New research & development center
Nijmegen, the Netherlands

Innovation is a vital element for the growth-strategy of Heinz in Europe. To be sure to make the best products, Heinz wanted to centralize their global innovation activities in a brand-new research & development center. The Heinz innovation Center must bring all functionalities close together and create a vibrant, dynamic atmosphere that stimulates interaction and innovation.

Bilfinger Tebodin came up with architectural and technical design and construction management.  Corporate values, such as openness, transparency, honesty and pureness have been a guide for the overall architecture of the exterior and interior of the building. The design achieves maximum comfort with minimum energy usage and the system has proven itself cost effective and sustainable.
