Forward-looking real estate solutions that simplify and enrich life.
Division Real Estate
Through forward-looking real estate solutions, we enable people to realize their preferred lifestyle – and our partners to substantially increase their success. Our 100 or so specialists develop sustainable living and working spaces, structure unique investment offers, manage assets and portfolios and create innovative, scalable real estate products.
User-driven innovation: we are inventors, not administrators
Our customer-oriented, interdisciplinary approach is helping to shape the future of the real estate sector and the living and working environments of present and future generations by developing more useful, simpler and more ecological solutions and bringing them to life with great conviction. As smart adopters in the changing real estate industry we stand for an open dialogue with all market players and are cultivating our solutions ecosystem with the Center for Integrated Building Capabilities.
Sustainable return on investment: we are growers, not speculators
We stand for Swiss values like reliability, precision and long-term thinking. We generate sustainable returns and develop pioneering solutions, with a special focus on the circular economy. Our successes in developing and realising real estate that is forward-looking and generates value speak for the quality and reliability of what we do.
Hands-on know-how: we are makers, not consultants
We have solid expertise, a strong track record and many years of expertise in the construction and real estate industry; unique synergies allow us to deploy these within the Group as a whole for the benefit of the investors, operators and users of our properties. Curiosity and the constant striving for the greatest possible benefit for our stakeholders determine our actions and drive us to overcome the boundaries of our industry.
True partnership: we are entrepreneurs, not sales people
We consistently focus on partnership-based processes, integrated teams , digital systems, and shared knowledge and experience, which we actively promote in a culture of appreciation and transparency. The high quality and reliability of what we do are the foundations of the mutual trust on which our most valuable asset is based: our long-term relationships with customers, which generate value and delight and enable even more shared success.
Committed to sustainability
We are convinced that sustainable construction is not only an ecological necessity, but also offers various advantages for our clients and investors. Therefore, since 2009, we have been continuously expanding our internal sustainability competencies from acquisition and development to realisation and operation, and can now draw on established integral solutions and processes in the following areas:
Advice on project-specific sustainability strategies at building or site level
Analysis of climate risks and derivation of appropriate design measures
Efficient certification of a building according to various building labels such as SNBS or DGNB
Development of buildings according to national decarbonisation path (Net Zero Carbon Buildings)
Automated calculation of a life cycle analysis based on a BIM model
Energy optimisation of a property based on cubature, orientation, insulation, heat source and renewable energy
Development of recyclable, prefabricated building components
Issuing material passports at the level of a building
Implementation of monitoring systems for automated collection of energy and water consumption values at building and portfolio level
This makes us an attractive partner for the development of future-oriented real estate.
Real estate is our passion. Curiosity and a permanent endeavour to achieve the greatest possible benefits for our stakeholders determine what we do and drive us to go beyond the limits of our sector.

Implenia develops, rents and sells modern and sustainable flats throughout Switzerland. From idyllic complexes in natural surroundings to forward-looking housing in vibrant, urban neighbourhoods, our range meets all requirements for comfortable and diverse living.
The exponential increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations since industrialization is leading to an enhanced greenhouse effect. As a result, irreversible damage is being done to natural ecosystems and to our society. Based on this realization, the decarbonization approach has to become the focus of real estate development and construction.
Our research and the resulting decarbonization white paper provides you with all the necessary insights and information on this future-oriented and relevant topic. The data basis of the white paper consists of a broad portfolio study of 36 Implenia development projects based on SIA 2040, which was carried out in 2022.
