News-Sustainability-Today

Andermatt UR – In the village part Andermatt Reuss stands the first building according to Minergie-P standard of the Ursertal. The Frame apartment house was realized by Andermatt Swiss Alps AG as the building owner and S+B Baumanagement AG as the total contractor.

The village part Andermatt Reuss, realized by Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, can present a new attraction, writes the building directorate of the canton Uri in a statement. With the apartment house Frame, the village part has the first building with Minergie-P certification in Ursertal. For the top category of the Minergie standard, high requirements must be met for the building envelope, energy balance and overall energy efficiency.

“Only a few structures have received this award in Uri so far,” construction director Roger Nager is quoted as saying in the release. In the case of Frame, the alpine location of the apartment house is an additional factor. “It’s a great achievement that this low-energy house could be built at around 1500 meters,” Nager says.

Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, the building owner, is having the new apartment buildings and hotels in the Andermatt Reuss part of the village all built to the Minergie standard. In the case of the Frame apartment building, the client decided to implement the Minergie-P standard thanks to support and advice from the Uri Energy Promotion Program, writes the construction directorate. She expects that two more buildings in Andermatt Reus will soon receive Minergie-P certification.

The Frame apartment building at Ritomgasse 7 in Andermatt Reuss was realized by the total contractor S+B Baumanagement AG. Its 34 apartments have already been handed over to their new owners in 2021. hs
