dedicated to the region

Built in 1975, the build­ing was used by the cli­ent for of­fices. The old struc­ture, with the ex­cep­tion of its found­a­tions, will give way to a new build­ing with high en­vir­on­ment­al stand­ards and sus­tain­able con­struc­tion. Its po­s­i­tion­ing as a 3* su­per­i­or hotel mainly fea­tur­ing fam­ily rooms will bring added value to Lu­cerne and the up-and-com­ing local area. Nice! We were able to as­sist with the final stages of the tender for the op­er­at­or and man­age the in­teri­or design com­pet­i­tion through to the award stage. The cli­ent has also re-en­gaged us due to cost over­runs and to as­sist with IT in­fra­struc­ture. Tricky tasks? Yes please! We find solu­tions. Ana­lyt­ic­al, prag­mat­ic, even un­con­ven­tion­al where re­quired.

the biggest challenge

The on-and-off nature of this project. Our work is flexible. As a client consultant, we are involved on an hourly basis and continually adapt to the current circumstances. This is time-consuming, as we have to keep reacquainting ourselves with the situation. For the operator tender, we supported one operator's concept, but this was not considered for the shortlist. What’s next? Exciting stuff is still to come!
