Laupen shooting range, Wald, pedological building management (PBM)

The project

Place: Wald (ZH)
Customer: The municipality of Wald (ZH)
Phases: Submission and implementation
Period: 2018
Construction costs: Approx. CHF 470,000


The Wald municipality (ZH) had to renovate the backstop of the Laupen shooting range, located on a steep slope in an agricultural and forest area, as a contaminated site. Due to the challenging development and large-scale recultivation, it was requested that the project be supported by pedological building management (PBM). Thanks to the use of pedological building management (PBM), the requirements for physical soil protection could be accommodated in an optimal way.
