Refurbishment concept and damage mapping


1996 – 2006 (with interruptions)

The project

The work included damage mapping from a cherry picker, description in a specification and site supervision.

The cathedral

Salzburg Cathedral is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Salzburg. The baroque building, which was completed during the Thirty Years’ War, is a listed building and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The baroque-style west elevation is particularly magnificent with its figural decoration and 81-metre-high towers. The façade is clad in Untersberg marble, a light-colored limestone similar to marble.


Natural stone offers infinite value and status through its formation over millions of years and its unique character, color, texture and durability.

Inclusions and layers of stone tell stories that instill respect; natural stone represents creation and transience like no other building material.

Great respect and the ultimate feel for stone are required when it comes to choosing the right stone for your project. Specialist knowledge and decades of experience, which are often only passed on internally, are in demand and priceless. Even if design and sales already have an idea, they cannot be left alone here.

Which stone, from which quarry, is suitable for realizing the architect’s design. A deep knowledge that the client can trust. Transparency and partnership relieve the burden on those responsible in advance and ensure the desired effectiveness, which is the basis for the added value of the buildings.
