Environmental Decisions.

The new working environment of GfA comprises an office building for research and development and an assembly hall. The expert for industrial doors has planned for the sales, product management, construction, service, prototyping and administration departments to cover an area of 5,400 square meters. The office building is characterized by split-level construction and staggered floors and offers bright rooms and short distances. The attractive working environment promotes concentrated work and internal communication. The R&D hall offers space for a large workshop, electronic test laboratories and flexible and scalable test areas. The production facility houses three new assembly lines. A solar system covers a quarter of the total energy requirement. Several e-charging points in the underground parking garage and two customer car parks with e-charging points round off the energy-saving features of the ensemble.

“We are aware of our ecological responsibility and have therefore decided have our new building certified as ‘passive’. This requires an experienced partner. With Vollack, we had already completed two construction projects and so we could be sure about the successful completion of this project.”
