S+B Baumanagement as total contractor for new buildings Erection of Apartment Houses Alma and Frame to start in July 2020
May 26, 2020
Construction is scheduled to start in July 2020. The construction cost of the two buildings is in the double-digit million range.
"We are looking forward to working with ASA as a client, and I am personally looking forward to realising this exciting project in Andermatt, in my home canton," says Patrick Zwyssig, partner and managing director of S+B Baumanagement AG. He cites the accelerated schedule and the fact that the company's first construction project in Andermatt is at an altitude of over 1,400 m above sea level as particular challenges. S+B Baumanagement is well known for their execution of various construction projects on the Suurstoffi site in Rotkreuz such as the Aglaya garden tower or the expansion and rehabilitation of Schindler Campus Ebikon. S+B is also leading the Roche pRED Innovation Center project in Basel as construction manager in the SB+IB planning consortium with Itten+Brechbühl AG.
Raphael Krucker, CEO of Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, is pleased with the collaboration with S+B: "In addition to our existing and loyal partners in Andermatt, this new cooperation strengthens our vision to further develop Andermatt as "The Prime Alpine Destination".
Apartment Houses Alma and Frame appeal to different target groups. Alma is located on the western edge of Andermatt Reuss, and with its dark wooden façade it fits in perfectly with the neighbouring buildings. The elevator provides direct entry into the apartments. The interior fit-out is exclusive and each apartment has large picture windows offering views of the Bäzberg and the Reuss. Lightcoloured floors, dark wood panelling combined with natural-tone clay finish plaster and a spacious living area complete the picture. Communal spaces include the entrance area with seating, the sauna and the wellness area.
The concept of Apartment House Frame is smart and well thought out. Smaller units are configured in a star pattern around the staircase to provide optimum daylight. A multifunctional element in each apartment accommodates the sleeping space, bathroom, kitchen and storage all in one. The raised ceiling gives the room a spacious feeling. The predominant materials are wood, steel and glass. The impressive living area features large windows and an oriel with settee that can be converted into a guest bed. On the garden floor is a sauna and a communal room for relaxing and socialising.
Andermatt Swiss Alps AG
From vision to destination: During the past several years, Andermatt has developed into a popular year-round holiday resort with numerous attractive features: apartment buildings, hotels and chalets, a Scottish-style 18-hole golf course that offers golfers a welcome challenge, and the SkiArena, not only one of the most modern ski regions in Switzerland but also the largest in Central Switzerland, with pistes from Andermatt to Sedrun and Disentis. With its perfect blend of alpine simplicity and urban sophistication, the five-star deluxe hotel The Chedi Andermatt exudes a special magic, as does the Radisson Blu Hotel Reussen, with its public indoor pool and wellness-and-fitness area. More apartment buildings and hotels will be built in the forthcoming years.
