Austro Tower, Vienna, Austria

New heights with Uponor technology

Vienna has a new skyscraper – and what a fine sight! The Austro Tower is the tallest building on the banks of the Danube Canal in the third municipal district of Vienna – and the fifth-tallest building in Austria. Spanning 38 storeys, it offers some 28,000 m2 of office space, not to mention a conference centre, an employee restaurant and a cafe. The Austro Tower is subject to the most stringent sustainability criteria. In keeping with the strong environmental commitment, the concrete core ceilings of the individual storeys are thermally activated – with the Uponor Contec system.

LEED and ÖGNI platinum standard

Anyone working in or visiting the new structure will, on the one hand, benefit from the superb location – with outstanding transport links to the city centre and airport – and, on the other, the breathtaking view: from above, the new district by the Danube Canal, between the TownTown business district and the new skyscraper complex TrIIIple, can be easily surveyed. Thirdly, the building boasts everything necessary to keep users happy and comfortable, while keeping the impact on the environment and climate to a minimum. The building has been designed to achieve platinum standard, both in the international LEED system and Austrian ÖGNI certification.
‘River power’ and concrete core activation
An innovative energy system plays a key role in this regard. Just like the neighbouring TrIIIple complex, the Austro Tower is heated and cooled using water from the Danube Canal, thereby maximising the location’s potential. The water is channelled to an energy centre in one of the TrIIIple towers, where it is – depending on the season – either heated or cooled using high-temperature heat pumps. The energy is transported into the individual high-rise buildings by means of a district heating/cooling network. Five deep wells act as a backup for the ‘river power’; in an emergency, an electric boiler can be activated. In keeping with the strong environmental commitment, the concrete core ceilings of the individual storeys are thermally activated. Uponor Contec concrete core activation is used.
Uponor Contec for the office storeys
In order to thermally activate the 30 cm-thick concrete ceilings, the installers fitted Uponor Contec modules on the ceilings’ lowest reinforcement layer. The Uponor Contec system not only utilises the surfaces of the ceilings for heat transfer, but also the storage capability of the concrete. For example, the ceilings can be cooled overnight before once again absorbing heat from the building during the day. Some 600 m2 of Uponor Contec have been laid on each office storey, which equates to more than 22,000 m2 overall.
Tacker system for the ground floor and restaurant
In addition to the thermally active building system (TABS), other Uponor products are in use in the skyscraper: the Uponor Tacker underfloor heating system has been installed on the ground floor, the first floor (restaurant area) and the 35th floor. It is also used for cooling on the ground floor. The wet-installation system can be laid exceptionally quickly, as the insulation layer and cover are already incorporated within the Tacker panels. The system is universally compatible with all screed types and the pipes can be easily installed using an ergonomic tacker device.
Support with installation planning
In addition to supplying products, Uponor also advised and supported the installation team, e.g. when it came to installation planning and instructing the installers. The main tenants will be able to move in following completion: the Austro Tower will be the new headquarters of the companies SORAVIA, AUSTRO CONTROL and ASFINAG.

Day-care centre to be built with energy piles

As requested by the City of Vantaa, the Vaaralanpuisto day-care centre has been planned based on the "nearly 0 energy days" concept. Construction work for the day-care centre began in late summer 2016, and the project will be completed in July 2017. Project costs are estimated at EUR 5.4 million, and the day-care centre will accommodate about 130 children. Among the various energy production options available for the site, the City of Vantaa chose the energy pile and solar thermal collector system jointly developed by Uponor and Ruukki.

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

The New Deichmanske Library - Bjørvika, Oslo

Deichman is equipped with Thermally Active Building System - a system for storing the energy in the concrete ceiling. It is primarily a cooling system, but it can also be used as a heating system. When in cooling mode, no energy is used as the heat is drawn into the concrete, only when it is transferred from the concrete and into the water pipes that are cast in the decking. The need for installed power is reduced, and operating expenses are significantly reduced as opposed to in a air-based cooling system. The TABS is cast into the Prefab elements, which is a BubbleDeck construction with spans up to 10.5 meters.

Ilmalanlinna, Helsinki

Due to the interest rates of the floor structures, underfloor heating at Uponor's new head office required a solution that would raise the floor surface as little as possible. A functional result was achieved with an unusual implementation, low-structure underfloor heating plates, which are mainly used in renovations of detached houses, and which increase the floor height by only 15 millimetres.
