We see architecture as form and function made to measure
Winning the big contract is only part of it. In order to satisfy our standards, a project must go one step further and address the wishes of our clients. Our goal is to answer these questions to the best of our abilities. Our solutions are tailor-made.
As general planners we are complexity solvers
As one of the largest general planners in Switzerland with decades of experience we reliably implement major projects and always monitor the magic triangle of schedule – cost – quality: This is what we consider to be our mission.
We are leaders in the application of the BIM method and use Virtual Reality.
People at the centre of everything we do
In our daily work with architecture, people and their ideas, wishes, and needs are always our first concern. We want to create spaces for people that inspire.
In our cooperation with our clients and project partners, we are aware of the power of a common goal. All parties involved in a project must complement one another’s capabilities and live by the principle of interdisciplinary teamwork. Communication must be clear, transparent, and respectful.
For our employees, we want to create an environment that forms the foundation for outstanding performance: the joy of doing what we do.
We consider sustainability in architectural projects to be an integrated, unique, context-related, and comprehensive approach and a process that we pursue from the outset reinforced in cooperation with all stakeholders.
Construction projects have an impact on the built environment in Switzerland. They affect the social, economic, and environmental climate. We are aware of our moral responsibility and use sustainability as the stimulus for innovation and as an exciting challenge in all our projects.
As one of a few Swiss Architects and general planners, we have expertise in all current environmental certifications including Minergie / -P / -ECO, DGNB-SGNI, SNBS, LEED, SméO, 2000-Watt Society, OnePlanetLiving, Well and others.
A concept emerges from the location, the design brief, and through our own interpretation. Our architecture shapes spaces which, with their high practical value and ambience, evoke emotions. Our buildings pay homage to beauty above and beyond purely functional and technical demands. The questions we pose are ones of vision, of future scenarios, and of strategies.
We plan, monitor and control the entire process from the initial planning stage to completion and commissioning, and we keep a constant eye on the critical trifecta of schedule, cost, and quality. The experience we have gained from hundreds of complex construction projects has been distilled into practical tools. Our project managers regularly share their best practices, ensuring that all of their combined vast experience is on tap for all our projects.
Planning for us means more than merely drafting the construction documentation. Thanks to our comprehensive experience based on intensive dialogues with technical experts and with the authorities, we are able to cover every aspect relevant to the project.
Every month across Europe we turn planning results into real buildings to a value of around 30 million Swiss francs. We organise, coordinate and manage the entire construction process. The standards we set ourselves in terms of efficiency and quality represent our top priority and we pay special attention to logistics and to the critical path when we have complex projects to handle.
