Honour to whom honour is due

The roughly 50 participants at the sia delegates’ meeting – held in Solothurn on May 23, 2014 – unanimously elected Paul Lüchinger as an honorary member of the association. This was in recognition of his extraordinary services to sia and his valuable contribution to Swiss building culture.


For almost four decades, Paul Lüchinger has been actively involved in standard matters, e.g. within the framework of the “Swisscodes” or the “conservation standards”, in a position of responsibility. In addition, through numerous lectures, publications and above all, in his daily work as a civil engineer, he rendered outstanding service to the “Dialogue of Designers” and encouraged the responsible handling of existing buildings and constructions.
