Oblamatik Innovation & Technology Center

Our Innovation & Technology Center in Chur, which opened in 2019, is one of the most modern buildings in Switzerland and offers an inspiring working environment for up to 100 employees.

Building concept As homely as at home

For innovation to happen, we needed creativity. And creativity needs a relaxed mind. Therefore, our employees required a working environment they could feel comfortable in. Everyone has different needs. The innovation and technology center meets these needs by offering various work and relaxation zones: quiet spaces for working alone and as a team, meeting rooms, resting rooms, a library, a workout room, and a restaurant.

Throughout the building, one-third of the space is available for communication and recreation. The materials used – lots of wood, glass, and exposed concrete – create a homely, natural, and warm atmosphere. Cozy armchairs, stools and sofas with different color schemes per floor further enhance this effect.

«Come home to work» is the credo. The idea behind this new Oblamatik working environment is to encourage communication and collaboration.

One of the most innovative buildings in Switzerland

The design and construction works for the Innovation and Technology Center lasted from September 2017 to June 2019, with the grand opening involving the public on October 26, 2019. The canton of Graubünden recognizes the innovation and technology center as a «new building with a model character». In addition to providing maximum thermal, acoustic, and aesthetic comfort for employees, the building is also extremely energy efficient and it meets the Minergie-P standard.
