Office building Actelion Allschwil
175 new workplaces realized within 18 months
Actelion has awarded Gruner Ltd the general planning contract to realize the office building designed by Herzog & de Meuron on the adjacent site of the H91 research building. For functional, design and economic reasons, the architectural concept envisages a fusion of research building H89 and office building G06 into one overall volume. In close cooperation with the client, Gruner AG developed the office layouts and planned the building services installations for the office space together with the specialist planners. In the new building 350 office workplaces and an auditorium were created. Gruner AG managed the realization of building H89 / G06 as general planner. With a circumferential balcony, which provides natural shading and serves to clean the window surfaces from the outside, the office and laboratory rooms merge into the outside area. Communication zones are located at the head ends of all floors, connected by elegantly curved spiral staircases, thus making the attic accessible.
In addition to all of Gruner's planning services, the general planner took over the overall management of all architectural, civil engineering, building services planning and specialist services. Thanks to the well-rehearsed planning team, the object was built within a short construction period.
