“Schiebel Elektronische Geräte GmbH” arranged a strategy competition in summer 2005 for a production hall with an integrated office building, which should represent the identity of the international aviation company. Because of a nearby testing area in close proximity of an airfield, the site in Wiener Neustadt was chosen as a ideal location. The design of project A01 architects ZT GmbH won the competition and the architects were commissioned to the design the building, the interior and to conduct the construction process. The work started in fall 2005 and lasted until summer 2006. The completion of the interior was finished in 2007. The building is composed of two parts: The office unit is arranged lengthwise facing the street and the production hall is located next to the airfield. The office area holds the major administrative functions of production, marketing, research and education. The meeting room is attached to a generous deck for visitors, which is used for airshows. The function of the employee‘s area was considered to be important and accordingly arranged with an own terrace accessible from the lunchroom. The production area contains two thousand square meters. The hall holds not only an area for assembly and fabrication work, but also an area for design, development and attendance. The autonomous helicopters are developed and manufactured with the latest production processes. The innovative concept and design of the camcopter was awarded with the „Staatspreis für Design 2005“, the highest Austrian design award, and is distributed all around the world.
