approx. ca. 9,090 m²

WALA’s goal was to expand its existing site in Bad Boll by adding modern laboratories and other facilities for some 180 employees. The project created more than 5,000 square meters of floor area, offering ample space – in particular for quality control laboratories and microbiology. As the producer of anthroposophic medicines and natural & biocosmetic products attaches great importance to harmony between humankind and nature, they worked closely with Drees & Sommer to establish the criteria for a sustainable construction process.
