Takeda – Building project of superlatives

Lorenz Consult supports the largest domestic employer in the life sciences sector in the construction of its new location in Vienna.
The pharmaceutical giant Takeda, headquartered in Tokyo, is building a new research and development site for about 250 employees in the Seestadt Aspern. From 2025 onwards, the technically and ecologically optimised new building will be used for research in the fields of neuroscience, oncology, gastroenterology and rare diseases, among others. As general planner, Lorenz Consult is taking over all construction planning services from the feasibility study to turnkey handover.

The building has a very strong green building character and is certified as a Total Quality Building (TQB). This includes requirements for accessibility and comfort, but above all many ecological aspects – from resource-saving energy efficiency and the use of sustainable energy sources to greenery and garden spaces. As a result, this building creates the optimal conditions for the future of pharmaceutical research.
