PingProperties and BAM sign turnkey building contract for redevelopment of business premises in Arnhem
PingProperties and BAM have signed a turnkey building contract. BAM Bouw en Techniek – Eastern Region has been contracted by PingProperties to transform a former laboratory building into the global head office of Teijin Aramid. The building of approx. 6,000 m2 is on the former AkzoNobel/ENKA site at Velperweg in Arnhem. Delivery is scheduled for the third quarter of 2020. The redevelopment will result in a sustainable and future-proof office building. Following the refinancing agreement at the start of the year, this is the next step in the transformation of the AkzoNobel site into a multifunctional area combining homes, work and education.
From laboratory to sustainable head office
The existing building will be transformed into Teijin Aramid’s global head office, incorporating cutting-edge climate and sustainability technology. The entire redevelopment of the former laboratory will involve demolishing part of the building, stripping the remaining part back to the concrete shell, installing brand-new systems and building a new, sustainable facade. This new, high-quality facade will not only give the building an appearance that befits a modern head office, but will also minimize the building’s energy consumption. To complete the transformation, the building will be given new fixtures and fittings fully designed in collaboration with Teijin Aramid to create the image and workplace concept envisaged by the company. All this will contribute to Teijin Aramid’s ambition to achieve operational excellence.
First phase of the area development project Arnhem is completed
Teijin Aramid moves into new head office.
Teijin Aramid, global leader in aramids, is moving into its new head office at Tivolilaan 50, on the former AKZO ENKA site in Arnhem. The head office of 5,000 m2 is housed within the skeleton of one of Teijin Aramid’s old laboratories. During recent months the building has been completely transformed by BAM for PingProperties into an inspiring head office. During the coming years, the former AkzoNobel-ENKA site will be developed into a multifunctional area combining homes, work and education. The move by Teijin Aramid into its new head office marks the completion of the first phase of this unique area development project.
