Completion of the framing
The first big stage of the building works has been completed!
The shell of the new building was completed in mid-December, exactly on time.
In a second major construction step, the interior construction of the office space, the laboratory, the technical room, the storage area, and production-relevant areas will follow.

The top floor
Meanwhile, the construction project of Biohealth International GmbH has reached the next floor!
Next to the ground floor and the basement, the basic shape for the upper floor has also just been set.
This creates modern office space for employees from the areas of order processing, the laboratory and technical staff, which enables direct in-house communication between the individual production-relevant departments – one of the most important basic prerequisites for successful cooperation.
The ground floor
Since the laying of the foundation stone in September, the new building at Biohealth International GmbH has reached a new milestone!
After the laying of foundations, the extent of enlargement can now be overlooked.
The new ground floor will expand the existing production areas, which can only be reached via so-called hygiene locks. In addition, a wet cleaning and drying area for the cleaning of machines, a modern laboratory and a technical room with higher safety standards are being created.

By setting a total of 18 concrete pillars, we have come a big step further towards completion of the new building.
The area of the already existing ground floor is currently used for production and processing.
The building project extends the company premises to the planned 1,400 sqm. This allows for the construction of additional production facilities, the expansion of warehouse areas and integration of a discharge lock.
