» 31.08.2015 | Swiss Post headquarters awarded top sustainability certificate |

Outstanding sustainability performance

The Swiss Post has moved into its new headquarters in Berne’s WankdorfCity district. The office building is the first of its kind to be certified not only according to the national MINERGIE Standard, but also having received the German Sustainable Building Council’s top level recognition, DGNB gold, thus fulfilling both labels’ stringent sustainability requirements. The building features high levels of energy efficiency while providing multi-functional workspaces for some 2,000 employees.

Seamless sustainability
The sustainable use of resources has been among the Swiss Post’s key values for many years. General contractor Losinger Marazzi was thus assigned to plan and construct a building that would meet both the requirements of the Swiss MINERGIE Standard as well as the German DGNB label. The DGNB scheme recognizes buildings and urban districts fulfilling stringent sustainability criteria with regard to their technological, functional, ecological and economic performance as well as their planning, construction and execution processes. The Swiss Post headquarters was awarded with the DGNB’s top sustainability recognition, the DGNB gold certificate. Intep in charge of DGNB certification. Intep Zurich was involved in the project from the very beginning, with Intep partner and DGNB Senior Auditor Thomas Rühle overseeing the DGNB certification process. The entire project team is proud of this outstanding result.
