Environ­ment

Far-sighted, caring approach for the benefit of future gene­rations

All our projects have an impact on society and the environment. Hence the emphasis on safety, responsibility and environmental compatibility in all our design and operational activities. To meet this interdisciplinary challenge, we draw on the assistance of specialists with a wide range of backgrounds.

Environ­mental Plan­ning

Workable solutions at the intersection of humans and the environ­ment

Activities
Air quality, assessments of expediency, construction noise concepts, ecological site supervision (ESS), emission forecasts, emission reports, environmental assessments / statements, environmental impact reports (EIRs), environmental site supervision, feasibility studies, invasive species (invasive animals, inva-sive plants), landscape conservation, landscape development concepts, negotiation support, pedological site supervision, public relations, soil conservation concepts, strategic environmental planning, variant comparisons

With our in-depth knowledge and many years of project experience, we advise both public and private clients. We plan and supervise their projects in the area land and the environment. The focus of our activities is on environmental impact reports (EIRs) and ecological site supervision (ESS).

The preparation of the first EIR in 1988 and the successful ESS of the Gotthard Base Tunnel North make us one of the pioneers of these services in Switzerland.

Buildings are subject to increasingly stringent quality and comfort requirements. At the same time, with high-grade insulation now a standard feature of building envelopes, weak points such as thermal bridges and leaks have a far greater impact than previously. To counteract this, all potential weak points are factored in at the design stage.

Whatever the project type – new build, refurbishment or failure analysis – Gruner can draw on long years of experience and cutting-edge tools to provide you with expert advice.

The Gruner Group’s wide-ranging expertise also enables it to find integral solutions to interdisciplinary problems. By teaming up with our building services specialists, for instance, our building physics unit can also develop comprehensive energy strategies.

Economic success places high demands on mobility. The railroad system is a core component of the overall transport infrastructure, providing a high level of efficiency particularly in urban centers. At the same time, interregional passenger and freight services also benefit from a well-developed rail network. In addressing these needs, our generalists and specialists work together to develop customized end-to-end solutions.
