HIAG - Développement de sites sur le long terme. Jobs (1) Contact

Nous recherchons une valeur ajoutée utile

La taille de notre entreprise nous confère une souplesse tant dans la durée que sur le plan financier. Cela nous permet de conférer un soin particulier au redéveloppement de nos sites et de contribuer à ce que ces derniers s'intègrent toujours plus à leur environnement avec chaque étape du redéveloppement. 

Nous recherchons les locataires appropriés pour chaque site. Nous leur proposons les bases pour leur développement sur place. Le cas échéant, grâce à notre large offre de sites, nous sommes en mesure d'identifier de nouveaux lieux pour nos locataires.

Plus la valeur ajoutée est utile, et plus la valeur à long terme est sûre.

Nous développons les sites à long terme en intervenant dès l'élaboration des plans d'aménagement du territoire. Très en amont, HIAG recherche le dialogue avec la population locale et avec les services concernés – de la conservation des monuments historiques jusqu'aux autorités chargées de la planification et de la délivrance des permis de construire en passant par la protection de l'environnement et du paysage. À cela vient s'ajouter notre volonté d'être présents sur place du début à la fin des opérations.

Ainsi, nous trouvons la stratégie de redéveloppement qui convient et le business plan porteur sur le long terme. Cette conviction, ainsi que notre large portefeuille de sites industriels, constituent les principaux piliers de notre entreprise.

Strategy and Sustainability

 

Strategy

Site redevelopment, leasing and infrastructure recognised as value drivers

HIAG has several value drivers that work together to generate attractive overall returns for shareholders. Thanks to a diversified and high-quality group of tenants, the property portfolio provides stable and projectable income and therefore ensures the distribution of attractive dividends. The added value from site redevelopment comes from three core disciplines: architecture and planning processes, site and project sales as well as cost and process control. The added value created by the redevelopment process also expands the collateral value for financing new projects. The company thus manages to press ahead with further redevelopments in its own portfolio without significant additional capital requirements. HIAG invests in infrastructure wherever its integration at the site provides an economic or environmental benefit. For that reason, HIAG has five hydroelectric plants in its portfolio and invests in network development and cloud infrastructures. HIAG distinguishes itself from other market participants by combining the two complementary business models of site redevelopment and cloud infrastructure, fully drawing on the use of digital potential.

 

“Land bank” with redevelopment as a core business

The Group disposes of a site portfolio at about 40 locations that stretches over a total surface area of 2.5 million m2, 1.6 million m2 of which is zoned. In addition to its existing property portfolio, the company currently plans to establish 603’000 m² of additional usable area in roughly 50 redevelopment projects in the short, medium and long-term with an investment potential of approximately CHF 1.7 billion. This large “land bank” together with its impressive track record in site redevelopment, are important distinguishing features for the company. Furthermore, the portfolio provides a broad mix of uses, which, compared to other portfolios, presents a good balance between residential and industrial / commercial use and features a relatively low proportion of office space. HIAG’s sites are very well located. Approximately 91% of the portfolio is located in the economic core regions of Switzerland around Baden / Brugg, Zurich / Zug, Northwestern Switzerland and Geneva. The scarce land resources in these regions and the recent legally instituted reduction in rezoning of agricultural areas, highlight the need for consolidation and conversion of former industrial sites.


Performance, security and availability

While individuals use cloud solutions as a matter of course, at the end of 2017 only an estimated 5% of companies were cloud-native, and they were primarily young companies. An important reason why companies are hesitant to transfer system-critical processes to virtual locations is that the public internet as a means of communication was not designed for the transfer and availability of system-critical processes. That’s where HIAG Data comes in: with its private and dedicated network connections, it offers a path to cloud computing with at least as much security and availability as a private cloud at a company site, but with a significantly higher performance with regard to the connection to public clouds and virtual cloud infrastructure. With the offer of an end-to-end service level agreement, HIAG Data practically brings the cloud to the company, and via its partners enables a seamless connection to the existing IT infrastructure. For the company-owned virtual cloud infrastructure, which is operated from two data centres in Switzerland, HIAG Data can focus completely on the seamless integration of its own high performance network into the server architecture. This results in application-specific performance improvements that enable new business models. HIAG Data works closely with Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Enterprise to further develop its infrastructure, and serves its users exclusively via its cloud service partner network.


