How to build for future mobility?
Implenia is building Sweden's longest tram bridge between Stockholm and the suburb of Lidingö. It runs 750 meters over an sea inlet and connects the island with the city center. The bridge is being built using industrially prefabricated formwork elements. They are assembled using a specially developed steel assembly truck. This construction method saves time and guarantees consistently high quality.
How do you revive an industrial wasteland?
In Neuchâtel, Implenia and Ina Invest are reviving an industrial wasteland. It's a site with a lot of history: Suchard produced chocolate and Sugus sweets in Serrières until the end of the 1980s. Now the new owners are developing the Tivoli site with a great deal of respect for the location and its residents: sustainably, with lots of green spaces, varied architecture, and the goal of social mixing.
How do you build a high-tech campus?
In Dübendorf, Implenia is building the perfect research environment for Empa and Eawag scientists. A lot of innovation has gone into creating this centre for innovation: from the low-vibration concrete structure for the laboratory building to the wood-concrete hybrid construction for the parking garage or an experimental geothermal probe field for heat storage - sustainably planned and built with the help of a digital BIM model.
“Not even the toilets are standard”
One thing is clear. If a Swiss research institution builds a new campus, no run-of-the-mill applications will be used. On the building site in Dübendorf, Implenia is teaming up with the client, the Eidgenössischen Materialprüfungs- und Forschungsanstalt (Empa, or Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology) to create innovative solutions.
