AM Real Estate Development sells Capgemini head office; triple A Building Utrecht
Utrecht, the Netherlands, 14 May 2014 – Real estate developer AM Real Estate Development has sold the new Capgemini (consultancy and IT services) head office in Leidsche Rijn Centrum Noord. The office building comprises 21,000 m2 of lettable floor space and is being rented in its entirety by Capgemini. DTZ Zadelhoff realised this transaction in cooperation with their colleagues of 3stone Real Estate.
The Capgemini head office is parallel to the A2 motorway, adjacent to the new Leidsche Rijn Centrum railway station with its outstanding public transport amenities, and in the immediate vicinity of a future shopping district. Capgemini has been closely involved with the development of the new building from the very beginning. Its extensive floor area and its proximity to the railway station makes it ideal for the new way of working that Capgemini implemented several years ago.
The offices, which were designed by Ibelings van Tilburg Architecten in Rotterdam, consist of four floors located above a two-storey car park. A car park building has also been erected alongside. The main principles behind the development of the offices by AM Real Estate Development are the application of the new way of working and sustainability. As a result, the offices have been awarded the prestigious BREEAM-NL ‘Very Good’ design certificate.
From the definitive design stage, BAM Utiliteitsbouw Utrecht region, BAM Advies & Engineering and BAM Techniek have been responsible for the engineering aspects and completed the buildings using BIM and lean construction techniques in just fourteen months.
