Dr. Schär in Burgstall, South Tyrol

Dr. Schär is a South Tyrolean manufacturer of gluten-free food products.

Nutrition conscious

The idea of producing gluten-free products came from Ulrich Ladurner, from Merano, who also runs the company. The head office of the Dr. Schär Group is Burgstall in South Tyrol. The corporate group is the market leader for gluten-free food in Europe. The range contains 120 gluten-free products: from bread, pasta and biscuits, through to flour, cereals, frozen products and a variety of snacks. Dr. Schär works together with nutrition experts and has an in-house research and development centre.

The new Dr. Schär headquarters in Burgstall opened after a construction period of almost two years. monovolume architecture+design in Bolzano was in charge of the construction. The basic idea of the design for the office building was the connection between the existing building and the new building. 300 employees now have a modern workplace over an area of 5,000 m² and four floors.

monovolume recommended a KNX system with a Gira HomeServer for this building. KNX is a future-oriented and vendor-neutral electronic nervous system designed in accordance with a global standard. One of the many advantages of KNX is that all building technology components can be retrofitted at a later stage.

The Gira door communication system with a camera ensures sufficient security. Inside, staff can always see who is at the door via a Gira home station. The Gira E22 switch range was chosen. This switch has an extremely elegant, high-quality appearance and a very precise form.

The international company attached great importance to sophisticated technology. With regard to temperature control, both careful production and the well-being of staff are taken into consideration. All the rooms are constantly supplied with fresh air, heated and humidified in winter and cooled and de-humidified in summer.
