Sustainable VO Zernikeborg

The preliminary design of the new Zernikeborg on the campus of the University of Groningen is finished. The 200 meter long zigzag shaped Zernikeborg consists of five layers and a sixth installation layer on top. The new building with offices, classrooms and work spaces will soon be the workplace for employees, researchers, master and bachelor students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The design has been realized by an active participation of the client and its future users.
Partly because of the use of as  much daylight as possible, the building will meet to the high demands made on sustainability; Groningen University has the ambition to meet the BREEAM Excellent criteria.
Now the preliminary design has been established, work is continuing on the final design (completed in mid-2015).
