Certificates for sustainable real estate
HIAG’s real estate programmes meet stringent criteria for sustainable building as well as comfort and spatial quality. At the Kunzareal site in Windisch, the Spinnerkönig and Feinspinnerei buildings meet the Minergie standard and the Spinnerei III loft building has the second best building energy certificate in the canton with its GEAK B certificate, which classifies energy efficiency of the building shell as well as the building’s energy requirements during standard use. In addition, at the innovative “The Hive” business campus in Meyrin, the Hive 1 and Hive 2 properties have both obtained the Minergie certificate.
