What is important to us
As an owner-managed family business, we combine traditional values, such as trust, consistency and security, with innovative thinking. We have regional roots but an international outlook.
Our passion for construction, property and excavators as well as our high standards of professionalism are what set us apart from the rest. From building within existing structures to large-scale urban development projects and specialised civil engineering projects, we are experts in every one of our services.
How we work
The success of our projects is essentially shaped by two factors: the hugely professional work of our employees and an openness to creating partnerships. We always treat our partners as equals, both internally and externally. This promotes and secures the long term development of the entire company.
We have aligned our market position with the following fundamental cornerstones:
- Uncompromising craftsmanship and quality
- Responsible use of resources
- Fair partnerships across the board
- Handling projects with municipalities at eye level
- Employee appreciation
- Taking pleasure in the implementation of projects
- Procurement of regional resources
- Market coverage from local branch offices
As a family business, we have naturally always supported a range of educational programmes, youth initiatives and non-profit organisations, and we mostly do it without saying very much. In this way, our successful activities have an impact on youth work in associations, the commitment of social organisations, the education of young people or, for example, the integration of refugees.
In the past, our fathers simply called it being helpful, today we understand it as corporate social responsibility.
Construction of i+R Group headquarters
A statement of our own intent: The corporate headquarters of the i+R Group were completed in 2012. It is Austria's first platinum-certified LEED building in its class.
