Switzerland: Modern work environment replaces industrial landscape

Ein weiterer Vorteil der neuen Adresse ist die Nähe zum Bahnhof Schlieren und die damit gute Verkehrsverbindung nach Zürich.

By the end of 2019, the former printing works of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper in Schlieren will be turned into a center for education, research and culture. Zühlke is one of the anchor tenants.

The service provider for innovation projects will establish its future headquarters in an area of 8,300 square meters. RBSGROUP, a Drees & Sommer subsidiary, is supporting Zühlke with planning of its future headquarters, and is developing a new work environment for some 600 employees. The building complex – parts of which are 30 years old and in which the Neue Zürcher Zeitung went to press – is being remodeled and renovated. Startups, research facilities and a cultural program are set to transform the former industrial complex into an innovative, flexible work environment. One of the contributors will be innovation service provider Zühlke, which will be moving its headquarters to the former printing center to accommodate the growing number of employees. The move will also bring together all staff – currently at working at two different sites – in one building. The company plans to build new offices, meeting rooms, lounge areas, labs and a staff restaurant in the 18-meter high press hall. Four intermediate floors will be constructed in the hall to make efficient use of the space. These new floors will accommodate all employees formerly working at two locations in Schlieren. The workplace experts from Drees & Sommer are assisting the principal with the planning of the future headquarters and working on the development of the new office space jointly with the principal.
