Earthquake prevention for SBB Real Estate and SBB Infrastructure

Project overview

Swiss Federal Railways owns a large number of properties and infrastructure buildings and installations. These various structures have differing requirements in terms of earthquake performance that must be put in place and implemented. With the support of Basler & Hofmann, SBB has devised strategies for earthquake prevention and working aids for implementing these strategies in its Real Estate and Infrastructure areas.

Our services
