Sustainability - Tivoli Garden

zVg Dachtler Partner AG, Zürich

In the immediate vicinity of the Shoppi Tivoli in Spreitenbach, the new Tivoli Garden site is being built for residential and commercial use. Intep is supporting the unique contractor, Eiffage Suisse, in achieving the sustainability requirements according to greenproperty Gold and with a comprehensive waste disposal concept for the site during operation.

Disposal concept for the site, certification according to greenproperty Gold and planning according to Minergie-Eco

The new Tivoli Garden area – directly adjacent to the Shoppi Tivoli parking lot – will house new flats, offices, small businesses and a DIY store in a 5 to 7 story building and two towers with 19 sto-ries each. The base, consisting of a parking garage that will be connected to the adjacent multi-storey car park, raises the “city level” to the 1st floor. This level provides access to the commer-cial units as well as the office and residential areas. With the new Limmattalbahn (light rail line) running partly under the site and the surrounding amenities, a community complex is being cre-ated in an optimal location.



Greenproperty certification

The seal of quality sets high standards for sustainable property management. As one of the first projects, the Tivoli Garden will be certified at the gold level according to the 2019 version of greenproperty. For the “Gold” rating, a minimum of 55% must be achieved in all greenproperty dimensions (use, infrastructure, CO2/energy, materials, life cycle) and, in addition, the Minergie-ECO exclusion criteria must be met. Properties that receive a greenproperty rating are more sustainable and future-proof than conventional properties.




Initially, the situation was challenging, with limited available space and access points for waste disposal. Intep subsequently developed waste disposal options and evaluated the operational fea-sibility. The waste quantities per fraction were determined for the residential and commercial areas in the company based on benchmarks. In the next step, the processes and space require-ments were shown for the use of standard containers vs. above-ground or sunk press containers. With the involvement of the planners and the municipality, a disposal concept was prepared for submission to the municipality.
