Tackling challenges today
Many current and future challenges for communities are complex and interdependent: coping with demographic change, reducing costs, improving ecology, and addressing loneliness through networking and service. We can provide support in these fields.
50 years of experience
Ivo Bracher, Chairman of the Board of Management of bonainvest Holding AG, presides in Biberist the Cooperative Alterssiedlung, in which the municipality of Biberist is also represented. Already 50 years ago, the cooperative recognized that the construction of apartments suitable for generations is the only practicable way to face demographic change on the one hand and the needs of older people and those of the communities on the other.
This led to the idea of bonacasa: mixed-generation living with threshold-free architecture and services and security available on request. In order to realize more projects, additional financial resources were needed, which is why the capital of private investors and above all pension funds was merged into a real estate investment company in 2009. All bonainvest projects are built according to the bonacasa building standard for future-oriented living.
Solutions from a single source
Our expertise is based on the three core areas consulting, implementation and networking: We support communities strategically in the development of a generational concept or in the reorientation of their old-age policy. With a long-term orientation, we develop and realize with bonainvest mixed-generation real estate projects in cooperation with municipalities. With bonacasa, we promote social and digital networking and offer a wide range of facilities such as concierge services or the 24/7 emergency call, which we can also make available at community level.
Using our expertise and many years of experience, we also work together with external experts in the fields of old-age and pension policy to develop concepts and solutions that can be implemented. We provide recommendations for action and organise seminars or workshops with communities. We clarify, for example, the question of what the optimal cooperation between outpatient and inpatient care institutions looks like or what the demand is for generationally suitable apartments in the community or region.
With bonainvest, we provide a reliable and fair investor to quickly implement projects according to the individual needs of a community. We organise independent architectural competitions or realise sustainable, generation-suitable residential buildings for and with communities. In the meantime, we have built a total of more than 1,000 apartments suitable for all generations at 23 locations, some of them under building law. We are also specialized in planning and realizing residential care homes.
Not only do we network residents among themselves, but also residents of communities. For example, we have set up a contact point for questions about old age. We realize our residential buildings according to the bonacasa construction standard. On request, we integrate the 24/7 emergency call with bonacasa and offer care, meal or household services from a single source to ensure a long life in the own four walls. In that way, communities not only improve the living quality of their inhabitants, but also reduce their own health care costs.
