What we are building on
Implenia builds homes, workplaces and infrastructure for future generations. In order to achieve the vision and make the mission a reality, all our employees focus everyday on the five values that shape the corporate culture and guide the company’s day-to-day work.

Division Real Estate develops sustainable real estate solutions. Implenia is already a leading real estate developer in Switzerland and is currently expanding this business in Germany. The Division’s services also include active asset and portfolio management, the design of new types of real estate investment vehicles, and the development and industrial production of standardised and scalable real estate products.
Division Buildings focuses on the integrated conception and construction of complex new buildings and challenging modernisation projects. The focus is on providing expert customer-oriented advice and planning across the entire life cycle of a property. The range of services covers the entire value chain, from initial analysis and planning steps – often even before the contracts have been signed – to handover of the finished building. Implenia is a leading general and total contractor in its core markets of Switzerland and Germany.
Division Civil Engineering offers tunnel construction, special foundations, civil engineering and road construction. Services range from the planning of specific special solutions to the entire execution of challenging, complex, hybrid infrastructure projects. The use of the latest construction methods and processes, such as BIM and Lean Construction, is becoming increasingly important. In all of these areas, Implenia occupies a leading position in Switzerland and Germany. Implenia also offers tunneling and related services in other international markets.
Division Specialties develops solutions for an efficient and sustainable construction industry in niches such as timber construction, geotechnical engineering, pre-tensioning technology, facade technology, building technology planning and construction logistics. By continuously adding new services to its portfolio, the Division actively helps to shape the major changes in the construction industry. Innovation and the added value it brings to customers is a central theme. This innovation can come from screening potential acquisitions, from external partnerships or from Implenia’s internal innovation management.
