Rapidly Incre­asing Demand Requi­res Urgent Expan­si­on Of Premises 

The Com­pa­ny

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

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 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.

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.
