At the heart of Zurich's District 4 lies the administrative and operations centre of the St. Jakob Disability Foundation. In order to offer its over 400 employees a modern working environment, the Foundation will move into a new operations centre in Viaduktstrasse in spring 2018 while its historic headquarters undergo a complete refurbishment. Within a period of about 13 months, the building will be repurposed to make a sustainable investment property with around 22 apartments. Apart from extensive and flexibly customizable commercial space, the ground floor will have room for cafés, restaurants and retail premises. By involving Halter Inc. at an early stage, from the building project phase onward, the client has benefited from various significant improvements.
