Enabling the construction of an avant-garde complex integrating two towers into a project of ecological excellence? Creating a 117-metre high tower that looks like a vertical forest? For us at NFIC, this is exactly the kind of challenge we thrive on: giving shape to ideas whose constraints seem insurmountable at first. Discover the next technical challenges that we will be orchestrating.
Imagine a sustainable complex integrating two astonishing towers of 19 and 24 floors respectively. This future eco-district aims to meet the criteria of a particularly demanding environmental certification: the Minergie-Eco label. Each building will be energy self-sufficient. With a planned budget of 200 million Swiss francs, the five buildings of Malley-Central will include 200 apartments, offices and shops. Managed by CFF Immobilier, these buildings only a few minutes from the centre of Lausanne are destined to become an attractive location for visitors, shoppers and residents alike.
Located in Chavannes-près-Renens, this neighbourhood will feature a tower covered in vegetation. Named “Les terrasses des Cèdres” and providing 195 apartments, the object is designed by the Milanese architect Stefano Boeri and built in a consortium with Ingeni SA in Lausanne. Its particularity? 80 trees and nearly 3000 m2 of shrubs and plants will enliven the facades of this contemporary-style building. The total budget amounts to 200 million Swiss francs.
We welcomed six girls aged between 10 and 12 during the ‘’Journée Oser Tous les Métiers’’ (JOM) on Thursday, November 9th, 2023. This atelier allows girls to learn more about technical jobs through activities, presentations, and visits of construction sites. This workshop enables girls to learn more about technical professions through activities, presentations, and construction site visits.
Commissioned by the municipality of Echandens, NFIC has just won the study and implementation phase of the future school complex in Echandens (VD), a project developed by the Geneva-based architectural firm dl-c designlab-construction. This exciting scheme will allow us to showcase our analytical abilities and expertise in low-carbon buildings.
Structural works on a Minergie-P/ECO certified eco district demand a proven track record in sustainable construction. This challenge was brilliantly taken up by our team of concrete and recycled materials experts whose specialist knowledge was a real asset to the project.
In association with several renowned offices, NFIC was awarded the contract for the Aigle-Leysin railway line expansion project. This particular railway engineering project asserts our ambitions in this sector and demonstrates, once again, how important sustainable development is to us.
Pushing the boundaries also means constantly exploring new avenues of approach and new ideas. With Hello, Concrete, NFIC is helping to create an exhibition pavilion made entirely of 3D printed concrete. An extraordinary project to be experienced in the prestigious setting of the Vitra Design Museum.
On 3 September, the Beaulieu Theatre revealed its new face after a three-year renovation. This long-term project is part of a much larger conversion in which NFIC made a significant contribution. The kind of challenge we relish!
When NFIC's know-how is combined with an ecological and participatory approach, you can be sure the result will be something special! Welcome to the 2000-Watt Site at Églantine in Morges, a visionary project in which we are particularly proud to have played a part.
To mark its 25th anniversary in style, NFIC is celebrating with three very tall candles! The engineering company concludes the year by winning two daring projects including three emblematic towers.
The entire NFIC team was in China for a team-building event like no other.
Several of our employees participated in the 49th New York City Marathon in November 2019.
After being unveiled in Basel, the giant pencil made by NFIC was installed as a venue for concerts and performances in the heart of Zurich.
