Completion of the floor slab

Building site update

This week our Hargassner Service Centre construction site has reached a major milestone: By the end of the week, all the floor slabs in the basement had been completed, and the first ceiling above the basement is already well under way. A total of 3,000 m³ of concrete has been poured so far. This tremendous progress in just one month is only possible thanks to the dedication of our partners, who have endured the hot temperatures outside.

Facts & figures about the Hargassner Service Center

Hargassner builds new service centre


On the 16th of June, at the headquarters of Hargassner Heiztechnik in Weng, Governor Thomas Stelzer was welcomed. In a small circle, the groundbreaking ceremony for a new large-scale project of the managing directors Anton and Markus Hargassner was to take place – the “Hargassner Service Center”. Included in the project was a world premiere – a staff car park that will be built of 100 per cent solid wood. This will save 8,800 tonnes of CO2 .


Demolition of existing park structures on the site started in May. This gave Governor Stelzer a good idea of the dimensions of the new buildings on the site. The ground-breaking ceremony, which he performed together with the Hargassner directors, District Governor Mag. Gerald Kronberger and the mayor of Weng, Gerhard Wiesner, officially marked the start of the company’s expansion by a further 32,000 m² of gross floor space. With their vision for the future of new and existing customers, the Hargassner brothers are planning, among other things, to expand the research and development facility to include a large customer service centre and a complete redesign of the spare parts management department. This will put customers and their interests at the centre of everything we do. With some 16,000 small parts bins in the fully automated warehouse and 2,500 pallet spaces, it will be one of the most modern spare parts centres in the world. The guests of honour were very impressed by the highlights of the construction project:

Hargassner Service Center

Perfectly integrated

The architecture of the new customer service and spare parts facility is characterised by large wooden facades. The structure of the Customer Service Centre creates a seamless link with the existing Research and Development Centre and has its transition to the Energy World Administration Centre. Beneath the new building is a new sprinkler system for the entire site. Its water volume of almost 1,500 m³ is equivalent to 12,000 bathtubs. This will increase safety throughout the site. In this way, the existing building and the new building are combined to form a visually and functionally coherent corporate complex.

Nursery and rental offices

Family is one of the core values of the family-owned company. Two years ago, the company was handed over to the next generation by the founders, Anton and Elisabeth Hargassner, and sometimes you can already see the third generation jetting through Energy World. For the new building, they, therefore, decided to invest in young people by also building a nursery.


In addition, consideration was given to regional businesses. The new building complex offers state-of-the-art office and commercial space in various sizes for rent. This is an ideal opportunity for young and small companies or start-ups from the surrounding area to have a brand new and sustainably built company headquarters without high investment costs.

One of a kind: a multi-storey car park made of wood

The simple word “Wooden Car Park” is the name of a future architectural landmark in a class of its own. Far away from megacities and architecture shows, Austria’s first car park made of 100% solid wood is being built, easily visible from the main road. With a total of nine mezzanine floors – five storeys high – it is worthy of any metropolis. Only the staircases are concrete. The capacity is almost 500 (!) parking spaces. Electric charging stations for 30 cars are planned. The wood of the car park and the minimal use of CO2-intensive materials such as steel and concrete will store and save CO2 in the long term. The wood will also be reusable in the distant future and there will be a 500 kWp Photovoltaic system on the roof.


The region’s top investment

The company’s rapid growth has made it necessary, following the major expansion of the administration area and the doubling of the production halls last year, to also focus on customer service and the spare parts warehouse. The total investment in the headquarters and the region’s future amounts to 45 million euros. It is a matter of course for Hargassner that 95% of the total order volume was placed with regional companies. This motivation for regional appreciation is intended to strengthen the technological know-how at the Weng site and the regional economy.


All the guests present at the ground-breaking ceremony agreed that Hargassner’s exemplary expansion of the site will strengthen the economic region of Braunau and the entire Innviertel, as well as setting a clear signal for sustainability.
