The project involves a great variety of laboratories, educational facilities, office spaces, a library, a restaurant, and sport facilities, amounting to approximately 75.000m2 GFA. Construction of the biological research building, containing research glasshouses, and a central energy supply facility are also part of the plan. Furthermore, the possibility for a newly constructed parking facility has been investigated. By means of a European tender procedure, combined with a negotiated procedure, three architect firms have been selected, with Rudy Uytenhaak as coordinating architect.
The contractors (Ballast Nedam Bouw Speciale Projecten and Burgers Ergon Installatietechniek) have been selected prior to the production information stage, as part of the Engineer & Build procedure.
The last phase of the entire building complex has been completed in June 2010.
