Implenia opens up new vistas. As Switzerland’s leading provider of construction, civil engineering and real estate services, Implenia prides itself on its ability to master every stage of the construction process. Listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange, the Group has all the necessary resources to implement large-scale, complex projects, both within Switzerland and abroad.

A tradition of strength. Implenia is Switzerland’s leading provider of construction services. It traces its roots to the merger of various Swiss companies with a long history of success stretching back more than a century. Our integrated business model allows us to competently and professionally manage projects though each individual stage, from vision to reality. Customers can request specific services or take advantage of our en­ tire portfolio, depending on their individual needs and preferences. Comprehensive resources. Our experience, know-how, size and financial strength enable us to compete for demanding real estate and infrastructure projects at an international level. Whatever we design, build and operate, it should serve the people for whom it’s built. Flawlessly and sustainably.

We plan and build what clients want and what is technically feasible: high up, deep down, through mountains and across water. We build new and renovate what is old. The scope of our activities is as varied as the sectors for which construction is intended: residentials, commercials, mobility, leisure and health. Whatever type of construction may be required – traditional or industrial – you choose the capacity, skills and services that we provide as a general contractor or specialist.

Implenia Tunnelling

World record – Breakthrough of the longest tunnel


Implenia is a highly acclaimed expert for all types of demanding tunnel projects. The expertise and experience we have acquired throughout our 100-year history are second to none. Testament to this are the numerous projects that have gone down in construction history.

in the world.

Implenia Tunnelling

Setting new standards in the name of mobility. Successful tunnelling construction is based on a winning combination of man and machine. Experience and expertise are just as essential as state-of-the-art technology. Over the decades, Implenia has repeatedly proven its ability to realise major achievements that set new international standards. A recent example of this is the construction of the longest rail tunnel in the world.

Extensive expertise. Outstanding engineering and architectural skills, coupled with far-reaching experience and respect for nature, are necessary to realise large-scale transport tunnels. Implenia has all the prerequisites for meeting the most demanding of challenges. We are well acquainted with all the latest tunnelling methods, as we apply them on a daily basis. Whether excavations with tunnel boring machines in hard rock, shield machines in soft ground or drilling and blasting, you can rely on us. Additional services such as pipe screen, diamond screen, jet grout arch, grouting, ground freezing and preventer-protected drilling are our stock-in-trade. It goes without saying that we also draw up and implement optimal supply management and logistics concepts. In keeping with our comprehensive service philosophy, we are also at your disposal for the demanding end stage of rail and road technology. The renovation of existing tunnels completes our range of services. We are open to all forms of cooperation – be it as general contractor, a total services contractor or a specialised sub-contractor.

Building excellence despite the toughest conditions. In power plant construction, specialised services such as galleries, shafts and caverns come into play. As these building sites are often located in areas that are difficult to access, our experts are also faced with a challenging topography and climate. By offering the full spectrum of construction disciplines, Implenia is able to rise to this challenge.

Galleries, shafts and caverns. Implenia offers a broad array of services in the field of power plant construction. Our team of engineers and experts are entrusted with constructing galleries and shafts of challenging lengths and inclinations – be it using one of our many mechanical driving mechanisms, for which we have our own inventory and unrivalled experience at our disposal, or conventional drilling and blasting methods. For vertical and sloping shafts, we use the raise-boring methods, shaft drilling machines or blast excavation, whichever is best suited. Furthermore, we construct caverns of all sizes.

Successfully defying nature. Each project is unique – just like the topography. When it comes to constructing power plants, it is nature not man that sets the pace. Thanks to their extensive experience and high degree of flexibility, our team of experts continually succeed in defying even the toughest conditions, handing over the completed project on schedule and in a quality that Implenia customers are accustomed to expect.

Big in little things, too. Service tunnels are particularly challenging. Supply and disposal lines form the main arteries of populated areas. The constant growth in urban centres and agglomerations calls for new construction methods that will cause the least disturbance to people and traffic. Implenia draws on its experience in this sphere to propose innovative solutions.

Ensuring continued supplies. Without supply lines for electricity, water, oil and gas, the fabric of city life would collapse within a short space of time. Implenia does not just focus on major tunnels, but is also an expert in small-scale service tunnels. We offer advanced, comprehensive construction solutions that require no excavation work. Minor operation, major impact. Thanks to micro-tunnelling, pipe driving and horizontal drilling, Implenia is able to construct service tunnels and pipelines requiring just an above-ground start and exit shaft. We have all the equipment necessary to carry out processes of this kind – allowing us to provide everything from a single source and to complete your project swiftly and flexibly.

Implenia will also create displacement as well as bored piles. We are wellversed in all the latest excavation methods, too – be it bored pile retaining walls, diaphragm walls, soldier pile walls or soil nailing. Dewatering, horizontal filter wells and small filter wells are also included in our areas of expertise. Deep drilling, exploration drilling and vibroflotation round off our service range.
