KEYTEK SA, THE SIA COST GUARANTEE CONTRACT

Keytek is a service company whose purpose is to ensure the execution of real estate projects by guaranteeing cost and quality of construction in partnership with its clients and their contractors. We place at your disposal a team highly experienced in the technical and financial aspects of building construction.

Because we take a detached view of the cost, quality and planning of projects, we are able to monitor the implementation phases in a neutral way and guarantee a cover in the event of a cost overrun. We are a safe and transparent alternative to the general contractor model and are recommended by the SIA (Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects) (an SIA guarantee contract).

Some of our prime clients are project owners, banks, architects and investors in real estate and construction.

KEYTEK

  • Ensures permanent project transparency
  • Is a Guarantor of Costs certified by the SIA

Keytek’S HISTORY

Founded in 2006 as a SIA initiative, and therefore certified and accredited by the Swiss Society of Engineers and Architects. Start-up capital of CHF 300,000 and a single employee. A year later the capital is doubled and several rapid developments are underway: Audemars Piguet in Brassus, the Meyrin ice rink, the expertise for and the start of works (demolition) at Geneva’s Cornavin railway station). In late 2013, the company opened a Valais branch in Verbier, its team increased to eight staff and offered contracts to other proven specialists, which resulted in several permanent full-time posts. Meanwhile it was called upon to work on some very big projects: Cordée des Alpes and Les 3 Rocs in Verbier, the Cornavin railway  station (phase 1 commissioned in the summer of 2012), the Cornavin station central Mall (inaugurated in December 2013). Currently, 7 appraisals are underway.
