have announced the one hundred owners differently, as they bought two years ago, an apartment on the Zwicky Areal in Wallisellen. At the time, the luxurious and 2.5 were touted - to 4.5-room apartments in the house of the forest of Neuguet with the beautiful words: "breathtaking views", "large terraces with barbecue," in a district "in which high quality of life, with Tradition and Modernity".
Less nice it sounds, if the owners are talking today about their apartments: "a nightmare", "disastrous", "a single Nuisance". You paid 600 000 to 1.8 million Swiss francs – a lot of bought for the first Time, residential property. But what happens here is even for experienced builders "extraordinary".
Live in between solution
Actually, the construction should be completed by the end of 2018. Then it was said in March 2019, later in may. "Now, I have received for next week, another move-in date," says an owner. For months, he lives in furnished apartments. Again and again he moved, because the intermediate solution only until the next promised move-in date was rented.
The cost for the relocation of Odyssey, the company's owner, has developed the Zwicky-Areal does. Currently, she is paid 19 owners stay in Hotels or furnished apartments. "The Situation with the new appointment delays is annoying and incomprehensible," says Ede Andràskay, managing Director at holder.

The blame for this Situation he sees in Steiner AG, which is the house of the forest of Neuguet built in the order of the holder: Virtually all of the construction work had been addressed, "with a big delay," wrote Andràskay and holder-in-chief Markus Mettler in a three-page letter to the Steiner-chief Karsten Hell. This Letter was sent after the TA had reported at the end of July about the problems on the site . Mettler and Andràskay surmise, Steiner have long tried to push for sub-contractors to the prices.
Steiner himself, the delays with smoke-pressure systems, which had to be re-approved, designed, or wrong plans, received explained. The smoke pressure system in the last of the four towers was removed this week, definitely.
In the other three towers are fed most of the owners now. What you experience there, is still "hair-brained" than the previous experiences of those who are first to move in. An owner says, in his apartment it currently has just under 100 shortcomings – "I'm still good". Others tell of water damage, scratches in discs, wrong grout color. One of them had to be located for several weeks in the Hotel showers, the in the lower three floors of the building.
The Hotel in may was the First to be ready. At the end of October, Steiner was booked a week-long stage all of the hotel's rooms and turned the house technical facilities maintenance. The defects were so serious that things or people were endangered, it means in a control report. An owner reported that, with him in the 10. Floor, smell it in the morning at 6 a.m., according to bacon, if, in the Hotel, the Breakfast will prepared. This is only a brief glimpse of the long list of deficiencies.
Steiner wanted to fix the problems of so-called defects of days and invited all the owners to be home to let tradesmen in the apartments. Of the 30 deployed, companies have appeared one of these days once five. The reason is that The artisans have to wait for months on money. In the other hand, the work was paid only in part. Steiner holds it back for various reasons.
In several cases, there are hundreds of thousands of francs. Several companies have operated Steiner. In accordance with a debt collection register extract from the September all enforcements of the company as a whole amounted to 3.5 million Swiss francs. A company had, in the meantime, the district court of Bülach, the contractor's right of lien register. In order to receive a share of individual apartments, as a pledge for amounts outstanding.
Steiner, the company issued, in the meantime, like the others, a guarantee of payment above the required amount. Whether the company will receive the money, is unclear. "The claims will not be recognised automatically," says Steiner, media spokesman Andreas Gurtner. The final settlement success only when all the defects are fixed.
About a dozen companies with which the TA has spoken, can find no good words for Steiner. The construction giant replied, with a turnover of 800 million Swiss francs and a collaboration with Hundreds of subcontractors, it could lead to disagreements. "All in All, Steiner maintains very good relations with its subcontractors," says Gurtner, and adds that it was for "a fair and partnership-based cooperation with the project partners".
the owners who purchased a defective luxury apartments or still waiting to finally collect it does not matter who is to blame for this "Disaster". They would prefer to be able to from your balcony "breathtaking view" enjoy – what falls to them because of the Trouble but it's hard.
Something Positive to the Situation, says: "We owners have partnered together and exchange ideas and thoughts active to defend ourselves together." This sweat and will certainly make for a good neighborhood, if the time were moved.
