DIFFER celebrates start construction and BREEAM Excellent qualification

On 16 September 2013 DIFFER celebrates the start of the construction phase with a festive ceremony near the construction area. In 2015, the DIFFER institute will move to a new laboratory building on the campus of Eindhoven University of Technology. The new laboratory will support new research activities in solar fuels and expand existing activities in fusion research.
DIFFER's new building will feature two large laboratory spaces surrounded by three layers of offices and spaces for, amongst others, the ICT and electronics departments, mechanical workshop and drawing office. Open spaces on the three floors facilitate meetings between colleagues and visitors.

DIFFER has decided for a highly sustainable design. The institute has been awarded for the BREEAM qualification of excellent for its new building, including both office and laboratory areas. BREEAM is a widely recognized qualification for building energy efficiency and sustainability. This requires some special design aspects. An unusual facade combines maximum daylight and view. At the same time the facade prevents warming up as much as possible. The entire roof  will be used for the generation of solar energy.

Ector Hoogstad Architects designed the new laboratory in close cooperation with a project team consisting of Dura, Unica, Deerns, Peutz and IMd.
