Over the past few weeks, demolition workers were quite busy at the former Techniek museum in Delft, where cepezed resides. The only non-monumental building on the property was in poor condition and has made way for a circular new-build. The realization hereof will start in January 2019 and will already be completed in May 2019.
cepezed acquired the complex at the Ezelsveldlaan in 2012 and transformed it into a creative cluster with accommodation for various companies in the creative field. The circular new-build is also an own development and intended for companies in the knowledge-intensive creative industries.
The office building will be completely dismountable and will be constructed with a prefabricated steel construction as well as prefabricated wooden floors of CLT elements. The easily removable cover floor hereon will be of rubber granules and wood fiberboards. The facade is mostly transparent, with vertical shutter strips that can be opened for natural ventilation. All materials used are easily reusable or recyclable. The sober, modern building agreeably contrasts with the historic buildings.
The extremely short construction period is possible because of a thourough preparation and a close, integral cooperation between all cepezed disciplines, from the project development department to the architecture and interior designers and, of course, the cepezed construction team. With short communication lines, all specialists are situated under one roof, which not only benefits the efficiency of the process, but also the level of alignment and thus the quality.
