According to plan, contractor Mertens started in September with the renovations of the former main building of Breda University of Applied Sciences at location Mgr. Hopmansstraat. This building – which will be called Frontier Building in the future – will accommodate the domains of Games, Media, Built Environment and Logistics as well as several services. Students and staff of the domains mentioned above will eventually move to the Frontier Building in September 2019.
Game Labs and Production House Area
We made some photos of the first demolition work inside the building. The photos give an impression of the demolition work that’s carried out on the third floor of the building.
These ‘open community’ spaces are intended to accommodate students of the Creative Business programme (International Media and Entertainment Management). In this Production House Area, they will be working in teams on their media productions. On the third floor, you can also find the former lecture halls, which are converted for use as Game Labs – computer classrooms – by students of the Creative Media and Game Technologies programme (International Game Architecture and Design).
Meanwhile, the renovations are well underway: throughout the entire building, many crosses can be seen marking various walls, window frames and door frames – ready to be demolished, bringing us another step closer to the end result: a beautiful renovated Frontier Building!
We have installed a webcam at the construction site so that you don’t have to miss anything of this renovation project. We will keep you updated on the progress and, of course, of any spectacular happenings. Enjoy!
