Construction of the new, cepezed-designed Genmab Research & Development Center on the Utrecht Science Park has commenced. The building will measure some 11.250 m² and will house offices, laboratories and facilities such as a science café, plaza and an auditorium. It is also characterized by a transparent atrium with a cascade of free floating 'saucers'. Meeting and sharing knowledge are important themes of the design. Just like the nearby Nutricia Research Center designed by cepezed as well, the Genmab Research and Development Center will be a BREEAM-Excellent certified laboratory building.
Genmab developes cancer medication, is globally an important player in this field. It participates for over fifteen years already in the cancer research taking place on the Utrecht Science Park, where science and industry meet.
