Building services design
All-round comfort

We develop intelligent integral concepts for buildings where owners and users can feel at home. The life-cycle perspective nonetheless remains firmly in focus.

Light, shade and the indoor environment are simulated before the first pipe is even laid. Architecture, structure and M&E equipment are skillfully reconciled throughout the concept, design and implementation phases. As experts in the use of geothermal energy, gas and biomass for heating, cooling and electricity generation, we are also helping to implement Switzerland’s energy strategy 2050.

Building Automation Systems: We take into account the specific building requirements, from automation control and energy management to building-wide monitoring solutions. Our building automations solutions are tailored to each building's individual needs and provide centralised control over all building services including heating, ventilation, lighting and access control.

Building Environmental Control: Our building environmental control design service offer solutions that integrate all building services into a single system that allows you to manage not just comfort but also energy efficiency, safety & security while reducing operational costs. We customize our building designs according to the climate conditions of particular areas; making sure the building temperature is always comfortable with automatic cooling or heating as needed.

Design and Construction of Datacenters: We specialize in designing datacenters that are energy efficient, cost effective and reliable. Our building designs take into account the high-tech equipment used in data centers such as cooling systems, power supplies, networking equipment and other hardware. We make sure that the building construction is able to handle the increased weight and heat generated by the datacenter while also providing a safe working environment for operators.

Electrical Installation Design: Our electrical installation design services include designing wiring layouts, cable tray systems and specifying electrical components required for the building. These designs are tailored to meet specific building requirements and provide an efficient system for building owners.

Geothermal Systems: Geothermal systems offer an efficient way to heat or cool buildings without emitting harmful emissions into the atmosphere. From geothermal heat pumps to vertical installations, we design and supervise the installation of geothermal systems to meet building requirements.

Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration: We provide complete building comfort services for heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration. Our designs are tailored to meet building specific needs while providing optimal energy efficiency and user comfort.

Wholistic Building Construction Design and Project Management: We provide building construction design and project management services that focus on the life-cycle of a building - from conception to demolition. Our services take into account all aspects of building construction including materials selection, building layout, structural integrity and cost effectiveness, as well as environmental impact.

District Heating & Cooling: District heating and cooling systems provide an efficient, cost-effective way to heat or cool multiple buildings in a specific area. Our design services include building connections and equipment selection as well as monitoring & control of the system.

Building Energy Systems Design: We design building energy systems that integrate all building services into a single system for maximum efficiency. Our building designs take into account building requirements such as occupant comfort, energy management and safety & security while reducing operational costs.

Design of Laboratories, Clean Rooms, Research and Educational Institutes: Our specialized design services cover the full scope of building design from laboratories to research institutes. We make sure that the building construction is suitable for the delicate operations within these areas while providing a safe working environment with optimal user comfort.
