UBS and Wincasa launch new advisory solution for energy-efficient renovations of investment properties

Zurich, 10 April 2024 – Energy-efficient renovations are key to ensuring that properties remain in a contemporary condition and maintain or increase their value. However, renovation projects are often complex, and the advantages are not always immediately discernible. In addition, the collaboration of numerous experts is required. The cooperation between UBS and the Swiss real estate service provider Wincasa, a company of the Implenia Group, brings decisive advantages: renovations of investment properties will be easier and seamless to implement. The importance of energy-efficient renovations in investment properties can be seen in the emission of greenhouse gases – with a share of approximately 25% the real estate sector is the second largest emitter in Switzerland.

Renovation made easy thanks to modular offering

In a consultation session with UBS or Wincasa, the needs of the investment property owners are discussed and the offer is put together in a modular manner. They receive consulting, construction coordination and financing services tailored to their needs. The modules include technical and energy analyses, an assessment of the property’s risks and opportunities, as well as a renovation recommendation by Wincasa. UBS real estate experts are always on hand to assist clients in assessing financial viability, including the indicative calculation of financial incentives and tax deductions, as well as the evaluation of financing options whilst also taking profitability into account. If clients decide to renovate, Wincasa offers the coordination of construction planning and management. This includes, for example, representing the building owner, obtaining offers from construction companies and building permits. Of course, clients remain free to choose their implementation partners.

Jens Vollmar, CEO Wincasa and Head Division Buildings Implenia: "Wincasa and Implenia have extensive expertise and experience in consulting, planning and implementing renovation projects, particularly in the energy-efficient refurbishment of older existing properties. We will bring this expertise to the new offering and thus create added value for UBS customers."

"We are delighted to be launching this comprehensive advisory solution for the energy-efficient refurbishment of investment properties on the Swiss market together with Wincasa. With this new offering, we want to give an additional boost to sustainable thinking in the property sector," adds Alain Conte, Head Corporate & Real Estate Banking Switzerland at UBS.

The cooperation between Wincasa and UBS enables the sustainable development of property in Switzerland and makes an important and long-term contribution, both for the owners of investment properties, the tenants and the environment as a whole. The partnership and the launch of the new offer is an important first step on this joint path.
