Gaislachkogl, 3S Gondola, Austria

The new 3S system in Sölden, Austria is a technical marvel with numerous firsts. Firstly, special foundations were designed to deal the geological challenges associated with building in a permafrost zone. Secondly, vehicles are equipped with special dampening mechanisms and permanent ventilation features. Lastly, a new evacuation concept was developed to ensure that no online evacuations would ever need to occur. Instead, this new technology ensures that the vehicles can always be returned to the station.

Tasks and responsibilities for this project included Officials Approvals, and Safety & Building Analysis.
