ABT & BARCODE Architects win design competition for Earth Simulation Laboratory21-11-2014
The team of ABT & BARCODE Architects has won the European tender for the redevelopment of the former Robert J. van de Graaff Laboratory to a new high-end Earth Simulation Laboratory (ESL). The Faculty of Geosciences, which is currently located in several over the Utrecht Science Park (USP) scattered buildings will in the coming years, be concentrated in the northwest corner of the campus. The redevelopment of the former Graaff Laboratory into a new modern work and research environment with state of the art facilities is an important link in the larger restructuring task of the USP.
The design development of the project has already started, the execution is scheduled for 2016 and mid-2017, the faculty will move into the new Earth Simulation Laboratory.
