The Branch is the place where the integration of the real estate world is being driven forward. New processes in the construction and real estate industry change here from the aggregate state "idea" to "action". Formats such as Collab and Talks also create a dialogue platform for interested parties and a stimulating place for cooperation – across traditional boundaries within the real estate industry.www.thebranch.ch

Business Development, Developments, Global Services and Renovations are company business units that focus on the design and implementation of development projects designed for all kinds of purposes and involving total investments on any scale.
Halter has around 260 employees in Zurich, Bern, Basel, Lucerne, Lausanne and St. Gallen. Controlling shares in the company are held by Chairman of the Board Balz Halter, CEO Markus Mettler and other members of staff. The way we think and act is geared to identifying and activating the development potential of individual plots of land, construction projects or properties. From this we generate value. For our clients and ourselves.
Mission and values
Halter's corporate culture, formed as it is by values such as entrepreneurship, innovation and sustainability, provides the foundation for an organization that is agile and highly effective. People before structures: our employees represent Halter to the outside world independently of the corporate structure and are thus able to act in the best interests of both client and project at all times.
An entrepreneurial spirit, leadership and partnership lie at the heart of our customer relationships. Our competence and conscientiousness are reflected in the success of our clients, principals and partners Cultivation of an entrepreneurial mindset and promotion of it in our business environment is our top priority.
Innovation leads to a higher quality of life and better use of the built environment, as well as productivity increases. This requires collaboration both internally and externally, broad-based expertise throughout the entire life cycle of a property, and an open and inquisitive corporate culture that form the basis for consistent and continuous improvement of our products and processes.
We fully embrace the notion of sustainability and seek to find long-term solutions. To that end, we follow a circular-economy model and aim for sustainability in a transparent way. We back sensible architecture and well-planned urban development, achieve long-term profitability for investors and make the most of (digital) technology to deliver energy-efficient and environmentally friendly solutions.
Halter's four corporate business units are Business Development, Global Services, Renovations and Developments, but for specific assignments involving real estate and technology-related services, Halter also works on an individual project basis with its subsidiaries. However, the affiliated companies operate independently within their own sectors.
