The two-storey building houses a large sales and display space on the ground floor, with modern training rooms and offices above. The production hall and warehouse are located in an adjoining building. The complex was planned and constructed by the architects at Budszuhn + Rüttger from Erfurt. The interior is bright and inviting, with floor-to-ceiling windows and additional skylights. In order to demonstrate to customers how the individual building technology systems can work together, the directors of Marx Intronic and operating manager Michael Gebhardt opted to partner with systems integrator Ronny Schlorke and his company from Ebenheim.
"We proposed various solutions to showcase the possibilities in terms of safety, access control, convenience and energy savings", explains Ronny Schlorke. "Naturally, we included the products that Marx sells in our ideas". In the background, a KNX system connects all actuators and sensors. The central interface is a Gira FacilityServer which evaluates and archives all of the data and issues defined logical commands. The lighting, sun protection, heating, natural ventilation, access control, intruder and fire alarms and door communication technologies are all integrated into the system, enabling it to provide data even on the status of individual doors and windows as well as issue warnings in the event of a fire or break-in.
