On 26 September, outstanding real estate projects were awarded the renowned 'Prix de l'immobilier romand' in Morges (VD). The headquarters of the Swiss electrical sensor manufacturer LEM, customised by HIAG, won 1st place in the 'Industrial Buildings' category.

With the support of the architects CCHE and Itten+Brechbühl, HIAG realised a headquarters for LEM on the technology campus 'The Hive' in Meyrin, Canton Geneva, that is tailored to their needs. Since the beginning of 2022, this has combined LEM's administration, development, research and production on an area of around 7,500 m². The corresponding building, 'The Hive8', was awarded first place in the 'Prix de l'immobilier romand' by a jury of experts in the 'Industrial Buildings' category.

"We are very pleased to receive this award and it is a nice confirmation of HIAG's broad expertise: from planning to realisation to operation of first-class mixed-use industrial buildings," says Patrick Japhet, Head of HIAG Romandie. "It is also a confirmation that industrial sites should be developed with a sustainable and long-term perspective and with a strong focus on our tenants. The technology campus 'The Hive' is an ideal example of this", Patrick Japhet adds further.

The 'Prix de l'immobilier romand' was launched in 2011 by the Swiss business magazine Bilanz and has been organised since 2016 in collaboration with the French-speaking Switzerland section of the Swiss Real Estate Association SVIT.
