Dietlikon, 18 November 2013 – Various clients in the Greater Zurich region have commissioned Implenia to modernise their buildings. The overall value of these recently acquired contracts exceeds CHF 100 million. The projects are a mixture of total and general contractor orders from both the private and public sectors. They include refurbishment of apartment blocks and commercial buildings, a school conversion job and a repurposing project involving the creation of new apartments from what was commercial space.
