New office building in Green Village, Geneva | New residential and commercial building on Alleestrasse, Biel | Contracts worth more than CHF 100 million in total

Glattpark (Opfikon), 21 July 2022 – Implenia’s Division Buildings won two attractive contracts in western Switzerland. As large, complex real estate projects with a focus on sustainability, they are fully aligned with Implenia’s strategy. They are also proof of the Company’s strong position as Switzerland’s leading construction and real estate service provider.

“Kyoto”: a new office building in Green Village, Geneva
Swiss Life Investment Foundation has commissioned Implenia as total contractor to construct an office building, called “Kyoto”, in the new Green Village neighbourhood being created on the World Council of Churches site in Geneva. The contract is worth more than CHF 60 million and will last about two years. Implenia Division Real Estate is responsible for developing the Green Village neighbourhood, while Implenia Division Buildings has already built the “Montreal” residential building on the site. Including the ground floor, the new building “Kyoto” comprises ten storeys, which will be partly fitted out to the future tenant's requirements. Sustainability plays a central role in the development of the Green Village, which is why the aim is to have the new building certified under SNBS. The project was planned using BIM, while execution will apply Lean Construction methods.

New residential and commercial building on Alleestrasse, Biel
Implenia, acting as general contractor, has been asked by Meili Unternehmungen AG to build two new replacement buildings with five full stories in the Brühlstrasse Süd area of Biel. A total of 105 rental apartments are planned, together with commercial space on the ground floor facing the street – and all to a high architectural standard. The project has resulted from a study contract carried out by Meili Unternehmungen AG, which was won by architects Bart & Buchhofer AG. The solid-wall building has a ventilated wooden facade and will be fitted with a ground-source heat pump and a large-scale photovoltaic system. The project is worth CHF 42 million and will last about two and a half years.
