During the construction of the ‘Stücki Park’ shopping centre in northern Basel, the so called village, a 3-storey high installation, was erected beneath other elements. Expomobilia was hired as the general contractor. We were responsible for the complete load-bearing structure in steel / wood elements as well as the walnut wood façade of the ‘Stücki Village’.
An attractive and versatile meeting place was created, boasting a modern wooden look with shopping and activity offers, restaurants, doctor & dental practices, physio practitioners and coworking spaces. Due to its refit vision, the cube-shaped building in the heart of the old shopping centre, designed by the renowned Diener & Diener architects, was an extraordinary structural engineering project even for our experienced project managers.
5’209 m2 gross floor area 370 tons of steel
Expomobilia implemented the components of the ‘Stücki Village’ as described above as general contractor under the management of the total contractor S+B Baumanagement AG. Within just five months, we brought the highly complex project to completion. Stücki Park remained open throughout the entire construction phase. The tight schedule, the construction during ongoing operation and the small logistics area for the building material required flexibility and innovative thinking skills from all team members.
The assembly of the steel girders weighing up to 3.5 tonnes and the planning and placement of the façade panels with millimetre precision was a challenge. Thanks to the precise execution planning and many years of project management experience, the project team also mastered this task competently. The linked construction with the various trades within the tight schedule is another special feature of the three-storey building construction. This project shows that Expomobilia can also professionally implement permanent building construction projects.
