Strabag’s Swiss subsidiary has secured an €100M contract for the construction of an office building and a production building for Siemens in Zug, Switzerland.
The contract, awarded by Siemens Real Estate, will be executed on a design and build basis with Strabag AG Switzerland serving as the main contractor for the project.
The office building will be constructed using building information modelling (BIM), which guarantees a level of security in terms of cost, design and scheduling.
The seven-storey facility will offer 31,700sq m of space on every floor for mechanical/electrical, seminar and conference rooms, as well as an underground car park.
The four-storey production building will include production halls, laboratories and offices on 24,000sq m of floor area. An automated transport and storage system will be included on the basement level.
STRABAG’s CEO Thomas Birtel said: “BIM.5D is the future of building. The aim of BIM is to digitally collect, combine and link all relevant data associated with the entire building lifecycle. This creates a building data model that basically is a giant synchronised database.
“The model simulates for all involved how the building will change as construction progresses, which materials will be required in which quantities at what time, and what consequences could arise from late changes to the design.”
Both buildings are to be completed in June 2018.
