On the basis of its numerous standards, regulations, guidelines, recommendations and other documents, which are of vital importance for the entire planning and construction sector in Switzerland, the SIA has set up an indispensable regulatory framework for building and architectural activities. The Society consistently serves its members by organizing training events, offering advice and issuing various publications, and it represents their interests through its political involvement and its public relations work.
The SIA consists of four Professional Groups focusing on Architecture, Civil Engineering, Technology and the Environment.
