Renovation VROM building by OMA and EHA

The Central Government has awarded the contract for the renovation and exploitation of Rijnstraat 8 in The Hague to PoortCentraal, a consortium with BAM, ISS and OMA. After renovation, this building which formerly accommodated the ministry of VROM (Transport, Spatial Planning and the Environment), will house the ministry of Foreign Affairs, the ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, the Immigration and Naturalisation Service and the CAO (central organisation for the reception of asylum seekers). The building will become a flexible government office: it will be suitable for multiple organisations, not just a single government department.

The design for the transformation of the building is made by OMA and BAM. The design is established in cooperation with Jan Hoogstad and Ector Hoogstad Architects.
The Renovation Rijnstraat 8 project entails the renovation of an existing building originally designed by Jan Hoogstad. He received the commission for the VROM building  in the mid-nineteen eighties. The renovation must treat the architectural quality of the design with respect. When choosing the consortium, the degree of sustainability (energy, materials and environmental load during exploitation) was also taken into account.
The consortium, consisting of  BAM PPP PGGMBAM UtiliteitsbouwBAM Techniek and ISS Nederland is financially supported by Rabobank International and Allianz Global Investors Europe. Financial Close is expected to be achieved in July. The joint venture of BAM PPP and PGGM is the equity provider. The integral PPP contract has a duration of 25 years with a net present value of € 267 million.
The contract will be signed on 2 June 2014 in the presence of Minister Blok for Housing and the Central Government Sector. Rijnstraat 8 will be renovated in the period 2014 through 2016. The organisations involved are expected to move to the renovated building at the beginning of 2017.
