FKG Dentaire SA, 1st realization

Production hall, 2300 La Chaux-de-Fonds (NE)

Who would have thought that our decision-making and production center would be built by BAT-MANN in close collaboration with a disco?

Frequently borrowing the Fribourg Lausanne highway, I wondered each time what could hide this great building with bizarre and futuristic shapes, sometimes adorned with tropical palms: a disco? a shopping center?

I only understood this as a result of a continuous development of our sales with the obligation to build a new factory. Our first idea was a "hard" realization. The high amount of the quote made us considere other solutions. It was then that someone dropped the name of Sottas. oh yes,  the disco in Bulle!? This was the beginning of our collaboration with BAT-MANN SA and Sottas SA.

From the first contact, the proposed solutions convinced us. The project "turnkey" began under bad omen: first shots on June 1, 2006 under 5 cm of snow! It's La Chaux-de-Fonds! Fortunately, it was the only wrong note. After that, the weather was ideal until the last day, exactly 12 months later.

The whole project was carried out in a timely manner, without any accident or any particular problems. We would like to emphasize the professionalism of all our interlocutors and particularly appreciated their listening abilities and their availability. It was a unique experience and we strongly recommend BAT-MANN Constructions SA for the realization of such a project.

Result? A magnificent building both functional and aesthetic, placed in an extraordinary green setting and a whole team proud to work within it.
