The Dutch Government Buildings Agency (RGD) and the Facilicom Consortium PPS B30 have signed the contract for the Bezuidenhoutseweg 30 project in The Hague.
The Facilicom PPS B30 Consortium, which was announced as preferred bidder in March 2014, is made up of Facilicom, KAAN Architecten, Braaksma & Roos Architectenbureau, Deerns, Pieters Bouwtechniek and Rebel Group.
The contract includes the Design, Build, Finance, Maintain and Operate (DBFMO) of the project for 30 years. The comercial close took place on 3 April 2014.
This National Heritage Site, built for the Department of Agriculture, Nature Management and Fisheries in 1917 and subsequently occupied by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation until 2013, will soon be converted into the Dutch government's premier new knowledge centre.
In 2016, the renovated B30 building will serve as the joint premises for the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB), the Netherlands Institute for Social Research (SCP), the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA) and the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli).
