Anyone travelling on the A12 between Arnheim and Utrecht will see the Gira logo at Veenendaal. The Dutch branch of the home automation specialists from the Bergisches Land has been established for several months here in the north of this town of 65,000 inhabitants, today known as the Silicon Valley of the Netherlands. At 600m2, the modern three-story building houses offices, meeting rooms, a technical hotline for customers and state-of-the-art training facilities. However, the focal point of the site is the first Gira Experience Center, which covers the entire ground floor. Since the beginning of September, the Center has been open to installers, wholesalers and architects. Hans Flier and Jacob de Muijnck, the managers of Gira Nederland BV, are agreed:
“Our Experience Center is much more than just a standard showroom”. In a model house with a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, Gira demonstrates the possibilities for using innovative technologies in building control.