Focused on core processes

HIAG orients its strategic focus towards activities that create the most value during the redevelopment process. Core processes such as site acquisition, control of redevelopment processes, approval procedures, connection to the local infrastructure, portfolio management and sales activities are primarily carried out internally and can be continuously improved through an open, feedback-friendly culture. Building management is conducted by our own personnel at sites where HIAG deems it important to be close to the object; for example, in the case of redevelopment activities at sites with an industrial background. At the same time, the company also focuses heavily on the opportunities and usability of new technologies when designing uses, as well as in all core processes. Activities that are exposed to stiff competition, that have low margins or which are very work-intensive are outsourced. This includes, for example, architectural and technical planning, construction work and property management for yielding properties.


Employees as factors for success

HIAG’s corporate culture, which guides individual and overall development paths, is shaped by its highly qualified employees. Thanks to the flat organisational structure and the very high level of specialisation of most of its staff, each employee takes responsibility, makes decisions and is generally the direct contact person for his or her field of responsibility. Bearing in mind that every employee contributes to success, HIAG promotes initial and continuing training and discusses possible training opportunities during individual performance reviews. Between 2015 and 2017, six employees (out of a total of 33) completed HIAG-supported training courses and took advantage of education programmes, including multi-year study programmes and additional qualifications. The open exchange between employees and managers, which takes place regularly and sporadically, is promoted by HIAG’s corporate culture. This strong company ethos is characterised by trust, passion, the spirit of innovation, the courage to take the initiative and a strong team spirit. In order to promote employee satisfaction, HIAG always strives for reasonable work requirements, fair wages and a very attractive work environment at central locations in Basel, Geneva and Zurich.


Added value through brand management

Thanks to the long-term, consistent, value-based actions of our site developers, the company and the HIAG umbrella brand have gained the valuable trust of important local stakeholders, such as tenants, residents and municipal authorities. This presence interacts with site and project brands. Site brands persist in the long term and are therefore deployed strategically for their identity-creating dimensions. Project brands, on the other hand, are limited in time and primarily serve sales, but also often remain visible as a reference after the completion of a project. It is important to communicate transparently and consistently about the redevelopment service rendered in order to credibly fill HIAG’s brands with relevant content. The perception of the HIAG brand environment can be realistically assessed through personal dialogue with stakeholders. The impressions that are gathered are integrated in the decision-making process on the sites’ strategic focus during the Executive Board’s strategy meetings, which take place several times per year. The subsidiary brand HIAG Data has an explicit relationship with the HIAG brand, while maintaining a completely independent image and communication mix. The communication policies of both brands are considered and implemented in an integrated manner.


Sustainability

In Switzerland, land is scarce and requires sustainable use in economic, social and environmental terms. As a long-term owner, HIAG is therefore geared towards ensuring the long-term quality of newly created neighbourhoods and the care of its sites, areas and infrastructures. The main challenge is recognising the identity and “soul” of a site and transposing it so that it remains at the heart of the future quarter and results in careful management of space for life.

 

Environmental sustainability

Hydroelectric power

Some of HIAG’s sites are located on rivers that were important energy sources for former industrial operations and can still be used today as renewable energy sources for electricity production. At three sites in the Zurich highlands, in Biberist and in Diesbach, five small hydroelectric plants with a cumulative maximum output of 1’810 kW produced a total of approximately 7’352’303 kWh of electricity in 2017. This roughly corresponds to the average annual energy requirements of approximately 1’838 two-person households with four rooms. For hydroelectric power to be used for electricity production over a long period of time, the hydroelectric plants must always be in a condition that allows them to be operated efficiently.

HIAG’s aim is to use the potential of the hydroelectric plants to the fullest possible extent. However, annual production is strongly dependent on the amount of water that is available. Another important factor is the reliability of the plants, which has been optimised by the repair work carried out by HIAG. The following table shows an overview of the annual production of all the plants in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017:

Annual production of all hydroelectric plants in kWh

In Aathal (ZH), the hydroelectric issue is important both to the canton and the historic preservation office. Three of the 12 power plants in the hydroelectric power chain that stretches through the region should receive renovation subsidies from the canton in the medium term, based on a concept drafted by HIAG. These protected energy sources will therefore be maintained according to historic preservation principles. In the future, HIAG will therefore be able to operate the three hydroelectric plants in Aathal economically and in the long term.

