What we offer
We are an independent engineering and planning office based in Zurich. We are passionate about tackling challenging civil engineering tasks and finding economical and safe solutions. We consider it our duty to use limited resources optimally and sustainably for new constructions and for refurbishment projects.
We have been dealing with the following engineering topics for many years and have built up special in-house expertise. This enables us to create value for construction projects and for our valued customers.
Planning and realisation of railway systems.
Design of slab track.
Unreinforced slab design according to Eurocodes.
Seismic concepts and in-depth earthquake analyses for optimised retrofitting measures.
Project optimisation through recognised Swiss SIA expert and certified seismic engineer.
Comprehensive planning services for structures in all construction phases.
Expertise for structural safety.
Verification of the fire resistance of a structure in minutes according to Eurocodes.
Optimisation of structural fire protection measures.
Non-destructive or slightly destructive structural survey.
Structural assessment and recommendation of retrofit measures.
Independent second opinion and dispute resolution as recognised expert of Swiss SIA.
Assessment and optimisation of engineering concepts.
Since its foundation in 2015, Rubi Bahntechnik has grown to around 20 employees at 3 locations (Zurich, Bangkok, Tirana) with projects all over the world. All employees together have over 150 years of experience in the field of railway technology. We support our customers with expertise, competence and network. All according to their needs.
In the following a seclection of clients that we we have successfully supported to date.
Seismic analysis of school building Feldli (SG)
The school building at hand was verified for earthquake resistance using a displacment-based masonry pushover-analysis. The dynamic local soil behaviour was investigated in detail and taken into account (microzoning). Subsequently, the proportional retrofitting costs were determined. Through application of various selective, minor retrofitting measures, important seismic irregularities could be eliminated (abrupt stiffness changes, short-column effects, insufficient bracing in the longitudinal direction), which resulted in a significant improvement of the earthquake behaviour.
This work was awarded the seismic prize SGEB Prix CAS.

Expert Consultant SIA
Since the very beginning of my engineering career, I have been involved in the comprehensive assessment of structures. My unswerving credo is dedication to lifelong learning and the highest quality aspirations for my work.
I have been able to inspire many clients with these values, which allow for optimised solutions according to the latest scientific findings.
In implementing these goals, I am supported by an experienced and motivated team that I have been working with for many years. I look forward to hearing from you!
