We are specialists for building services engineering and energy plants, general planning, construction, infrastructure, environment and safety, and hydroelectric power plants. Throughout our history, we have helped shape Switzerland through our involvement in numerous important buildings.

Already in 1947 Eduard Gruner wrote in his technical essay

«Journey through the Gotthard Base Tunnel in 2000»

the idea: He explains the approximately 50 kilometer long
Gotthard Base Tunnel from Amsteg to Biasca with one station at Sedrun, which was opened in June 2016.

He was the first to have this visionary idea.
