Building-site stories: swisscom demolition

The project has entailed the transformation of a Swisscom facility in the centre of Muralto. The above-ground parts of the building (22,400 cubic metres), in disuse and not in line with the needs of a residential building, have been torn down, and the 3 underground levels (17,900 cubic metres) have been preserved and transformed.

All through demolition and construction the Swisscom telephone-exchange facility, on the first underground levels, has remained active, as it services an important segment of the Locarno territory. This has called for accurate organization and supervision during all stages so as to abide by the safety measures required by Swisscom.
