Rapidly Increasing Demand Requires Urgent Expansion Of Premises
The 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 the staff.
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.
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 move. Therefore, we also knew that we would unfortunately not be able to be on site in person as often as we would have liked and witness 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 benefits or added values?
It was simply a very good feeling to be able to see the construction site at any time of 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 by means of the camera recording.
