Office and commercial building in Lucerne | New building for the cantonal hospital of Lucerne | Several modernization projects in German-speaking and French-speaking Switzerland | Contracts totaling almost CHF 150 million

Glattpark (Opfikon), November 16, 2022 – Implenia’s Buildings Division received an order from SBB Immobilien for the construction of an office and commercial building on the Rösslimatt site near Lucerne station. The company is also building a new children’s hospital/women’s clinic for the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital (LUKS). In addition, Implenia won four new modernization projects in German and French-speaking Switzerland; modernization works are becoming more and more important for the buildings of the Division.

Rösslimatt, Lucerne – offices and commercial premises
As part of the development of the Rösslimatt district in Lucerne, Implenia is constructing an office and commercial building for SBB Immobilien right next to Lucerne station, with space for around 1,000 employees as well as a wide range of retail and ground floor restaurants. Implenia was commissioned as a total contractor to carry out the basic construction. The Rösslimatt site is developed sustainably and according to high quality standards: in addition to certification as a 2000 watt site, the building will be built according to the DGNB silver standard. The project, worth more than 50 million francs, began in September 2022 and will take two good years to materialize. The Lean Construction method is used for the execution phase.

Lucerne Cantonal Hospital – new children’s hospital/women’s clinic
Implenia has won the contract to build the new children’s hospital/women’s clinic at the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital (LUKS). Construction projects in the healthcare sector are a strategic focus for Implenia’s Buildings Division. Work on the project, worth 40.8 million francs, began in August 2022 and will continue until mid-2024. The new building will facilitate the further development of pediatric medicine (paediatrics and pediatric surgery), as well as obstetrics and gynecology at the highest level. It marks an important step forward for healthcare provision throughout central Switzerland.
The building will be operated sustainably thanks to the Minergie-P-ECO construction standard, an electricity network based on an energy bank under the new building (270 geothermal probes) and a large-scale photovoltaic system on the roof. The project is planned and executed with BIM (Building Information Modeling).

Modernization projects in German-speaking and French-speaking Switzerland – energy-efficient renovation and conversion are becoming increasingly important
Switzerland has a high proportion of old properties, some of which have a protected status. They need to be adapted to modern requirements and updated to be more energy efficient. Jens Vollmar, Head of the Buildings Division at Implenia: “The preservation and protection of buildings is a top priority in Switzerland. However, these buildings still need to be used and operated economically and sustainably. With a strong focus on sustainability, Implenia brings many years of experience and comprehensive skills to the renovation of existing buildings in accordance with customer requirements.”

Implenia recently won four large, complex modernization projects in German-speaking and French-speaking Switzerland. A request has been made to renovate the listed Draisine Hall (formerly the Swiss Locomotive and Machinery Factory), including kindergarten and primary school, at the Lokstadt site in Winterthur. The project, commissioned by the owner Ina Invest, includes construction work and wooden construction. On Dornacherstrasse in Basel, Division Buildings is renovating an occupied residential building on behalf of a major Swiss bank. In Cugy (Canton of Vaud), Implenia was commissioned by the same bank to undertake the complete renovation of a large development according to Minergie standards. Implenia is also modernizing three occupied residential buildings on rue de Beaumont in Geneva on behalf of two real estate companies. These four modernization contracts represent a total of more than 55 million francs.
