Our challenge is to approach the future of construction from an ecological point of view for existing buildings. Indeed, the constructive and technical complexity, but also the laws and standards that regulate the world of construction is a clear invitation to work and multidisciplinary collaboration.
The different departments that make up our office allow us to offer you a complete service and project. Tailor-made solutions whether it is a villa, a building or commercial premises, etc.
Our teams work together and the different skills of each one result in the proposal of a coherent project.
An intelligent sanitation is a sanitation that offers you a global approach of your property, maintenance, life of the building, your budget and the profitability of the investment.
What kind of work? What budget? Will the bank follow? When will it be done? How long will the work take? So many questions and legitimate interrogations which can slow down the owners to invest in an energy renovation.
Thanks to its experience, BIFF SA offers you the benefit of its vast know-how in the management of your projects. Our teams accompany you in each of the steps and choices to be undertaken by proposing a complete service by stages.
Construction management is the art of uniting companies and various agents around a common goal, namely the realization of the project.
Each project being unique and each construction site being punctuated by unforeseen events, whether they are constructive, human or meteorological, our multidisciplinary teams have been able to demonstrate during various achievements, to be able to ensure and respond to each difficulty in an efficient manner.
Thus, the key words of the direction of work are : anticipate, plan, federate, coordinate and adapt.
BIFF SA's mission is to elaborate a renovation project with a detailed plan of the work to be undertaken and to estimate the cost at +/-15%. The objective of the report is to estimate the total budget of the energy renovation work, but also of the necessary or complementary ancillary work such as waterproofing. To do this, our teams look at the technical, constructional and legal aspects. Indeed, when we talk about work, we talk about bringing various elements up to standard, such as railings, glazing or fire safety.
The budget report is drawn up on the basis of measurements, bids, offers from the various trades, on-site visits and discussions with the companies.
Our committed teams ensure that the solutions and variants best suited to your project are costed and that your wishes are respected, while ensuring that the conditions for the granting of municipal and cantonal subsidies are met.

Quality of the work :
BIFF SA offers its know-how to guarantee the quality of the execution of the projects, control and detect possible critical points, and determine corrective measures to improve the quality of the realizations with little or no influence on the budget or the execution time.
This know-how is also fundamental in the acceptance phase, as the simplest details or defects can have a significant influence on the performance of the façade throughout its life. The targeted analysis of all critical points with state-of-the-art tools guarantees a detailed knowledge of the accepted works.
Work in occupied sites :
A team that listens, communicates, adapts and reassures tenants, owners, co-owners and neighbors is the secret to the success of all our projects on occupied sites.
Assistance to the project owner
Within the framework of a realization, the assistance of experts is often necessary. It facilitates the coordination of the project and helps the project owner to improve the management of the project by acquiring, for example, a good understanding of the various technical terms specific to the façade. As advisors, the specialists of BIFF SA support the client in the integral management of the project while guaranteeing complete independence.
The vast experience of BIFF SA's collaborators in the realization of energy renovations and the integral management of projects is fundamental to be able to anticipate different execution scenarios and take measures to ensure the success of the projects.
Green building site
BIFF SA attaches great importance to the environmental impact of its work. We go beyond the legal requirements by promoting the integration of sustainable and low-nuisance construction methods in the tender documents.
The devices put in place may include the following :
Organize and secure the site and its surroundings.
Limit the risks on the health of the personnel.
Limit the nuisance caused to the neighborhood.
Inform and consider the remarks of the neighborhood.
Raise the awareness of the site personnel.
Reduce noise and vibration pollution.
Limit energy and water consumption.
Reduce visual nuisance.
Manage waste treatment.
Preserve the direct environment: natural and built heritage.
In order to implement these steps, an environmental charter specific to the project and describing these measures is drafted and signed by all the project participants. It is then posted and available on site.
