Default Background visible through objects

Hi all.

I am working on a model in which I import the .dwg floor plans of a hospital. For some reason, the floor plans I am using are visible through all objects in the model.

I tried creating a blank model, where I have two different floor plans with two different .dwg files. Only one of the .drawings causes trouble.

I have made a video demonstrating the problem:
FlexSim Floor Plan Mystery (Unlisted)

Since it is only one of the drawings which causes problems, I am guessing something is wrong with the drawing.

Does anyone know what the problem with the drawing could be?

Best regards
