Well-known projects such as the Vienna University of Economics and Business, the Gerngross City Center Vienna and the Norwegian Embassy Residence laid the foundations for long-term success at an early stage.

Since then, Drees & Sommer has successfully supported over 500 Austrian construction and real estate projects. In addition, the Drees & Sommer team has been able to take advantage of Vienna's strategically favorable location as a gateway to Eastern Europe and, as the Group's CEE Competence Center, regularly supports projects in Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Croatia and Romania.

The company has particularly established itself in the areas of project management, project control, engineering, real estate investment consulting and technical due diligence, real estate & facility management consulting. Thanks to the strong support and expert integration of Drees & Sommer SE, the company also offers all other services of the overall group. For example, the Vienna team is regarded as an innovation leader in the Austrian construction and real estate industry, driving forward topics such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Lean Construction Management (LCM®), Cradle to Cradle® and Customized Smart Buildings.
