Hello from an English-speaking architect

Hi!
I am new to this forum and I would like to introduce myself.
I am an American citizen, with Russian origins, who lives in Switzerland since 1997.
Last year I have founded an architectural company, together with a Swiss architect - Arco Ligne Architecture SA in Renens, VD.
We can do property evaluations, new building and renovation projects, interior design, and actual building-site management.
We are looking to meet new clients, people of the same profession or participate in discussions on architectural topics. I will be happy to answer any questions related to construction in Switzerland.
Thanks a lot

Re: Hello from an English-speaking architect

Welcome to the EF, Arcoligne. Hope your contributions will go beyond discussions on architecture and building.

By the way, a friend of mine has bought a new apartment and the finishers didn't do her bathroom the way she wanted it. They refused to redo it. Is she entitled to compensation?

Re: Hello from an English-speaking architect

Thanks, Argus.
Did your friend have detailed plans of how works should be done or at least a detailed order of elements for the bathroom? If she can prove that she didn't order what they installed or that the installation has defects, she should be able to claim a re-installation.
In the case that the work is poorly done, she can find an expert, another company that does similar installations, get a report and demand that work is redone in a fixed amount of time, otherwise another company will do the work and bill the 1st company.
All legally working building-related companies are obliged to have an insurance, so if their work has defects, they can claim from their insurance. The client needs to insist, in a written form, for mistakes to be corrected.
