WALO is active as an innovative total solutions company in all markets of the construction industry. The family-owned company has established itself as a reliable partner in the construction industry and infrastructure projects in Switzerland and worldwide with its decades of experience and the permanent development of sustainable as well as economical solutions.
We have successfully implemented many challenging projects. Therefore, we proudly let our references speak for our work.
Whether residential, industrial, healthcare, outdoor or for sports and leisure facilities - seamless floor coverings have to meet a wide variety of requirements on a permanent basis.
Good buildings and thus satisfied customers require precise construction work. All our employees, from unskilled workers to engineers, play a key role in ensuring that we achieve this goal time and time again.
With our locations in three countries, we are successfully active for you worldwide.
In building construction, the greater flexibility demanded from contractors has led to tighter deadlines and increased cost pressure.
There has been a a rise in the number of building projects in densely-populated areas with high volumes of traffic. The challenge is ensuring that the construction work causes no disruption to the people or the traffic in the area. Creative solutions, flexibility and quality – this is exactly what WALO offers its clients for new-build and alteration projects, as well as for renovations and refurbishments.
No matter what the scale of the project, be it general masonry work, complete housing developments, office blocks, industrial facilities, public buildings or underground car parks, we are firmly committed to meeting deadlines and minimising costs, from design right through to implementation. Our clients can count on our support, and if required, the project schedule can be coordinated with our partners – for a comprehensive service from a single source. Thanks to strict quality management and a high level of personal commitment, the specialists at WALO coordinate the work of the experts on site and ensure that each individual task is timed to perfection. Customised and creative building designs are implemented using state-of-the-art technology and tried-and-tested craftsmanship.
True to our motto “WALO” for all construction work, our building construction department comprises a division specialised in general masonry.
Our team of highly-qualified and meticulous professionals translate our company mission statement into action. Our commitment to safety, quality, operational efficiency and corporate identity applies just as much to our general masonry department as it does to the rest of our services. WALO’s general masonry offering includes: plastering for renovations, ceramic tiling, painting for renovations, full service contractor services for small-scale renovations.
The former WALO company headquarters from the 1950s was replaced by a townhouse with 27 apartments. The sculptural structure contains different floor plan typologies for today's urban dweller.
In the middle of Zurich Oerlikon, a high-quality replacement building was constructed in the form of an apartment building.
An architecturally striking building was created in the residential area of Zurich Wipkingen, which is characterized above all by its central location and the quiet urban neighborhood conditions.
At Saumackerstrasse 76-80 in Zurich, the existing building was renovated, the roof truss was demolished and a new attic (prefabricated timber construction) with six apartments was added.
We appreciate your interest in the WALO Group and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
