For over 175 years, the SIA has been Switzerland's leading professional association for qualified construction, technology and environment specialists. Together with around 15,000 members from the fields of engineering and architecture, the SIA constitutes a unique interdisciplinary skills network focusing on a construction culture of the utmost quality, with the central aim of promoting high-calibre design to ensure that the built environment in Switzerland can meet the requirements of the future.
On the basis of its numerous standards, regulations, guidelines, recommendations and other documents, which are of vital importance for the entire planning and construction sector in Switzerland, the SIA has set up an indispensable regulatory framework for building and architectural activities. The Society consistently serves its members by organising training events, offering advice and issuing various publications, and it represents their interests through its political involvement and its public relations work.
The SIA consists of four Professional Groups focusing on Architecture, Civil Engineering, Technology and the Environment. It has a federal structure with 18 sections which ensure that the SIA’s concerns are taken into account locally, and in line with regional cultures. Specific technical issues are dealt with by the SIA’s 23 specialist associations, and over 200 committees and working groups comprising recognised experts focus on continuing to develop the framework of standards.
