Our agency

Who are we?


Created in 2005, Batiline was one of the first founder “profession” companies that now make up DBS Group. Subsidiary of Foncia Groupe, DBS Group is the benchmark for property services in French-speaking Switzerland and boasts significant growth in German-speaking Switzerland

Originally called Batiline SA – Architecture, Rénovation & Conseils, Batiline’s mission was to relieve the burden of the technical managers of DBS Group for whom, often, the extent and complexity of the project, required the skills of architects and works supervisors.

New markets then opened up and Batiline quickly grew, handling not only the project and sites for managed refurbishment buildings, for DBS Group clients, but also interior architectural work, conversions and refurbishments as well as space planning and new builds for new clients.

The legal nature of the range of services offered by Batiline SA make it an independent but complementary company, necessary to the activities of DBS Group that combine all of the property professions under one roof.
