Meticulous Reconstruction after Conflagration
The task of reconstructing the Sofiensaal (converted into a concert hall in the 1840s by the architects Siccardsburg and Van der Nüll), which was in a state of almost complete ruin after the great conflagration of 2001 and the subsequent years of being left vacant, was another especially extensive project for our company. 3,700 ornamental plaster pieces were recast in our studio in Königshof based on the fragments made available to us. Approximately 70,000 leaves of gold were needed in order to restore the gilded stucco to its original state.
Constantia and Fortitudo Back on the Roof of Vienna’s Central Fire Station
In the tragic crane accident of 2007 Lorenzo Matielli’s monumental group of figures above the gable of the former Civil Armory was almost completely destroyed. Repair work went beyond the usual reconstruction of broken sculptural parts to include the sculptural reconstruction of an entire figure. Using historical photographs it was also possible to correct mistakes made during post-1945 reconstruction work.
Laser Cleaning of Stone Surfaces
We pay special attention to selecting the optimal cleaning method for each particular material and type of damage. For this we employ a range of abrasive blasting processes. In addition, we have increased our use of the Palladio Nd:YAG system for laser cleaning since 2009.
