INNOVATION CENTER CHEMISTRY AND ENGINEERING
Last week, construction of the Innovation Center Chemistry and Engineering was completed at Campus Groningen. Construction started a little over a year ago and after a year filled with hard work by Bouwgroep Dijkstra Draisma and installer ITBB, the official opening will take place early 2022.
In total, the 5-story, 21 meter high Innovation Center covers over 5.000 m2. The building has been designed gas-free and sustainable, partly due to the use of heat pumps, PV-panels and a sophisticated climate-hull. The design and construction of the building has been made possible by a collaboration between CODEX Architecture studio, contractor Bouwgroep Dijkstra Draisma, installer ITBB, engineering firm abtWassenaar and Draaijer + Partners.
About the Innovation Center
The Innovation Center will contribute to growth and development in the areas of Chemistry and Engineering. The center will accommodate multiple innovative and research-focused companies, among others Cliq Swiss Tech, DEMCON, MOOHA and Symeres. Next to these companies, the building will also house Innolab Chemistry and Innolab Engineering, offering R&D space to startups.
The building will also house ‘Space Werkcafé’, a hospitality hub offering not only a café, but also flex work spaces, meeting rooms, catering and a special membership. This way, the Innovation Center not only provides the perfect space for companies to grow, but also facilitates cross-pollination and knowledge-sharing among companies by bringing them together.
