UBS Rhône: "Bilan de l’Immobilier" Real Estate Prize

Published on 05.10.2016

The rebuilt and renovated UBS site located at 8 rue du Rhône in downtown Geneva has won the "Bilan de l’Immobilier" prize for 2016 in the category "commercial and/or administrative building". BG participated very actively and "sustainably" in this project designed by the architecture firm Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés and built by the general contractor Marti Construction SA.

Commissioned to design and engineer the HVAC and energy systems, BG provided expert solutions in the area of renewable energy production. With the stated goal of designing a Minergie-certified site producing zero CO2 without sacrificing comfort, BG went to great lengths to develop systems using the water of the Rhone as a source of energy to supply all heating, cooling and hot water needs, both in winter and summer. BG worked on the entire core and shell of the building, as well as on tenant build-outs.

The UBS Rhône site is composed of five buildings, featuring shops, offices and a restaurant. This exceptional project is truly an urban centrepiece with courtyards, malls and walkways for everyone to enjoy. The project is also exceptional in magnitude, with 25 000 m2 and a construction budget of 80 MCHF.

BG was involved from the competition phase onward, in a multidisciplinary team, and provided its expertise to ensure the success of this venture. Awarded jointly by the French-language business magazine Bilan and the Swiss real estate association SVIT Romandie, the "Bilan de l’Immobilier" prizes are conferred in nine categories. Evaluation criteria include the integration of the site, environmental responsibility, functionality, financial performance, and the architectural, technical and social qualities. Winner in the category "commercial and/or administrative building", UBS Rhône, designed by the Lausanne architecture firm Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés, was awarded the prize on September 13, 2016 at the Palais de l'Athénée in Geneva.

We would like to thank our client, UBS, for their confidence, Richter Dahl Rocha & Associés for an exceptional design, and the general contractor Marti for the quality of their performance.
