This new building for F. Hoffmann-La Roche AG provides a representative introduction to the production buildings on the campus in Kaiseraugst. The new construction has a clear and homogeneous structure. Its interior is extremely flexible and enables highly complex pharmaceutical production. Here, small-molecule medicines (pharmaceuticals containing low-molecular-weight substances) are prepared and commercialised under clean-room conditions.


The building’s uses are distributed across six storeys. The production and service storeys each form a unit, whereby the service storey, with its floor realised as a steel construction, is above the production storey. This structure makes it possible to flexibly add to production systems and adapt them to new requirements. Moreover, the service areas can be accessed during ongoing production under clean-room conditions. The floor plans in the building are clear: Staff can easily get their bearings. Flows of people and goods are efficiently organised. Production can be witnessed via lines of sight that guarantee insight into workflows for visitors and staff. In addition to the production area, the building provides office workplaces, meeting rooms and open communication zones. The infrastructure is selected such that production and office areas are flexibly extendable.
