Vision and reality

The detailed energy balance sheet, construction budget and running costs for the Forum Chriesbach development were the primary focus of a conference in Dübendorf, attended by around 140 people. The Eawag main building designed by Bob Gysin + Partner BGP went into operation in June 2006 and has since been hailed as a pioneering energy milestone. The clients' brief on sustainability was implemented in an exemplary manner and not only with regard to energy efficiency in the stricter sense of the term: ecological, social and economic factors were also taken into account.

Monitoring of the Forum Chriesbach's first two years in operation has clearly demonstrated that the building functions as anticipated and that investments are already showing midterm returns.

Bob Gysin of BGP delivered a lecture at the conference on 'All One Can Envisage: Will It Really Be Done?'
