General refurbishment of an office building on Rathausplatz.

In February 2019, Eisenschutzgesellschaft m.b.H. received an order from PORR Bau GmbH for extensive painting work at an office building undergoing a general refurbishment. The building in question stands at Rathausplatz 2 at the corner of Ebendorferstrasse in Vienna’s 1st district. It comprises a basement level and nine above-ground floors.

In addition to applying coatings to brickwork, plaster, concrete and drywall, the order also included a range of painting work on metal surfaces.

We began by carrying out preparatory cleaning and grinding work on concrete and drywall surfaces.


After that, we applied a primer coating to the walls and ceilings and completely covered all concrete surfaces with spackle. We also fitted edge protectors to all corners and outer edges.

Our highly trained staff then turned their attention to the wall and ceiling surfaces, using rollers to apply two coats of interior dispersion paint. We sanded the metal surfaces and lift structures to prepare them before using standard artificial resins to apply the desired colours. After just ten months, we successfully finished the work to the complete satisfaction of everyone involved in the project.
