Rapidly incre­a­sing demand requi­res urgent expan­si­on of premises 

The com­pa­ny

Char­rak Nut­ri­ti­on GmbH has been pro­du­cing and sel­ling spe­cial­ly deve­lo­ped low-car­bo­hy­dra­te and glu­ten-free foods under the Dr. Almond brand sin­ce 2014: https://lowcarb-glutenfrei.com/

The initi­al situation

Due to the rapidly incre­a­sing demand for the pro­ducts, the pro­duc­tion capa­ci­ty had to be con­ti­nuous­ly expan­ded. The pre­vious pro­duc­tion faci­li­ty in Boben­heim-Rox­heim had reached the limit of its spa­ti­al capa­ci­ty sin­ce 2018. The­re­fo­re, lar­ger pre­mi­ses had to be built urgent­ly to expand the faci­li­ties and to incre­a­se personnel.

The con­struc­tion

The new buil­ding in Ram­stein-Mie­sen­bach was star­ted in the fall of 2020 and com­ple­ted at the end of 2021. The fac­to­ry hall in steel con­struc­tion with aera­ted con­cre­te walls was equip­ped with sta­te-of-the-art pro­duc­tion faci­li­ties and clad with hygie­nic walls in the pro­duc­tion area. Around 5 mil­li­on euros were inves­ted in the new food pro­duc­tion plant with offices and a plant manager’s apartment.

Inter­view

Why did you think about a con­struc­tion site came­ra in the begin­ning?

It was clear to us from the out­set that pro­duc­tion would have to con­ti­nue at our old loca­ti­on during the con­struc­tion pha­se until short­ly befo­re the relo­ca­ti­on. The­re­fo­re, we also knew that we would unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly not be able to be per­so­nal­ly on site as often as we would have lik­ed and expe­ri­ence the pro­gress. In addi­ti­on, we had alrea­dy seen such inte­res­ting time-lap­se vide­os in other new con­struc­tion pro­jects and found this a nice way to pre­sent our new con­struc­tion pro­ject to our cus­to­mers on the homepage.

Whe­re did you see the bene­fit or added value?

It was sim­ply a real­ly good fee­ling to be able to see the con­struc­tion site at any time of the day or night.
The fact that the­re was a visi­ble came­ra on the site, inclu­ding infor­ma­ti­on signs, cer­tain­ly pre­ven­ted one or two thefts from the out­set, which unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly are not uncom­mon on con­struc­tion sites. In one case, we were even able to iden­ti­fy the per­pe­tra­tor of a dama­ge on the basis of the came­ra record­ing.
