A perfect place to work

The new Siemens Campus in Zug, Switzerland

Headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, Siemens Building Technologies is a leading provider of automation technologies and services for commercial, industrial and public buildings and infrastructures across their entire lifecycle. It is not just a showcase for the company’s solutions, but also for what buildings make possible today.

Requirements

In May 2016, construction works started on the new Siemens Campus in Zug. From the beginning it was clear that the consolidated site and the new buildings would have to contribute to Siemens’ overall goal to become climate neutral by 2030. Furthermore, aside from being an example of best environmental practice, the campus would also be a technological beacon. And if that isn’t enough, the company also wanted to create a space that could be adapted to new forms of work.

Solution

Next to the new campus building measuring 18,400 m2 over seven stories is a new three-story-high production hall. From 2021 on, an existing office building at the site will also be refurbished.

 

Efficient heat pumps and water from Lake Zug are used for cooling and heating. Photovoltaic installations provide electricity, with vegetated rooftops providing an extra layer of insulation. A sustainable waste management concept has been created for the entire campus. The flexible workplace design in the new offices features an open office landscape that promotes mobile working. Optimal room comfort is ensured with advanced cooling and space conditioning capacities and LED lighting solutions. An integrated building automation system including energy optimization based on Desigo CC integrated building management platform has also been installed.

 

As a model of technology, the campus is one of the first Siemens construction projects to use Building Information Modeling (BIM). BIM is based on a digital twin of the site. Among others it simulates the course of a construction project and uses data to measure and improve processes. While the initial planning effort is greater with BIM, implementation on the construction site is smoother because BIM provides for maximum coordination. The digital data created with BIM was even employed to give virtual tours through the site using virtual reality goggles. Since the reconstructed campus open its doors in mid-2018, the BIM data is being used for building maintenance.

 

The latest products for ventilation and heating control, video surveillance and fire protection were installed in the new control center – with space for additional installations. That way, Siemens Building Technologies will also be able to install even newer products and test them during operation.

Benefits

Siemens Business Technologies shines in its efforts: the campus is a showcase for BIM, fire detection, access and intrusion control, CCTV, CO detection, extinguishing, voice evacuation, HVAC automation, room automation and CPS field devices.

 

LEED Platinum has been issued for the office building and LEED Gold for the production building. And both buildings have earned the Swiss Minergie label that focuses on the building shell and energy consumption.
