SRON tops out

Since an ‘old-fashioned’ topping out ceremony is of course impossible under the current Covid-19 regulations, SRON came up with a nice alternative. This video is a short tour of the construction site. Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed the new SRON research center around the four programs of astrophysics, exoplanets, earth and technology. The building has several state-of-the-art laboratories and workshops in which the SRON staff develops and builds essential sensors for satellites. Special labs include low-vibration, electromagnetically sensitive cleanrooms and cryolabs. The central atrium on the first floor connects offices and laboratory functions, provides natural daylight and stimulates interaction among employees. In the façade, parametrically designed shading elements contribute to a healthy indoor climate conditions. The transparent plinth allows for an impression of SRON’s activities and integrates the SRON community into Leiden Bio Science Park. Completion of the building is expected in the second quarter of 2020.
