Biomin has opened its new global headquarters in Getzersdorf, Austria. The 11,000 square meter building sets new standards for staff friendliness and energy efficiency.
It is the first platinum LEED-certified building (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) ever constructed in Austria. The opening ceremony took place on August 28, 2015. With Austrian Finance Minister Hans Jörg Schelling and Governor of Lower Austria Erwin Pröll in attendance.
The bright, spacious offices are equipped with ergonomic height adjustable desks, biodynamic light sources, plenty of natural light and a geothermal-powered cooling system. Situated on 20 hectares including wooded areas and a recreation area with running track and swimming ponds, the site offers room for further planned building expansions. The company had outgrown its former headquarters in Herzogenberg, Austria five kilometres away and relocated earlier this year.
