The bank and wealth management group has given its Zurich HQ a major overhaul.
UBS reopens its headquarters in Zurich today, resuming operations after a three-year refurbishment to a building that was built more than a 100 years ago.
Located in the Swiss city’s Bahnhofstrasse area in which a number of banks are located, the modernised building is now “sustainably designed” – aiming for improved energy efficiency. The entire ground floor is now open to clients and visitors. The bank has created a UBS Forum at the heart of the ground floor.
Work on the building was led by the general planner team at EM2N Architekten AG.
The bank declined to say how much the refurbishment cost when asked by this publication.
The refurbishment work left the building’s exterior, which is protected by listing controls, largely unaffected.
