Structural design

Homes built to Minergie® standard

Designed to meet the Swiss Minergie energy efficiency standard, the urban development comprises ten residential and commercial buildings plus an underground parking lot (12,000 m2). The excavation was supported by strutted and tied-back sheet piling. The water table was lowered by means of a deep drain installed by trencher. The buildings stand on a bored and displacement pile foundation. Other notable features include cantilevered building elements involving prestressed concrete slabs and the use of fair-faced concrete for the external works.
