Heijmans has received the contract for the construction of the second phase of the Gorlaeus Building, which is part of Leiden University’s Science Campus. Delivery of the new-build Mathematics and Natural Sciences faculty is planned for the end of 2023. The project represents a value of around € 71 million for Heijmans.
Sustainable and flexible
The faculty’s new-build project includes a striking entrance, new laboratories and lecture halls. Leiden University’s ambition is to house the Mathematics and Natural Sciences faculty in a joint building with state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities. The university wants a building that offers a working environment that will attract international scientists and students and compete with the best; a place where students, lecturers and researchers meet each other and want to spend time outside college hours too.
And last but not least, Leiden University is aiming for a sustainable and flexible building, adaptable to the wishes and requirements of the future. The university has selected S+B Rotterdam for the fit-out of the laboratories.
