Before the summer the Executive Board approved the final design of the ITC building in Langezijds on the UT campus. From the end of October 2019 until June 2020, the design team worked together with ITC community on a vision in which the values of ITC are paramount and recognizable. As a result of this co-creative process there is now a design that suits ITC, is future-proof, offers possibilities for flexible redesign and fits the campus.
We are proud to present this final design and in this video Rick ten Doeschate, the project architect of CIVIC Architects, explains the vision behind it. The final design will now be further developed into a Technical Design. The design book is available in a printed version at the office of the Dean’s secretary. So if you would like to see the design in more details please contact DIR Secretariat (ITC). Find an image impression of the final design here and watch this video were Annemarie Arets talks about the relocation of the ITC to the campus.
In October, the demolition of the Langezijds building will partly start, to prepare it for renovation. The demolition of the facades and roof will already start in the short term and will be visible from the outside.
Once the Technical Design is ready, the European tendering phase can start. The selection of contractors has already started and we are now working on the pre-selection for the architectural and the installation lots. Probably five parties per lot will be selected to tender a bid. The final parties to realize the renovation of the Langezijds will be selected in January 2021.
To connect the Langezijds building tot the infrastructure network of the campus, preparations are started around the Paviljoen building, where currently the Campus and Facility Management department is located. The image impression already shows the extent of it.
In October, we are planning to organize 3D interactive tours online, to view the inside design of the new building and to give you the option to ask questions to the design team to the design team.
