A pavilion for future utilization for events is built on the roof of Leopold Museum, which is part of the Museum Quarter in Vienna’s city centre.

Extensive measurements and analyses were carried out in order to be able to assess the impacts of the vibration intensive construction activities in the course of the erection of the level on the roof structure of the Leopold Museum on the exhibition rooms and art objects in the interior of the building. In this process the vibrations occurring were determined during test drillings at the facade of the Leopold Museum at the positions with paintings deserving particular protection (Schiele, Klimt).

In coordination with the representatives of the client recommendations for safe assembly during the construction works were elaborated based on the results (relocation of especially critical objects, elastic storage of all wall paintings).
