BIOMIN breaks ground for new headquarters in Austria

 
 

Animal nutrition company, BIOMIN marked the groundbreaking ceremony of its new headquarters in Getzersdorf, Austria on November 13, which will be due for completion in 2015.
 
 

The headquarters, situated about 75 kilometers west of Vienna, is part of the new campus of BIOMIN's parent company, Erber AG and will replace the existing premises in Herzogenburg. With 11,000 square meters of office space, it will house the management and administration of the Erber Group and its subsidiaries BIOMIN Holding, Romer Labs Holding, Sanphar Holding and Bioferm GmbH.


The 53,000-square meter headquarters is estimated to cost in the range of double-digit million euros. The first phase of construction will see the completion of office, meeting and recreational spaces for up to 400 people. A conference and training centre will complete the project.

 

The design of the four-story building follows the principles of sustainability and optimised life-cycle costs. High insulation capability, groundwater heating and cooling, and heat recovery ventilation have been incorporated in the Campus' architectural blueprint for high performance energy efficiency.
 
Photovoltaics will supply a large part of the electricity requirements. At only 10 kWh/m², the energy level of the new headquarters will correspond to the energy consumption of a passive house.
 

The Erber Group Campus is constructed with the aim of meeting the requirements of a platinum certification under the rating system set by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) of the US Green Building Council (USGBC, US Council for environmentally friendly building). The Erber Group Campus will be Austria's first building to be certified with the LEED Platinum rating.

 

With the new Erber Group campus, the town of Getzersdorf in Austria is set to claim its spot among Austria's leading innovation centres for agro-biotechnology.

 

BIOMIN, the leading company focusing on health in animal nutrition, develops and produces feed additives, premixes and services for swine, poultry, dairy and aquaculture to improve animal health and performance, in an economically viable way.
