Relocating to business location Upper Austria

Are you planning a new building, an extension or a renovation? Then please get in touch with us!

Regardless of whether you want to establish a new company or expand an existing business to Upper Austria, there are a multitude of permits and official procedures that need to be organised. We have been successfully advising companies for years on how to establish contact with the authorities efficiently and sustainably.

Investment projects require capital spending. We are familiar with suitable financing and funding instruments and can help you obtain what is best for your business.

Support in official procedures and obtaining permits

In order to accelerate and simplify approval procedures, we provide you with an experienced procedures coach who will guide you through the necessary processes. We prepare a project check, plan together with you the official activities needed for each project phase and jointly review the prepared documents.

Our procedure coaches provide you with the following services free of charge:
•    Support through inter-agency coordination of approval procedures, e.g.

  • according to regional planning with regard to land use permits,
  • construction and industrial law in terms of building permits and plant operation licences,
  • water law permits,
  • forestry law,
  • nature conservation permits, etc.

•    initiating contact between district administration, local municipality and other authorities
•    organising and participating in meetings with authorities
•    consolidating project documents required for planning permission based on the company's data
•    close cooperation with the company's project manager, who is responsible for the internal coordination of the project
•    consulting planning specialists, e.g. for noise protection analysis or emissions calculations
•    participating in official negotiations and public participation procedures
•    providing professional support and mediation in the event of objections against your project (e.g. in conflicts with local residents)
•    accompanying experts, e.g. during external negotiations and on-site inspections

We are your single point of contact for all regulatory issues and can help you coordinate your contact with the various authorities.

Resident relations management

New company buildings and expansion projects not only mean change for companies and communities, they also have an impact on residents near the site. To create a solid foundation for a smooth, efficient and successful project as well as a neighbourly future, professional resident relations management is required. Resident relations management focusses on a company's relationship with the people living nearby. Authentic fact-based communication is just as important as informing the right people at the right time.
