The production is lengthened in southern direction creating at the same time necessary surfaces for milk and breeding tanks.

The new construction is connected to the existing production with the adaptation/conversion of existing elements (outside facade, gate installations, connecting aisle, etc.).

The building is divided in social aisles (4 floors with top floor, ground floor, mezzanine, basement), production (2 floors with ground floor, basement) and tank areas.

The planned 17 tanks are placed on the basement’s ceiling and can be operated via the underneath lying basement.

The hall area is spanned with a steel construction as roof. Steel trussed rafters with a span width of l=36 m were used.
