"In line with our group strategy - intelligent growth for sustainable success - we have succeeded in entering the market in Western Switzerland. We are now represented throughout Switzerland and have thus reached an important milestone," emphasises Hubert Seifert, CEO of PORR SUISSE AG.
In the four- and five-storey residential buildings with a floor area of 7,330 m², a total of 70 residential units have been created with different living forms and standards. From lofts for flexible use to family flats and attractive attic flats with generous loggias, the Parc du Simplon allows for a variety of living forms. The project's two underground garages extend over almost the entire site and are accessed via each of the four buildings. The garages have a total of 110 parking spaces for cars and 25 motorbikes. Heat is generated by connecting to the local district heating system. In addition to reduced CO2 emissions and reduced maintenance costs, the future users benefit from year-round comfort and particularly easy operation.
Attractive avant-garde district with industrial character
The apartment buildings are located only a few minutes' walk from the centre of Renens and captivate with their glazed ceramic facades in green, yellow, blue and red. In order to give the former industrial site a contemporary use and at the same time preserve the industrial character architecturally, a conscious decision was made to use horizontal formats for the window subdivisions as well as robust and simple materials. The DGNB certificate according to SGNI at Gold level underscores the high standards of execution from a single source.
