Site development / sustainable construction

The creation of economically, socially and ecologically sustainable housing and work areas represents a major challenge for the regions, cities and municipalities of Switzerland. In view of the tensions arising from location competition and environmental, energy and climate policies as well as tight public finances and heterogeneous stakeholder interests, econcept is committed to a transformation towards sustainable regional development and sustainable building and infrastructure parks. To this end, we are researching new approaches and sustainable strategies in the field of construction and helping public and private institutions to develop, implement and evaluate programmes, measures and instruments. An important foundation to this work is the thorough analysis of the motives and behaviour of the stakeholders.

We support decision-makers in sustainable development by their municipalities, cities, regions and cantons as well as infrastructure parks and real estate by analysing and monitoring strategic processes. With our expertise in regional and agglomeration policies, we also advise the federal government, cantons and regions on how to design, coordinate and evaluate the promotion efforts for their location.

We have extensive knowledge and established methods for sustainability assessments, which we use for individual buildings, infrastructure systems and projects relevant to spatial planning. With our methodical knowledge and our practical experience, we also help our clients to set up reporting and controlling systems for sustainable development.

We see intelligently constructed buildings and buildings renovated with the future in mind as a key driver of sustainable development. We advise public and private institutions on how to develop measures and programmes to promote sustainable construction and management of buildings and on how to evaluate these. We also develop concepts and tools for sustainable and cost-optimised renewal work using quantitative and qualitative methods.

As part of our international cooperation work, we conduct research into new concepts for the cost-efficient increase of energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy in buildings. In doing so, we take account of technical, economic, spatial-planning and socio-political considerations.
