Summer excursion 2024

The guiding theme of Sustainability 2.0 led us to two new buildings in an urban development area outside the centre of Zurich and a conversion of a historic SBB workshop building on the edge of the track field. The Zwhatt high-rise by Boltshauser Architekten in Regensdorf features a hybrid construction of wood and concrete. Building Q in the SBB workshops shows the conversion of the protected building on Hohlstrasse. The Allmend school building in Greencity Manegg connects the neighbourhood with an accessible roof for sports and leisure activities. Many thanks for the inspiring guided tours on site.

Civil engineering works Clinic 2 at Basel University Hospital

Civil engineering work began in April and the extent of the four-storey excavation pit can already be seen. The large drilling rigs are constructing the bored pile walls close to the existing building, which is a major challenge while the hospital is still in operation. Many thanks to the prudent employees of the contractors on site and the site management. The planners are pleased that the work is progressing smoothly and on schedule.

Building application submitted

On March 12, 2024, we were able to submit the building application for the new Graubünden University of Applied Sciences Center. On site, construction profiles are now rising into the light blue spring sky of Chur. At the same time, the first preparatory work is already underway, such as the rerouting of the Mühlbach creek south of Pulvermühlestrasse and the demolition of the existing buildings on the site. Construction is scheduled to start at the beginning of 2025. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the client, the Graubünden Building Authority, the users of the Graubünden University of Applied Sciences and, last but not least, all the members of the entire general planning team for their good cooperation. We look forward to the next steps in the project development.
