SAN Biotech Park - the global headquarters of SAN Group

SAN Biotech Park, the future headquarters of SAN Group, consists of the main building and the industrial building and will provide space for 180 employees.
As the entire building complex is based on sustainable planning and construction, the central concept of the building is its resource efficiency, be it particularly sustainable building technology with photovoltaic systems, downhole heat exchanger and waste heat recovery, or collection of rainwater from flat roofs for the operation of the sanitary systems.

The completion of the main building, consisting of offices, laboratory facilities, auditorium, atrium, restaurant, and company kindergarten, is scheduled for the beginning of 2024. The sustainable, unique construction method offers employees the best working conditions.

The go-ahead for the construction of the industrial building was given in June 2021. Nine months later, the progress is impressive: Interior construction has begun, and the heating, plumbing, air conditioning and ventilation systems are currently being installed.
As we live Passion for Innovation as a company culture, we are proud to be one of the first companies in Austria to produce our own hydrogen. The assembly of the hydrogen production and hydrogen refueling station started at the beginning of April.
It is planned to open and commission the industrial building, which offers high-tech research areas and space for about ten employees, at the end of summer 2022.
