Hospital Planning

Klagenfurt Hospital: Modern environment for mental illnesses


The new building of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy is well received shortly after opening: Annually, about 2,300 inpatients are treated here and 11,600 outpatient contacts are recorded. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult was responsible for the local construction supervision to ensure that all construction work was carried out in the spirit of the modern health care facility.

Building and planning under changing conditions

Future concepts under the sign of climate change and sustainability


The construction industry and its clients are concerned about energy efficiency and resource conservation. Both topics go hand in hand with costs and dependencies on suppliers. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult from Graz finds the optimal solution for every project – be it new construction or renovation.

13 years of BIM in planning

Virtual reality on the construction site thanks to BIM


In terms of digitalization of construction, general planner Lorenz Consult has been a pioneer since 2005. More effective cross-functional planning and the mapping of the building in 3D further led to the introduction of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in 2009. The list of successfully implemented major projects is long, and the development continues – right up to the use of head-up display glasses.

Planning in the old stock

Prudent planning before intervening in existing buildings


When reconstructing, renovating or extending existing buildings, precise project development is required. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult has been dealing with this for decades and has comprehensive competence in planning and implementation for existing buildings.

Company anniversary

Dipl.-Ing. Werner Lorenz and Lorenz Consult celebrate 50th anniversary


The family business started in 1972 with the planning of supporting structures made of concrete and steel. Since then Lorenz Consult has developed into a general planner and is positioned worldwide. With the entry into the pharmaceutical industry in 2003, DI Werner Lorenz, his son DI Christian Lorenz and the team became internationally sought-after experts as cleanroom planners. Current projects: The construction of the Graz surgery, the new construction of the Takeda laboratory building in Vienna, ongoing expansion of steel plants worldwide and many more.

Light-footed through the official jungle

Lorenz Consult accompanies infrastructure and logistics projects from the first enquiry to the last approval


Buildings today are complex structures that have to comply with a multitude of legal requirements. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, knows all the hurdles that have to be overcome. Whether it is a matter of building applications or applications for permits for operating facilities, the Graz-based general planning company operates according to the principle of the one-stop shop and thus enables its clients to handle all officially relevant issues from a single source, even in the case of very extensive projects.

Construction project of superlatives

Lorenz Consult supports the largest domestic employer in the life sciences sector with the construction of its new site in Vienna


The pharmaceutical giant Takeda, headquartered in Tokyo, is building a new research and development site for about 250 employees in the Urban Lakeside 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 the turnkey handover.

Hospital planning

Pediatric surgery Graz: recovery room with plenty of space and atmosphere


There have recently been better conditions for operations and more space for small patients in the recovery room of the pediatric surgery at the LKH Graz. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult realized the structural wish of the extension within record time and that during ongoing operations.

Crisis-resistant logistics ensures availability of goods


The Corona pandemic demonstrates that logistics must be crisis-resistant. Regional warehousing continues to gain in importance. Without long transport routes, production is also ensured. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult coordinates building planning and transport logistics.

Equipped in the home office: Lorenz Consult stays informed and flexible with BIM


The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult has been dealing with digitalization for 15 years. This experience pays off in times of the Corona pandemic, lockdown and home offices. Employees have access to models and data of construction projects at all times. The influence of BIM has a particularly positive impact on the work of civil engineers.

Food production / Food Chain

High-end production in a clean room close to the pharmaceutical industry


Lactosan produces in defined clean room zones, depending on whether feed, food or pharmaceuticals are produced. The clean rooms are adapted to the hygienic requirements of the specific product. The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult accompanies the company Lactosan in the development, planning and realization of the biotechnological industrial buildings..

Defying the crisis: Avoiding supply bottlenecks


Availability of urgently needed goods is indispensable, especially in times of crisis. The Covid 19 pandemic has shown that supply bottlenecks have an impact on costs and health. Lorenz Consult is currently planning a model project to demonstrate the importance of nearshoring.

Blocking viruses from pharmacies & Co


The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult from Graz is making pharmacies, doctors’ practices, hospitals and primary care facilities fit for a second wave of corona. Because: Health care must be guaranteed for everyone even in pandemic times.

Coronavirus in ongoing hospital operations

Coronavirus: protection against epidemic thanks to Biosafety

From the perspective of an expert from the construction industry


The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult from Graz is strongly represented in the health sector – in laboratory planning or the implementation of large laboratory and hospital projects. With the corresponding expertise, it is possible to counter threatening diseases such as the coronavirus in a structurally correct way. The necessary protection of the personnel and the environment is becoming more and more important.

Labor 2020 – Not Utopia but Reality


Lorenz Consult implements a laboratory extension with heat extraction +++ The international pharmaceutical manufacturer Fresenius Kabi Austria expands its laboratory space in Graz by 4,500 m².
Building services planning and construction supervision are in the hands of the civil engineering firm Lorenz Consult.

Hospital planning with a sure instinct


Many things are changing in the health sector: state hospitals are becoming focal hospitals and robotics are moving in. These are just two phenomena that the civil engineering firm Lorenz Consult is confronting with expertise, sophisticated planning and vision.

A suitable home for factory 4.0


Digital factory planning +++ The civil engineering office Lorenz Consult helps companies to develop digitization processes and thus to gain more competitive advantage. The “DARWIN” research project at Magna Steyr in Graz or the reconstruction of the 3M plant in Villach show how this works.

Team Leader Lorenz

Sound technical knowledge paired with a digital view of the future


When it comes to digitisation in construction, the civil engineering office Lorenz Consult from Graz is the right partner. This has been proven in two current projects. As part of the “Digital Factory” research project, they are also helping to shape the future.
