The Swiss family-owned company Zweifel Pomy-Chips AG has decided to expand their production site for its potato crisps by adding another office and service building. In addition to creating more office space and more room for research and development, the new building also houses a staff canteen and visitor centre.
In order to guarantee a high quality of the interior, the building envelope had to have large glass surfaces and profiles that were as narrow as possible in order to achieve maximum transparency. In addition, the façade system had to meet high requirements in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency, as well as providing convincing solar, weather and sound protection.
In consultation between the client, facade planner and architects, it was decided that the closed cavity façade system WICTEC Modul air was the ideal system to meet these requirements. Thus, 170 units of the WICTEC Modul air façade system were installed in a total façade area of 1,500 m².
