Congress Centrum Alpbach (CCA), one of the first conference destinations in Austria to offer „Green Meeting“ certification for conference organizers – has been a pioneer in the sector since the introduction of this seal of quality.
With the opening of the CCA extension in August 2016, CCA bears the Austrian Eco Label award as a sustainable meeting and events location.
The entire building is nestled into the hillside thus maximising its‘ insulation properties. On all construction levels the ecological criterion has been taken into account, fulfilling both organisers and participants comfort alike and to supply cutting edge technology; the ultimate in energy efficiency combined with modern building technology, energy for the heating and cooling systems generated by a geothermally operated heat pump, optimum heat generated with pellets, a facade with integrated photovoltaic panels and electricity sourced 100% from regional small-scale power plants.
The new centre can cater for a variety of event designs; the spatial flexibility enables a combination of various event concepts in the future.
Thanks to the thoughtful architectural design, the unique townscape of Alpbach remains untouched. It is beautifully evident that, with an architect’s expertise, you can realise sustainable and respectful convention tourism.
