From the architect. The building functions as an interface between road, rail and waterway transport. The delivery and outgoing goods sections embody the dynamism and efficiency of the company voestalpine SSC.

Architecturally, the financial success of the enterprise is symbolised by the wide open access gates. The projecting roof structure intensifies this statement and directs attention towards the qualities inherent in the company's signature material - steel.

In the heterogeneous environment of the industrial zone with its company signs and logos, the building epitomises functionality and credibility. The concept reflects the market-economy demand for "corporate architecture".
