For current reasons
Arrangements in relation to coronavirus
In view of the special situation with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19), bonainvest Holding and its subsidiaries have taken important precautions to protect the health of our employees, customers, suppliers and all fellow human beings.
The action plan we have drawn up concerns, on the one hand, the maintenance of operational activities in compliance with the highest possible hygiene standards and, on the other hand, it allows the majority of employees to work in their home offices. We have decided to operate our personnel office presence in a reduced mode.
bonainvest AG is available by telephone, e-mail or conferencing tools during normal office hours and is happy to organize virtual meetings for exchange. We thank you for your understanding that bonainvest AG will refrain from holding meetings and encounters with a view to your and our health until 19 April 2020. We are continuing to push ahead with our projects in planning and development at full speed. The construction work of our projects is progressing without restrictions.
Our subsidiary bonacasa AG will continue to be available to its customers with its service centre and the wide range of living services. We have expanded our range of services that can provide support in the current situation: for example, we are offering our customers online access to food ordering. Our delivery and cleaning services are also currently in great demand. The highest hygiene regulations apply to all bonacasa AG employees, especially our concierges and cleaning staff, and we implement the measures of the Federal Office of Public Health in our customer contact.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your understanding and the trust you have placed in us and wish you, your families and your employees good health.

bonainvest Holding develops and builds all the properties itself. bonacasa gives the portfolio distinct advantages on the construction and services sides. bonainvest Holding properties are among the most sustainable in Switzerland: contemporary architecture, obstacle-free construction, intelligent floor plans and networked technologies, together with unique Living Services provided by bonacasa, are unique selling points against the background of increasingly challenging competition.
bonacasa is bonainvest Holding’s unique selling point. The subsidiary company provides a comprehensive range of Living Services to make living more comfortable and more secure. Tenants and home owners can decide for themselves which optional services they wish to use at fair prices. The offer is as diverse as the occupants of our homes.
