News from SAN Biotech Park

26. April 2022

The construction work on SAN Biotech Park - consisting of two building complexes - is in full swing.

Erich Erber, founder and president of the SAN Group, visited the construction site on the occasion of the start of construction of the main building.

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,” explains Johann Trauninger, Head of Real Estate Development of SAN Group and project leader of the SAN Biotech Park. Ecological and long-lasting construction materials, 100% LED lighting, and greening of the roof and facades also have a positive effect on the life-cycle assessment of the building.

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.

The completion of the main building, consisting of offices, laboratory facilities, auditorium, atrium, restaurant, and company kindergarten, is scheduled for the end of 2023 and will provide space for up to 180 employees. The sustainable, unique construction method offers employees the best working conditions. The entire supporting structure and the facade are to be built before the end of 2021.
