HoHo Vienna: A case study of an 84m tall hybrid-timber tower

At 24 storeys (84m) HoHo is currently considered to be world’s tallest hybrid timber tower. Featuring a slender profile made possible through an innovative combination of concrete, steel, and timber structural components HoHo reached completion in mid-2019 and is now home to a busy combination of apartments, offices, a hotel, a restaurant, and a wellness centre.

In this webinar the Mid-rise Advisory Program welcomes a representative of HESS TIMBER (a member of Hasslacher Group, the key supplier of prefabricated timber structural elements for the project). In this webinar you'll hear directly from a key project stakeholder about the detailed level of prefabrication and the challenges associated with such a significant project.
