The Central Office for Fire Prevention, the State Fire Department Command and the State Fire Department School are located at Leithabergstraße in Eisenstadt. During the countless training and information events, every day a large number of members of the Burgenland fire department need to be catered to. To ensure that all employees feel at home right way, the powder-coated serving area’s colour perfectly matches the classic fire department red and the other furniture. The work cabinets are equipped with hygienic Swingline handlebars in the serving and the back areas and make sure that hygiene standards remain high but cleaning efforts stay low.
The rounded worktop corner (hand-welded with a radius of 270 mm) makes the employees’ everyday life easier as well. Four recessed power outlets on the servers’ side allow simple moving and positioning of the easily movable dispensers (plate dispensers, bain-marie, etc.). Another special aspect of this project is the return area: a roller track behind a stainless steel door receives the trays. The approximately 5 metre long track takes the dishes directly to the dishwasher in the kitchen. Thanks to METAGRO’s robust design, the entire serving counter area is intended for long-term and maintenance-free use.
The Harrods department store is one of the most expensive shopping facilities in London and enjoys similar popularity among tourists as the KaDeWe in Berlin. After Parliament and Big Ben, it is the third most visited city in London. Founded in 1834 by Charles Henry Harrod, the building was completely destroyed by fire in December 1883 and then rebuilt in its present form in the style of eclecticism.
The Rettenbach glacier and the Tiefenbach glacier are among the largest glacier areas in Austria open to winter sports lovers. They are not only connected by a 1.7 km long road tunnel, but are also the only two glacial ski areas in the Alps connected by slopes. The restaurant Tiefenbachgletscher is located at an altitude of 2,800 metres, offering not only a fantastic view of the Ötztal Alps, but also room for 600 seats.
Wiesenthal is a car dealership rich in tradition and with an eventful history. In the 1920s, Günther Wiesenthal laid the foundation for today's companies when he founded Mercedes-Benz sales businesses in former Czechoslovakia and Vienna. Some of the biggest milestones in Wiesenthal's history are the development of the American market in the 1970s and the Slovak market in connection with the fall of the Iron Curtain in the late 1980s. Even though the name Wiesenthal is inseparably associated with the Mercedes-Benz, the company has long since become a "full-service" dealer with a wide range of brands.
Quality, solidity and good design are important for product and external presentation. For the new design of a showroom in Vienna-Donaustadt, the focus was put on modern design touches by covering columns and bar furniture with stainless steel. The most unusual piece of furniture, however, is a coffee-making station in the design of Nespresso products. The big challenge for METAGRO was to fabricate the drawers curved fronts without any seams. Supreme welding and grinding efforts were necessary to get the desired visual results. The worktop was designed with a special edge in a large radius. This radius merges seamlessly into the substructure, where the sliding doors and the waste element are integrated. A chute for used coffee tabs was seamlessly inserted into the front of the waste element.
