A combination of social and competitive aspects influenced Coloplast’s decision to place their fourth production facility in the city of Nyírbátor in Eastern Hungary. Ramboll was selected as General Planner for the entire project.
The high-tech medico production facility, with offices designed in cooperation with architects and interior designers and over 5,000 sq.m. of cleanroom facilities, was constructed in the least developed part of Hungary. Here unemployment is high, and the new production facility marked the starting point for the development of the city of Nyírbátor and the surrounding area.
"Due to the client's requirements for production start-up, the project had a very tight time schedule. As a result, tender documents were prepared concurrently with the tendering and the preparation of the building permit application. During the construction phase it was decided to increase the ISO Class 7 cleanroom area from the original 2,500 sq.m. to 5,000 sq.m. Moreover, a chemical warehouse and state-of-the-art emission control technology were implemented and it was decided to modify the design of the entire facility to fulfil the stringent requirements of Coloplast's insurance company FM Global. Despite the added challenges, the construction was completed in only nine months and Coloplast took over the facility in accordance with the original time schedule", says Project Manager Jannick Just Hansen.
Ramboll’s Tailor-made General Planner Concept
As General Planner, Ramboll was fully responsible to Coloplast for all performed services comprising design, project management and construction management of the whole production facility, including architectural works, structural and civil works and mechanical and electrical installations as well as utility lines to and from the plot.
Ramboll has developed a General Planner concept that ensures a top quality result from A to Z, from purchase of the plot to the final handover of the completed production facility. The concept is tailor-made for industrial companies planning to build production facilities worldwide. It carefully guides the client through the planning of the building project. Ramboll takes charge of the entire process from the start of the planning until the completed building is handed over and, within the agreed time and budget, leaves the client with a modern production facility of Western European standard that also reflects our renowned Scandinavian sense of quality and good design.
