Follow every step of the construction works
A 1,000-square-metre pool area. A 1,500-square-metre sauna area. A 3,000-square-metre gym. Spectacular highlights ranging from a heated outdoor panoramic pool to an ice rink running around the building’s entire circumference.
It’s obvious that a project of this size isn’t completed over night. After all, every construction phase is carried out with diligence, expertise and attention to detail.
Nevertheless, construction works on Ischgl’s new luxury spa have significantly progressed since their start in the autumn of 2019. Until Silvretta spa opens its doors to the public, you can get some fascinating insights into the project’s progress in our construction diary. Have a look and get ready for your new favourite spa in the Tyrolean mountains!
The adventure begins! September 2019 sees the starting shot for a project of an unprecedented dimension in Ischgl. Drum roll for Ischgl’s new spa with a pool area, sauna area and gym! At the ground-breaking ceremony in autumn 2019, preparations start for the drilling of the geothermal probes and wells.
Arrival of machinery for well drilling
Big things are happening! The arrival of the machinery for well drilling constitutes another important step in the spa’s construction works. Total weight of the machinery: 85 tons.
Works are resumed after the winter break
In early summer 2020, construction works on the Silvretta spa in Ischgl are taken up again after the winter break. From June until November, a lot is happening at the building site. Cranes and other machinery are working all hours, and the outside of the building is taking shape too.
An eventful time
After the well and thermal probe drillings, detail works are started in the summer of 2021. The last civil engineering works are being completed, and interior, installation and drywall works begin.
The arrival of the 48-ton special crane signifies the start of the last major preliminary construction section of Silvretta spa. The two big connecting elements between the building parts are assembled, and further roofing works and interior fittings are underway.
Interior work continues
Screeds are laid, drywalls are erected, pipes are put in place and ventilation systems and are being installed. In addition to professional electrical installations, the first swimming pools are being welded. The new luxury spa’s outside is also taking shape, with the mobile crane putting the first parts of the spectacular glass facade into place.
Time lapse April to November 2021
Construction work resumed as early as April 2021. The concrete structure and the glass facade were finalized.
