Civil engineering works Clinic 2 at Basel University Hospital

Civil engineering work began in April and the extent of the four-storey excavation pit can already be seen. The large drilling rigs are constructing the bored pile walls close to the existing building, which is a major challenge while the hospital is still in operation. Many thanks to the prudent employees of the contractors on site and the site management. The planners are pleased that the work is progressing smoothly and on schedule.

Building application submitted

On March 12, 2024, we were able to submit the building application for the new Graubünden University of Applied Sciences Center. On site, construction profiles are now rising into the light blue spring sky of Chur. At the same time, the first preparatory work is already underway, such as the rerouting of the Mühlbach creek south of Pulvermühlestrasse and the demolition of the existing buildings on the site. Construction is scheduled to start at the beginning of 2025. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the client, the Graubünden Building Authority, the users of the Graubünden University of Applied Sciences and, last but not least, all the members of the entire general planning team for their good cooperation. We look forward to the next steps in the project development.

Ground-breaking for new Clinic 2 building Basel

The public, two-stage competition was decided in 2013. After more than 10 years of planning, the official ground-breaking took place on 22 January 2024 for the new Clinic 2 building at the University Hospital Basel. With this important act, the client sees the start of a generational project. We look forward with the client to the upcoming realisation of phase 1, which will last until 2030.