 

Photovoltaic facility

At the Kunzareal site, HIAG built one of the largest photovoltaic facilities in the Windisch-Brugg region on the roof of the recruitment centre. In 2017, the 794 modules with a surface area of about 1’300 m² generated over 183 MWh of electricity. Thanks to this facility, approximately 664 tons of CO2 emissions had been avoided as at the end of 2017.

Annual production of photovoltaic in MWh

The plant is characterised by the aerodynamically optimised elevation system, which aims to integrate the modules discreetly into the overall picture of the building and the outside areas of the quarter. The system was built by Solventure AG and the University of Applied Sciences of North-West Switzerland in Windisch.

 

Energy standards

When creating apartment projects, HIAG pays attention to the careful use of resources and seeks to bring together the requirements of the future resident and those of certification. Minergie-certified projects in the HIAG portfolio include Spinnerkönig with 61 rental units, The Cloud with 100 condominiums and Feinspinnerei, which will be ready for delivery in 2018, with 29 condominiums. The EMEA headquarters of Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and HP Inc., which opened in 2017 in Meyrin, Geneva and is used as an office building, is Minergie-certified and has also received LEED certification.

 

Company mobility

HIAG promotes the environmentally friendly use of public transport by employees and deliberately avoids the use of a fleet of vehicles. Employees who need to travel frequently receive general or half-fare transport passes. In addition, all employees have access to Mobility Carsharing and can flexibly plan their business trips throughout Switzerland. Mobility vehicles have even been stationed at the HIAG site in Windisch. Employees who often travel by train or who work at different sites receive mobile technical equipment accordingly.

 

Social sustainability

Quality in architecture and urban planning

For HIAG, sustainable site redevelopment means the careful and forward-looking planning of future quarters. In order to ensure urban and architectural quality, HIAG organises architectural competitions and master planning in the initial part of its redevelopment service. This often takes place in stages, so that the technical quality of the contributions can be further condensed step by step. Holistic urban planning takes into account social and ecological aspects and thus expands the development potential of the sites. Urban planning leads to the consideration of development aspects, such as type of use, accessibility to transport systems and landscaping, and ensures that individual projects work out ideally in the overall context of a site. This approach also provides for a healthy mix and a positive social climate to shape life in the quarter. Progress was made with the test planning for the Dornach site in 2017, for example. During the interim meeting, the jury members were able to give constructive feedback and develop solutions for complex redevelopment issues in collaboration with the participating architecture firms.


Cooperation with educational institutions

HIAG maintains exchanges with educational and research institutions. Through cooperation with universities, HIAG supports projects that are related to actual tasks in the context of site redevelopment. Students are given the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice, allowing HIAG to gain new perspectives on its development activity.

In this context, cooperation with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich in the field of architecture and Lucerne University in the field of interior design has taken place in recent years. In 2017, a student project with the University of Applied Sciences of North-West Switzerland in the degree programme of electrical and environmental technology was initiated and largely implemented. The students’ task was to conduct a market analysis on the need for energy infrastructure using the example of the Papieri site in Biberist. The results will be presented at the beginning of 2018. HIAG is also committed to transmitting knowledge about site redevelopment: Several employees are working as guest lecturers covering specific specialist topics at educational institutions; for example, at the University of Zurich and Lucerne University.


Economic sustainability

A focus on client needs

HIAG’s clients benefit from an organisation with flat hierarchies and short decision paths. Direct communication with contact persons who have decision-making authority provides fast and reliable answers. HIAG’s clients include public, private and commercial tenants, companies and condominium buyers. From the first contact until the signing of the contract and beyond, they are looked after by our contact persons. Wherever condominiums are sold at a site, the buyers immediately become HIAG’s future neighbours there. Trust-based dialogue with the client is therefore at the forefront of sales activities.


