Installation of a new LED light by the MA 33 on Dorotheergasse

Project management for luminaire replacement project of the city of Vienna (MA 33)

In 2017, municipal department MA 33 of the city of Vienna (Vienna Glows) launched a project to plan for the replacement of the conventional luminaires used on catenary suspensions to light public areas with modern, energy-efficient LED luminaires. These measures serve to save energy and to provide innovative energy efficiency as part of a “smart city” approach.

The task

The Spirit in Projects team of experts supported MA 33 in overall planning of the implementation project estimated to run until 2020. This included planning of the requirements gathering and planning processes for luminaire replacement as well as their purchase and installation and finally, disposal of the old luminaires.

Our approach

Spirit in Projects drew on its expertise in project management to support the development of scheduling as well as resource and cost planning. In addition, communication and escalation plans were defined and a system of reporting established as preparations for optimal project execution. A proactive risk management system and detailed planning of stakeholder information likewise served to ensure the project would run smoothly.
