Renovation of the headquarters of an international organisation in Geneva
An important international organisation has asked Implenia to carry out a complete renovation of its historic headquarters in Geneva. The project will last approximately two and a half years. The work includes updating the facades and security installations to meet modern standards, completely redesigning the communal areas and 1,200 workplaces, as well as modernising the technical equipment and installations.
Implenia won the project as general contractor in a competitive tender. This win was based on its previous mandate as a general planner and on a previous new build carried out for this international organisation. The project requires that historical elements are maintained while ensuring high architectural quality. The renovation is designed to meet strict sustainability requirements and was planned using BIM. Lean Construction methods are being used for the actual construction work.
