the New Design University, St. Pölten. The central idea that informs our proposal is to bring together these two main functions in one building. For one thing, this keeps valuable development areas free for other uses, and for another, it creates an opportunity for interdisciplinary communication between different users.

- Sofwtare used: Autodesk Navisworks Soka Performing Arts Center and Academic Building project. BIM modeling review was utilized for the MEP systems and the structural steel frame for both buildings. This allowed the parties in various locations to “meet” to review the design layout and construction. At the early stages of the project, weekly on-line model review meetings were conducted between the owner, engineer, equipment suppliers, McCarthy and other key site contractors. During construction, specific on-line BIM conferences allowed the team to review any installation conflicts or issues and provide quick resolutions.
