From design and implementation to maintenance: an integrated project The ultimate accommodation for students and staff is a building with a great design, transparent character and a view outdoors from everywhere. Awarded a BREEAM Outstanding certificate. The sustainable choices we made in the design phase now help us maintain the building smartly.
The aim of the project was to design, deliver and maintain a good, functional, high-quality and sustainable educational building.
With Strukton PULSE, our own platform for optimal building management, we support the corrective and preventive maintenance and we continuously optimise the sustainability goals. Resulting in: more comfort, lower energy costs and fewer CO2 emissions.
This sustainable new building covering 22,000 m2 comprises 7 storeys with 13 escalators/stairways leading from a large atrium for 5,800 students. The building was completed by the Spark consortium, a partnership between Strukton Worksphere and BESIX Nederland. The Danish architect Smidt Hammer Lassen was responsible for the design. During construction, Spark worked according to the principles of Bewuste Bouwers (Aware Builders). After delivery, the consortium will be responsible for the technical management and maintenance for 15 years.
