Roche Diagnostics Ltd's office high-rise in Rotkreuz
More than just a façade
At its site in Rotkreuz (ZG), Roche Diagnostics Ltd is constructing a central administration building with a 67-meter-high office high-rise. The architectural design was the work of the winner of a closed competition, Burckhardt+Partner AG of Basel. Roche Diagnostics is setting extremely high standards in terms of how the energy concept interacts with the building's usability and its envelope.
The building demands a highly optimized energy consumption and carbon footprint. For this reason, and also to provide a secure planning framework, the client commissioned Gruner Ltd to investigate the quality of the distinctive glass façade with regard to energy and comfort.
