Company Information

STRABAG AG Switzerland, a subsidiary of STRABAG SE, has been awarded the
contract to build an office building and a production building for Siemens in
Zug, Switzerland. The contract, which has a value of around EUR 100 million,
will be carried out by STRABAG as design-and-build contractor and main
contractor, respectively. The client, Siemens Real Estate, chose STRABAG also
for its proven competence in Building Information Modelling (BIM).

"We are proud to be able to prove our know-how with this project in Switzerland
in order to meet the high expectations of the client and the future user
Siemens Building Technologies. BIM.5D® is the future of building. The aim of
BIM is to digitally collect, combine and link all relevant data associated with
the entire building lifecycle. This creates a building data model that
basically is a giant synchronised database. Besides the geometric data, i.e. a
3D model of the building, BIM also includes non-geometric data such as detailed
information regarding materials, costs or the programme of works. The model
simulates for all involved how the building will change as construction
progresses, which materials will be required in which quantities at what time,
and what consequences could arise from late changes to the design," explains
Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE. On the basis of this building data model,
BIM.5D® guarantees a level of security in terms of cost, design and scheduling
that has never before been seen in construction - and it does so at an early
stage in the process.

The design and construction of the office building will be managed by the
STRABAG project team, together with design and client representatives, during
regular meetings in the so-called "Big Room" on the Siemens construction site.
The seven-storey building will offer - in addition to the office space - 31,700
m² of space on every floor for mechanical/electrical, seminar and conference
rooms as well as an underground car park. The four-storey production building,
being built under a traditional main contractor model, will comprise production
halls, laboratories and offices on 24,000 m² of floor area. An automated
transport and storage system will be included on the basement level. Both
buildings are to be completed in June 2018. Following completion, Siemens will
continue to use the building data model in its facility management. BIM.5D®
therefore optimises not only the design and construction phases of a building,
but the operations phase as well.
