Losinger

Losinger Marazzi, a Swiss subsidiary of Bouygues Construction, will design and build a new LimmiViva hospital in the town of Schlieren, near Zurich.

The Spitalverband Limmattal hospital group’s new facility will be developed with an investment of €175m.

Bouygues Entreprises France-Europe CEO Pascal Minault said: "This contract illustrates our development in the healthcare sector in Switzerland, where investments of some €20bn are expected over the next 15 years.

"The new facility will feature a car park and technical facilities on two basement levels, a restaurant, administrative offices, laboratories, x-ray facilities, five operating theatres, an A&E department and a maternity unit."

"Losinger Marazzi is benefiting from the expertise of the Bouygues Construction Group, which has completed dozens of hospital projects in recent years in France, the United Kingdom, Canada and other countries."

The project will involve the construction of an eight-storey building with 50,000m² of space that can accommodate 200 beds.

The new facility will feature a car park and technical facilities on two basement levels, a restaurant, administrative offices, laboratories, x-ray facilities, five operating theatres, an A&E department and a maternity unit.

According to Bouygues Construction, the project is a first in the country that is being developed with the use of building information modelling (BIM).

The company will begin the fitting out phase of the project in the third quarter of 2016. The facility is expected to become operational in 2018.

Losinger Marazzi’s other projects in the country include GreenCity in Zurich, Erlenmatt in Basel and Im Lenz in Lenzburg.
