The former H-building of Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas) has been renovated by the construction team of Aannemerscombinatie PIF into a new Ocean building. Architectural contractor Winters and its partners TES Installatietechniek and Van Delft Groep have worked hard in recent months on the realization of this project.
PIF started the work on 1 February and the festive delivery took place on 18 July, entirely according to plan. Arend de Boer, the director of PIF and Thea van Sambeeck, projectleader Campus, signed the delivery documents with a satisfied feeling. Nico van Os from the Executive Board of BUas then expressed a word of thanks for the dedication and involvement of the construction team and the designers and advisors were also present.
The interior of the Ocean building is already well on its way. The renovation has created – in addition to the more traditional classrooms – a spacious, open learning and working environment. On both sides you have a view of the campus grounds and the adjacent green zone with the Molenley river. From the 3th of September the learning environment of the Ocean building will be partly in use. Lectures will be teaching in the lecture hall(s) on the ground floor and the classrooms at the different floors. The Ocean building will be fully furnished in October, after which Leisure & Events will move into the building during the autumn holidays.
