A new standard at the best location
The coordination between project managers and developers, architects, builders and SGS SA, which accompanies the certification process according to SNBS, lies in the hands of Jan Rüegg, project manager for sustainability at Wincasa (right).
But why specifically SNBS? There are other established sustainability certifications such as Minergie or LEED. «Firstly, SNBS is a Swiss certification that is based on Swiss law», explains Jan Rüegg. «In addition, other certifications concentrate solely on energy consumption and the building envelope. Swiss Prime Site Immobilien wanted a holistic approach and thus decided to go with SNBS.» Jean Megow nods and adds: «The whole area is already Minergie certified. We’re now adding another comprehensive certification.»
Achieve more than others. This aspiration is characteristic of Swiss Prime Site Immobilien. And which city could possibly be better for making a statement about worldwide climate policy than Geneva, the European headquarters of the United Nations? A statement that is 16 storeys high and SNBS certified.