A partner for the Swiss workplace

Site redevelopment also entails the development of the Swiss workplace. HIAG’s commercial tenants include well-known, major corporations and brands such as ABB, Media Markt, HP Inc., Hewlett-Packard Enterprise and Jeld-Wen. HIAG’s portfolio management maintains close relationships with industrial and commercial tenants and benefits from its own industrial heritage when working with industrial tenants. Proximity builds understanding and know-how for company-specific requirements, as proven, for example, by the highly efficient construction of Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP Inc.’s EMEA headquarters, which opened in 2017. This mutual understanding was also beneficial during the construction of the new Jeld-Wen industrial halls, which were swiftly built within the given budget and completed in 2017. Since a large portion of the sites in HIAG’s portfolio were used industrially in the past, most of them are very well connected. HIAG’s tenants can therefore offer their employees a short commute and good connections to public transport. This allows better use of municipal infrastructure. The project always takes on a special quality when all of the parties involved in the redevelopment identify with it. If a suitable range of services is available, HIAG tries to consider local businesses first for site redevelopment. The sites are also largely managed in collaboration with local service providers that implement the philosophy of individual and dialogue-oriented tenant care as HIAG envisions it.

The 100% HIAG subsidiary HIAG Data acts within a global ecosystem in which existing and potential partners and customers cross-connect in a meaningful way. HIAG Data’s cloud infrastructure and specific branch solutions enable smaller businesses to develop new cloud-based business models and benefit from the high performance, security and availability of the HIAG Data solution. HIAG Data therefore acts as a sustainable infrastructure partner, allowing its customers to make specific use of digitisation opportunities.

Vision Aathal

Vision Aathal

Superficie du site: 228'000 m²

Surface utile: 31'000 m²

Responsable: Thorsten Eberle

 

HIAG développe progressivement le potentiel des anciens sites de filature à Aathal (ZH) avec leurs terrains attenants. Ainsi, la région toute entière s'en trouve revalorisée. À l'aide d'un plan directeur, une vision urbaine et architecturale pour certaines parties du site ainsi que pour son ensemble est en train de voir le jour. Cette vision constitue la base du dialogue avec les architectes, les autorités et la population. Pour donner à la valeur ajoutée un sens à long terme, chaque étape du redéveloppement constitue la base pour l'étape suivante. Le projet Leuchtturm (maintenant Spinnerei Aathal), au cœur de l'Aathal, constitue le prélude de cette approche. En 2013, les premiers locataires ont aménagé dans le bâtiment transformé et classé.


Kunzareal

Kunzareal

Superficie du site: 48'000 m²

Surface utile: 38'000 m²

Responsable: Alex Römer

 

La Kunzareal à Windisch (AG) fut jadis l'un des plus grands sites de filature en Suisse. Aujourd'hui, il s'agit d'un quartier mixte qui accueille logements et bureaux dans un environnement naturel. Le patrimoine classé apporte le charme unique d'un lieu de mémoire industrielle. Plutôt qu'une construction supplémentaire, une nouvelle place de quartier invite les habitants à s'y attarder et à sympathiser. En plus des qualités sociales du projet, une grande attention a été accordée à l'efficacité énergétique des bâtiments ainsi qu'à l'utilisation d'énergies renouvelables (hydraulique et photovoltaïque). Une pompe à chaleur sur nappe phréatique fournit au site l’énergie de chauffage primaire. Le nouveau quartier fournira un logement à 500 personnes et en emploiera environ 200. 


Industriepark Klingnau/Kleindöttingen

Industriepark Klingnau/Kleindöttingen

Superficie du site: 204'000 m²

Surface utile: 186'000 m²

Responsable: Lukas Fehr

 

Dans la région de Brugg-Zurzach (AG) aussi, HIAG écrit un nouveau chapitre de l'histoire industrielle. Après des dizaines d'années de transformation industrielle du bois à Kleindöttingen (rive gauche de l'Aar) et à Klingnau (rive droite de l'Aar), les locataires actuels sont issus de différents secteurs. Depuis de nombreuses années, HIAG prend soin de ce site et continue à le développer. Les relations durables avec la commune et avec les locataires industriels y ont sensiblement contribué. Dernièrement, en 2011-2012, le projet Newport avec 13 halles industrielles multifonctions a vu le jour. En plus d'un grand nombre d'autres locataires de renom, ABB Suisse a déjà installé trois de ses activités sur le site de Kleindöttingen et y emploie environ 150 collaborateurs.
