Austrian family-run company Pittel+Brausewetter provides construction services in civil engineering, industrial building, and the construction of roads, homes and offices, bridges, pipelines, rail tracks, golf courses and sporting facilities.
The company has a number of modern production sites at its disposal. Pittel+Brausewetter has a strong focus on service and goals thanks to (its own or jointly owned) concrete and asphalt mixing plants plus its in-house laboratory.
Its 10-hectare central construction yard in the south of Vienna offers a range of resources. The company has its own production plant here, a laboratory dedicated to quality control, a gravel silo and a central workshop. An administrative office and the company’s construction material recycling firm ContraCon border the site.
The company’s headquarters are at 16 Gußhausstraße in Vienna’s fourth district. There are further sites across Austria in Inzersdorf (Vienna), Tulln, Zistersdorf-Maustrenk, Herzogenburg, Eisenstadt as well as Bratislava (Slovakia).
As an Austrian family business with close to 150 years of history we have a long tradition of solid values and carefully developed know-how at our disposal. Quality and skill are the most important drivers of our long-term success.
Thanks to our sustainable focus we are a steady and reliable partner for our clients. Our fairness, capability and, above all, reliability, are particularly valued by our customers.

Patent: six-hour paving concrete
An essential consideration in renovating concrete road surfaces is the point at which traffic is allowed to drive on the surface again once the concrete has hardened. Usually traffic can only drive on the surface again 12 or 24 hours after concrete is applied.
Pittel+Brausewetter has been able to develop a paving concrete that can be driven on just six hours after application.
The concrete has reached 50 per cent of its compressive strength at this time. An inspection can be done with equipment that shows compressive strength with a calibration curve. This innovation marks a clear improvement for all concerned – especially drivers.
