The Swiss town Affoltern has always been connected with one thing throughout its thousands of years of history: the cultivation of fruit, apples in particular. This is how it came to be that the newly developed OVA-Area was built on former premises of "Obstverwertungs-Genossenschaft Affoltern am Albis" (fruit exploitation companionship). Its name reminisces about these old times. The OVA-Area is a modern business and living complex benefiting from an excellent transport link in and out of the city of Zurich.
Shortly after the completion of the Area´s first business building, the "1. Etappe" (1. Phase), almost all of the premises were rented out. In order to meet this striking demand, the construction of a second building was initiated and given the name "2. Etappe". Much like its predecessor, the 2. Etappe was rented out extraordinarily fast. Service providers from various sectors including power supply, consulting, physio therapy and even a yoga studio are based in the building. These diverse tenants do have varied demands on the rental areas of the building. In regard of temperature control, these demands were met with the heating and cooling system Plafotherm® DS TAS. This ceiling system is installed in all rental areas of the 2. Etappe.
The Area´s excellent transport link often brings travelers willing to stay. A local Holiday Inn Express*** makes for an optimal accomodation on business travels. In this ways, the service provider of the OVA-Area and the Hotel form a symbiotic relationship. The main entrance hall was also fitted with a heating and cooling ceiling system by Lindner.
