New State-of-the-Art Office and Research Facility


On this page you'll find the latest news and additional resources about the upcoming new Nutrition & Biosciences building in Leiden, Netherlands.


Breaking ground on new facility

January 24, 2019 marked an important milestone for Nutrition & Biosciences in the Netherlands. Putting the first stake into the ground of the new EMEA head office was celebrated with the city of Oegstgeest, project developer Dura Vermeer, employees based at the site, and everyone else who contributed to the project so far.


Nutrition & Biosciences and BREEAM Excellent

The new building will follow a BREEAM Excellent assessment process to reach the highest sustainability standards. Given the main function will be laboratories for research & development – which is not part of the standard BREEAM assessment – bespoke guidelines were needed to define the exact measures to achieve the BREEAM credits. Some of the important measures applied to this design are:
- Cold-heat storage with heat pumps
- Solar panels on roof
- LED lighting for all laboratories and offices
- High flexibility with column-free floors and modular partition walls
- Ecological measures to create an environmentally friendly surrounding
The Nutrition & Biosciences design team consists of Dura Vermeer, Ector Hoogstad architecten, ABT and L3Q. The BREEAM process to obtain their certificate is led by Build2Live on behalf of ABT. All these parties will meet monthly to discuss, advance and safeguard the BREEAM Excellent process.
