Inside Drees & Sommer

With over 50 employees, Drees & Sommer in Austria has been supporting private and public principals as well as investors in all real estate-related issues.

Such prominent projects as the Vienna University of Economics and Business, the Gerngross City Center Vienna and the residence of the Norwegian Embassy were among the early foundation stones of our sustained success.

Since then, Drees & Sommer has successfully overseen over 500 Austrian construction and real estate projects. Additionally, the Drees & Sommer team has leveraged Vienna’s strategic proximity to Eastern Europe and, as the Group’s CEE center of competence, regularly oversees projects in Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia and Romania.

Our company has become especially well established in the areas of project management, project controlling, engineering, real estate investment consulting and technical due diligence, as well as real estate and facility management consulting. The strong support and expert integration of Drees & Sommer SE also makes it possible to offer all other services of the entire Group. The Vienna team is considered the innovation leader in the Austrian construction and real estate business, pioneering such concepts as Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction Management (LCM®), Cradle to Cradle® and Smart Commercial Building.
