Institute for building culture, architecture, construction and territory

The inPACT Institute's convergence of skills in the fields of architecture, civil engineering and building technologies is unique in Francophone Switzerland.

The mission of inPACT is to develop innovative solutions for the built environment of the future. We are a competent, neutral and privileged partner for industry and public authorities, well linked to the professional and economic tissue of Switzerland.

The Institute's mindset is influenced by the specific territorial constraints of the Greater Geneva conglomeration, accepting the challenge of reconciling growth in a limited territory while retaining a worldwide recognized quality of life.

Strategic focus

  • Sustainable development, innovative materials and structural analysis
  • Energy, building and territory
  • Digital construction and project management
  • Risks and natural hazards

inPACT promotes territorial and environmental criteria as common references for projects. Through its various applied research activities and mandates, the Institute incorporates specific questions related to sustainability, ecology, structural performance, economy, renewable energies, Smart Buildings and the development of innovative structures.
