Headquartered in Zug, Switzerland, Smart Infrastructure at Siemens intelligently connects energy systems, buildings and industries, enhancing the way people live and work to significantly improve efficiency and sustainability.
In May 2016, construction works started on the new Siemens Campus in Zug. From the beginning, it was clear that the consolidated site and the new buildings would have to contribute to Siemens’ overall goal to become climate neutral by 2030. Furthermore, aside from being an example of best environmental practice, the campus would also be a technological beacon. And if that isn’t enough, the company also wanted to create a space that could be adapted to new forms of work.
Next to the new campus building measuring 18,400 square metre over seven stories is a new three-story-high production hall. From 2021 on, an existing office building at the site will also be refurbished.
Efficient heat pumps and water from Lake Zug are used for cooling and heating of the building and photovoltaic installations provide electricity, with vegetated rooftops providing an extra layer of insulation. Optimal room comfort is ensured with advanced cooling and space conditioning capacities and LED lighting solutions. An integrated building automation system including energy optimisation based on Desigo CC integrated building management platform has also been installed. Additionally, a sustainable waste management concept has been created for the entire campus.
