Apartment renovation consultant/contractor recommendation


We're considering buying our first house in Zurich and would like to have a renovation specialist/consultant take a look at the identified apartment to assess the extent of maintenance and repair work that would be needed - for instance, painting walls and ceiling, replacing floor carpets, knowing down a non-load-bearing wall and having a half-wall in its place instead, etc.

We'd prefer an English-speaking person, if possible.

Thanks in advance for any introductions/recommendations you could make in this regard!

Re: Apartment renovation consultant/contractor recommendation

I can help you with that.


I am a builder/designer rather than an Architect which normally carry out this work here. Age rather than condition is the main driver of costs. There should be a maintenance and renovation fund for the building as well as a planned maintenance schedule, this needs looking at to make sure that any liabilities are factored into the purchase cost.
