Conversion school and residence "Gute Herberge" in Riehen

Since the summer of 2018, the more than 100-year-old building in the canton of Basel-Stadt has been extensively rebuilt and modernised. We were able to plan the seismic retrofitting and accompany the implementation on site. To strengthen the entire support structure, the roof slab acts as a diaphragm and is connected to the masonry walls.

On 27.9.2018 the SIA Zurich hosted a Pecha Kucha evening where aspiring and young members talked about the way they perceive, use and develop materials.  At this exciting event, Giuseppe Morlino talked about how materials are handled from an engineer's point of view.


Floor slab Bau 2 completed

On 22.08.2018 the floor slab of Bau 2 was completed on schedule. Due to the partial dig-and-cast construction method, most of the exterior walls in sub-basement 2 could already be erected independently. The work on the exterior walls in sub-basement 3 is also progressing steadily. The first phase of the eastern of the two cores is also well advanced, so that the installation of the climbing formwork can begin soon.
