Roche NPK, Construction 235, Galenics operation, offices and labs, Kaiseraugst AG

Architecture in the service of the greatest possible sterility

The demand for drugs which are administered by infusion or injection has increased rapidly in the last few years. To increase capacity and consolidate its various operations, a completely new galenics operation has been set up in Kaiseraugst. The industrial location and its purpose determine the pragmatic architecture. Networked electronic systems increase reliability and support GMP documentation. Constant environmental conditions are indispensable for aseptic process steps. Energy-efficient air-handling systems take up the whole of the second floor in order to deliver the right quantity of sterile, low-particle and conditioned air with controlled humidity.
