Foundation stone laid for new Widstud shooting centre in Bülach ZH

Glattpark, 1 July 2021: The foundation stone for the new shooting centre in Bülach ZH was laid today in the presence of politicians, officials and representatives from the future operating company. Allreal is creating a building with various indoor and outdoor training facilities on the site of the old Widstud quarry. The work is due to be completed in Autumn 2022, with the centre scheduled to open its doors in Summer 2023.

Allreal is working on the project as a total contractor and the specialist property will be incorporated into the development property portfolio by the Projects & Development division upon completion. Widstud-Betriebsgesellschaft AG will act as the operating company under a long-term rental agreement with Allreal covering at least 30 years. The investment volume amounts to over CHF 30 million.

With plenty of training facilities on site, the new shooting centre is an attractive proposition with lots to offer all kinds of stakeholders. It is set to replace the existing infrastructures in the Canton of Zurich, which have already been closed down or are due to be closed down in the near future.

By incorporating the building into the old quarry site, taking a range of structural measures and basing a lot of the shooting activity inside, it has been ensured that the new build also meets the stringent noise protection requirements and emissions are being kept to a minimum.

Completion of the project is scheduled for November 2022. The centre is due to open its doors in Summer 2023.
